Former logo when the club was known as FC Avan Academy

It was founded in 2017 as FC Avan Academy by Ruben Hayrapetyan, on the basis of the young players of the Yerevan Football Academy graduates, as well as many young players from FC Pyunik.[1]

They club's inaugural match took place in July 2017 against Erebuni SC. The friendly match ended with a score of 3-1 in favour of Avan Academy.

At the beginning of 2018, the club was taken over by the Russian-Armenian businessman Samvel Karapetyan who renamed the club as Ararat-Moskva. The club was reorganized as soon as FC Ararat Moscow in Russia was denied certificate for the next season.[2]

After being promoted to the Armenian Premier League, it was again renamed, this time to Ararat-Armenia, and will participate in the Premier League with this name.

Managed by Artak Oseyan, the club played at the 2017–18 Armenian First League competition.[3]
