Akademiya-Lada-M (Russian: "Академия-Лада-М") was a Russian association football club from Tolyatti, Russia. The club was founded in 1991 as a result of the merger between Energiya (Энергия) and Lada-Simbirsk (Лада-Симбирск). Before the 2010 season, two teams from Tolyatti, FC Togliatti and FC Lada Togliatti, were excluded from the professional leagues, with FC Akademiya representing Tolyatti at the time.
