Yenisey-STM Rugby Club (Russian: Регбийный клуб «Енисей-СТМ») is a Russian rugby union club founded in 1975. It is one of the two powerful Krasnoyarsk clubs, the other being their cross town rivals Krasny Yar Krasnoyarsk. They participate in the Professional Rugby League, the premier rugby championship of Russia, and in 2015–16 qualified for the European Rugby Challenge Cup, making them the first Russian rugby union club ever to compete in a major European club competition. With an operating budget of €3.5m they are the second largest club in Russia after VVA-Podmoskovye Monino.


The club was founded in 1975 as Trud Krasnoyarsk (Russian: Труд, "labour"), but in 1978 was renamed Sibtyazhmash Krasnoyarsk (Russian: Сибтяжмаш). It took its current name on 12 April 2000. STM is an abbreviation for Sibtyazhmash ("Siberian Heavy Machinery", a local firm), while the Enisei is the river that flows through Krasnoyarsk. In the 2008 season the team finished in third place in the Russian championship. The club competed in the European Rugby Challenge Cup for the first time in 2015–16 and have qualified for the 2016–17 competition.
