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


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]
