After a disappointing 8th place finish in the 2018–19 season, the club was sold to Karen Abrahamyan, who rebranded the club FC Noah in 2019.

Colours and badge[edit]

As FC Artsakh the club's main kit colours were red and white, however following the rebranding, the club chose black and a light green to represent the club. Umbro became the kit supplier for the 2019-20, following two years of using Nike.

Badge history[edit]

From 2017 to 2019, the club operated as FC Artsakh, bearing a red round badge with an eagle. Following the 2019 rebranding as FC Noah, the club's emblem was changed to a simple black text:
"Yerevan Armenia Football Club Noah".

Stadium[edit]

At the beginning phase of the 2018–19 Armenian Premier League season, FC Noah used the Mika Stadium, located in the Shengavit neighborhood of Yerevan, as their home ground until matchday 8. They were then forced to leave the Mika Stadium due to the inappropriate pitch conditions, and between matchday 9 and 14 they played at the Pyunik Stadium before moving to the artificial-turf pitch of the Dzoraghbyur Training Centre at the eastern outskirts of Yerevan. For the 2019–20 Armenian Premier League season, FC Noah played at the Alashkert Stadium located in the same neighbourhood of Yerevan.
