FC Sioni Bolnisi is a Georgian football club based in Bolnisi. The club was founded in 1936.

History[edit]

After spending several years in the lower divisions of Georgian football between 1990 and 1995, Sioni won promotion to Umaglesi Liga for the 1995/96 season and have been playing there ever since. In the 2003/04 season, Sioni and FC WIT Georgia shared the first position in the league, and the title was decided in a championship playoff. WIT won the match 2–0, but the crowd violence during the match lead UEFA to ban Sioni from the UEFA Cup participation.[1]

However, in 2005/06, Sioni won the league and represented Georgia in the UEFA Champions League 2006-07, where they defeated FK Baku from Azerbaijan in the first qualifying round,[2] but were eliminated by Bulgarian champions Levski Sofia in the second stage, losing 2–0 both home and away.[3]
