FC Dinamo Batumi is a Georgian football club based in Batumi, Adjara. They regularly play in top division of Georgian football – Umaglesi Liga. The club plays their home games at Chele Arena, Kobuleti.

History[edit]

Dinamo was founded in Batumi in 1923. [1] However, before the club formed, there were some other teams founded in the city. In 1923 newly-established two clubs, called Mezgvauri (The Sailor) and Tsiteli Raindi (The Red Knight) merged and became Dinamo Batumi. [1]

Football was becoming more popular in Adjara later, although Dinamo didn't had any success in the lower divisions of Soviet championship. However, there were some players in the club, who later became successful footballers in USSR, including Revaz Chelebadze, Nodar Khizanishvili and Vakhtang Koridze. The famous Greek footballer Andreas Niniadis also started his career in the club. He later played for Olympiacos and Greece national football team.

The success for the Batumi-based club came when they won Georgian Cup in 1998, after losing two previous finals. The club defeated Dinamo Tbilisi in final. The goals were scored by Aleksandre Kantidze and Davit Chichveishvili. [2] The club won Georgian Super Cup during the same year as well. They again defeated Dinamo Tbilisi, by 2-1. [3]

In 1995, Dinamo played in European competitions for the first time in the club's history. In 1995–96 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup they defeated FK Obilić in the qualifying round, but later were eliminated by Celtic. Dinamo managed to draw with PSV Eindhoven in the following season of UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. Goals in this game were scored by Amiran Mujiri and Luc Nilis. [1] However, the Georgian club lost the second game of the tie in The Netherlands by the score 0-3.

Dinamo hasn't yet won Erovnuli Liga. They were runner-ups two times: in 1997–98 and in 2014–15.
