Margveti Zestafoni was a Georgian association football club. It was based in Zestafoni.

History[edit]

In 1990 the Georgian Football Federation was founded to hold their own football competition and leave the Soviet football league system. Clubs like FC Dinamo Tbilisi and FC Guria Lanchkhuti gave up their place in the Soviet Top League to join.

At that time Zestafoni had their own club FC Metallurg Zestafoni. A new club, formed as Margveti Zestafoni, joined Pirveli Liga and was promoted in the first season. Margveti was a member of Umaglesi Liga and achieved their best season in 1995–96 by finishing runner-up. But in the 1997–98 season, Margveti finished at the bottom and was relegated. A new club using the city legend team name Metalurgi Zestafoni was formed in 1999. Margveti was declared bankrupt in 2000. FC Margveti Zestafoni faced financial problems and was relegated in 1998. In 2006 "Margveti-2006" was founded in the lower division and recently in Meore Liga, but it is different (municipal) club.

City rival[edit]

Although Metallurgi Zestafoni, Margveti Zestafoni and FC Zestafoni came from the same city, they never met in the league, and both clubs came from the succession of Metallurg Zestafoni.
