FK Yenisey Krasnoyarsk (ФК Енисей Красноярск) is a Russian football club based in Krasnoyarsk. The club plays in the Russian Football National League.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1937 as Lokomotiv Krasnoyarsk and spent one season in Class D of the Soviet league. In 1957 the club was re-formed and entered the Far East zone of Class B. In 1968 Lokomotiv was renamed Rassvet and, in 1970, Avtomobilist. In 1991 it became Metallurg, a title it held until February 2010 when it was renamed Metallurg-Yenisey (formally, Metallurg was excluded from the league and a new independent club Metallurg-Yenisey was admitted into the league).[1] In 2011, the club was renamed to Yenisey.[2]

Yenisey (or their predecessors) never played in the Soviet Top League or Russian Premier League. Their best result in Soviet League was a 2nd position in Group 7 of Class B in 1959, while their best result in Russian history was the 9th position in Russian First Division in 2001. Since the end of the Soviet Union the club has suffered relegation to the Second Division on five occasions, most recently in 2006. In the 2015–16 season, Yenisey took 16th spot in the FNL and should have been relegated, but one of the third-tier Russian Professional Football League zone winners, FC Smena Komsomolsk-na-Amure, refused to be promoted due to lack of financing, and Yenisey stayed in the FNL.[3]
