Armenia

Ararat Yerevan FC

Ararat was founded in 1935. It was called Spartak from 1935 to 1937 and from 1954 to 1962, and Dynamo from 1938 to 1953. In 1963, the club was renamed Ararat, the current name in use by the club.

Soviet championships

By 1945-1947, Ararat swept the Armenian SSR cup which propagated the club into the Soviet Top League by 1949. The team played in the top league in 1949-1950, 1960-1963, and 1965-1991. In 1971, Ararat won Silver Prize in the Championships of the USSR. In 1973 won the championship of the Soviet Union and the Soviet Cup (in a memorable final game against Dynamo Kyiv). This feat was repeated in the Soviet Cup again in 1975. In 1971 and 1976 Spring (there were two Soviet championships in 1976 -- Spring and Fall) they were the league runners-up. In 1974-75, after their title in the Soviet league, Ararat played in the European Cup, reaching the quarterfinals, losing to defending and future champion Bayern Munich with a 2-1 aggregate (0-2 in Munich and 1-0 in Yerevan). Since their debut in the European Cup tournaments in 1972, they have won 16 of their 36 matches with 4 draws.

Modern history

Since the 1991 independence of Armenia from the Soviet Union, Ararat has attained the Armenian Championship only once in 1993 and won four silver prizes (1997, 1999, 2000 and 2008) and one bronze prize (1994). In addition, the club has won the Armenian Cup five times (1993, 1994, 1995, 1997 and 2008) and were finalists in 2001 and 2007. They also were very close to taking the Armenian title in 2007, however the unexpected resignation of head coach Varuzhan Sukiasyan changed the atmosphere on the team and the club ended up in fourth place. In March 2008, former coach Varuzhan Sukiasyan returned to take charge of the team again. After failing to take the title from Pyunik in 2008, Varuzhan Sukiasyan left the club.
