FCI Tallinn (FC Infonet Tallinn) is a professional football club, based in Tallinn, Estonia, that competes in the Meistriliiga, the top flight of Estonian football.

Founded in 2002, the club has played in the Meistriliiga since the 2013 season and have never been relegated from the Estonian top division. The club won the league in the 2016 season.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 2002. Before the 2011 season, the club merged with Esiliiga club FC Atletik. They finished the 2011 season in second place, but were beaten in the promotion play-offs by Kuressaare 1–5 on aggregate. Infonet won the 2012 Esiliiga season and were promoted to the top tier Meistriliiga. Infonet finished its first season in the Estonian top division with 6th place.

On 13 July 2015, Infonet beat amateur side Virtsu 36–0 in a 2015–16 Estonian Cup match, equalling Arbroath's 130 year old record for the largest margin of victory.[3]

Infonet made their European debut in the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League, but were defeated by Scottish Heart of Midlothian 3–6 on aggregate in the first qualifying round.

Infonet won the 2016 Meistriliiga season, amassing 80 points.[4]
