CSKA (Russian: Профессиональный футбольный клуб – ЦСКА, or English: Professional Football Club — Central Sports Club of Army (Moscow)) is a Russian professional football club based in the Russian capital city of Moscow.

History

Officially, CSKA is a professional club and thus no longer a section of the Russian military's CSKA sports club. However, the Russian Ministry of Defense is a PFC CSKA shareholder, and the central club claims them as their own (see CSKA Moscow). The Moscow Army men won their 10th national title back in 2006 and they are one of the most successful clubs in the Russian football, having an extensive legacy in the Soviet football as well. CSKA won the Soviet championship seven times (1946, 1947, 1948, 1950, 1951, 1970, 1991), silver – 1938, 1945, 1949, 1990, bronze – 1939, 1955, 1956, 1958, 1964, 1965; the Soviet Cup five times (1945, 1948, 1951, 1955, 1991); the Russian Cup in 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2011; won the Russian Premier League champions title in 2003, 2005 and 2006, finishing second in 1998, 2002, 2004, 2008 and 2010, bronze 1999, 2007, and the Russian Super Cup in 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2009. Back in 2004, the club received a major financial infusion from a sponsorship deal with Sibneft, an oil company owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Abramovich did not take an ownership interest in the club, as he was the owner of English Premiership power Chelsea and UEFA rules allow only one club controlled by any one entity (person or corporation) to participate in European club competition in a given season. The partnership with Sibneft lasted until 2006, when VTB became the sponsor of the club. CSKA started 2009 without a shirt sponsor.

CSKA won the 2005 UEFA Cup by beating Sporting Clube de Portugal 3–1 in the Final at the Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon. It became the first Russian club to win a major European title, as well as the first one to complete a treble.

In 2013, the club is due to move into a new stadium.

On 16 March 2010, CSKA qualified for the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League after defeating Sevilla 3–2 on aggregate.

Nickname

Originally, CSKA was nicknamed Horses, presumably because their first training facilities were located in the building that previously was Prince Yusupov's stable.[1] It was considered offensive, but later it was transformed into The Horses, and currently this nickname is used by players and fans as the name, along with other variants such as Army Men (Russian: армейцы) and Red-Blues (Russian: красно-синие ).

Stadium

CSKA has its own stadium called "Light-Athletic Football Complex CSKA" and abbreviated as LFK CSKA. Its capacity is very small for a club of its stature; no more than 4,600 spectators. This is one of the primary reasons the club uses other venues in the city. Their new stadium broke ground in 2008 and is due to be completed in 2013. In the meantime, CSKA has been playing in Arena Khimki since 2010. They are currently sharing the stadium with rivals FC Dynamo Moscow, as they too are awaiting the completion of their own new stadium.
