Zira FK (Azerbaijani: Zirə Futbol Klubu) is an Azerbaijani football club based in Baku. The club participates in the Azerbaijan Premier League.

History[edit]

The club was established in 2014 and immediately joined the Azerbaijan First Division.[1]

Despite finishing 2nd in its inaugural season in the Azerbaijan Premier League,[2] the club wasn't allowed to compete in the UEFA Europa League.[3][why?]

On 27 December 2016, Adil Shukurov had his contract as manager terminated by mutual consent, with Aykhan Abbasov taking over as manager until the end of the 2016–17 season.[4] Abbasov resigned as manager on 29 August 2018,[5] with Samir Abbasov being announced as his replacement the same day.[6]
