ZFK CSKA Moscow (Russian: ЖФК ЦСКА Москва) is the women's team of Russian football club PFC CSKA Moscow, itself a branch of sports society CSKA Moscow. The club participates in the Russian Women's Football Championship, the top division of Russian women football.

History[edit]

The section first competed in 1991, in the short-lived Soviet Championship's second level, as CSKA-Transexpo.[1] Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union that same year, it registered in the Russian Supreme Division, where it competed for two seasons before it folded.

Two decades later, CSKA again registered in the second-tier Russian First League, but it was again disbanded after just one season. However, following the disbanding of Zorky Krasnogorsk near the end of the 2015 Top Division, FK Rossiyanka filled its vacancy for the next season and the new team was registered as CSKA in the 2016 championship. Its first game, a 1–1 draw against FK Chertanovo, coincided with the 93rd anniversary of the men’s CSKA's first football match.[2] CSKA ended the championship second-to-last, while Rossiyanka won its fifth title.

For the 2017 season several key Rossiyanka players moved to the team, which rose to top-table positions.[3] In July, during the inter-season summer pause, it became a CSKA official section.[4] Two months later the team won its first title after defeating Chertanovo 1–0 in the Russian Cup final.
