History of Armenian football

I think we lack such thread. Not only for us to discuss Armenian football's past days, but also for non-Armenians who don't know much about Armenian football legacy, here they can go through our football history in one thread. Starting from the first Armenian football clubs in the Ottoman empire in the cities of Contantinople (Araks Football Club Constantinople 1908), Smyrna (Armenian hunting club of Smyrna), Trabizond (Artsiv), Nikomedia (Atlas), to the Soviet Armenian time with our great Ararat Yerevan or smaller clubs like Shirak or FC Kotayk and later the Armenian NT after independence.

We can discuss players like Khoren Oganesyan, Arkady Andreasyan, Eduard Markarov, Levon Ishtoyan, Hamlet Mkhitaryan. As well as diaspora players and clubs from Youri Djorkaeff and Eric Assadourian to ASOA Valence.

I would like this thread to be like a collection or an album. Everyone should share his (or his parents/grandparents) stories and memories, videos of past games, pictures and articles in a blog-ish way. I will try to collect as much information as possible throughout the web and will unite them here.

Also I ask the admins to make this thread sticky, as a source of information.

Early period

Armenian population in the Ottoman Empire before total uprooting as a consequence of premeditated and state–orchestrated genocide plan of the elimination of the Armenian nation on the territory of the Ottoman Turkey circa 1915 was among well modernized elements of the empire which although the segregationist and discriminative nature of the ottomans played significant role in the social, economical and cultural life of the empire.

The European influence and the acknowledgment with the traditions and principles of the European education triggered unprecedented activity in the sport life and sportive activity. Enough to say that dozens of Armenian sport clubs and boy scout organizations appeared among the Armenian communities from Istanbul to Van, from Trabzon to Adana.

The first Armenian football clubs were founded in the Ottoman capital Constantinople (now Istanbul) in the early 20th century.

Football was brought to the Ottoman Empire by the British sailors. The first professional club was founded in Smyrna (Izmir). It participated in the 1906 Olympic Games, where an Armenian named Zareh Kouyoumdjian played.

The first game between Armenian an Turkish teams was recorded in 1906. Armenian club called Balta-Liman (after a neighborhood of Constantinople, now called Baltalimanı) met with Galatasaray. Later, Balta-Liman was dissolved and two new clubs were founded: Araks and Tork.


Araks Football Club, Constantinople, 1910


Football team of the Armenian hunting club of Izmir, “Marmnamarz”, 1910


The Armenian Youth “Tsitsernak” football team, Istanbul, 1910


The football team of St. Poghos’ School of Tarson, 1914

After World War I started and the Armenian Genocide was ordered, all athletic activities stopped.

Soviet era (1920s-1991)

Oldest records of football teams in Soviet Armenia goes back to 1926-1927, when the Trans-Caucasian Championship was organized in Tbilisi. Three South Caucasian countries participated: Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.

The first professional club in Armenia was established in 1935 as Spartak and was later renamed Ararat. FC Ararat Yerevan is notable for its wins in the Soviet Championship and the Cup in 1973 and 1975.


Ararat 1973





FC Ararat also reached the quarter-finals of the 1974–75 European Cup, losing to the eventual champions, Franz Beckenbauer's FC Bayern Munich. The first stadium in Armenia was named Spartak as well, built in the late 1920s in front of what is now the Yerevan Circus.

In 1958, Armenias second big Club Shirak F.C. was founded in Leninakan, and played in the Soviet First League until Armenia's independence in 1991.

Marcelo Kiremitdjian "Djian" was a star player in Brazil from 1987 to 2003. He played for the Brazilian NT as a center back. He went on to be a soccer analyst on TV. I believe he is now a scout in France.

I was searching long time for publications about history of Armenian football, ecpacially in pre-soviet times. I found one book on this topic in Russian. It's called "About the history of Armenian football: from the Bosphorus to the Caspian Sea" ("Из истории армянского футбола: От Босфора до Каспия"). It was written by Aleksandr Grigoryan in 2003 (Coach of Luch-Energiya Vladivostok).

If I find some time in the next days I will translate the most interesting parts of the books review/excerpt (e.g. first matches of British sailors vs. Armenian teams around 1900 etc.).

http://archive.today/HPmD#selection-843.1-843.54

Great quote by a Soviet sport journalist (translated as good as possible):

"With patience of the sun, gradually nurtured fruit,
football has continuously cultivated in Armenia,
evolved its characteristic features,
in connection with ethnography, special character,
nature of cultivated people,
and temperament of those."

Martin Ivanovich Merzhanov

Some points from Aleksandr Grigoryans book on Armenian football.

In Ottoman empire:

- 2 clubs were established around 1900 in Smyrna, "Armenia" and "Vaspurakan"

- "Tork" (red-black were the clubs colors) from Constantinople is considered as the first club and the first ever line-up was: Vahan Matevosian, Simon Papikyan, Vahagn Cerez, Yeghishe Kadzhuni, Eznik Kadzhuni, Hayk Semerdjyan, Gabriel Madzharyan, Azadur Potikyan, Aram Mazmanian & Aram Goryan.

- In 1911 club "Armenia" from Smyrna participated in a tournament wich was organized by the Greek FA, "Armenia" won this tournament. The club dissolved/emigrated to Greece after Turkish occupation of the city in 1922.

-Armenian clubs in Ottoman empire started to organize regular tournaments in 1912, first winner was club "Kilika" from Antalya, wich was a club of an Armenian college.

- 2 Armenian clubs were established in Antep, "Ararat" and "Amazasp" in 1919

- Matches between Armenian clubs and players of an Indian battalion of the British army were held in Malatia, before the Armenian population of Cilicia was deported or fled to regions were the Entente Powers were still in rule (Syria, Lebanon, Palestine).

(-In 1890 a football and rugby club of an Armenian college was founded in the City of Kolkata wich still exists today, name of the club was "Armenia".)

...part on the Russian Empire and diaspora coming...

Looking forward to reading about the USSR and Russian Empire eras, Mish. Armenians have always been natural footballers and helped influence Russian football especiallybetween the 20's and 50's.

Thank you Dima and ArmNT for the feedback, I appreciate. I've been collecting a lot of material wich I'm going to share in this thread bit-by-bit. Still a lot of information wich isn't available or difficult to access, e.g. the mentioned period between 20's and 50's.

However, here's the next part:

-Armenian teams have emerged in the Russian Empire in the cities of Kars, Shushi, Baku, Batumi, Tbilisi, Nakhichevan-on-Don (also known as Nor-Nakhichevan, an Armenian populated district in Rostov-on-Don).

-The pioneers of Armenian football in the Kuban region were the brothers Yakov & Nikolai Arakelov.

-At that time many Armenians were part of different teams in the Kuban region, some names: Chilingarov, Kukulyants, Kostanov, Babayants, Davidov, Bagdasarov, Dangulov, Pelikyan, Merzhanov and other notable ethnic Armenians.

-Some pioneers of Georgian football were ethnic Armenians as well: Ruben Alxasov and some of his friends have founded the first
official football club in the city of Poti & A.Turkyants & P.Pogosov laid first stones of football in the port-city of Batumi.

-The largest football community of Armenians evolved and worked in Baku:

-At the beginning of the 1920’s the majority of engineers & directors at the oil fields and factories were foreigners (Englishman, Germans, Norwegians etc.). All of this groups had their own football club (separated by nationality) and they didn’t let locals participate, considering them incapable of playing the complex game of football. So the first champion of the city was the British football club.

-But the interest towards that sport arose in the proletarian quarters of Baku pretty fast and thus the first club of local players emerged.

-It was usual that the first teams played together only once and „dissolved“ after one single match and never ever played in the same constellation again.

-It was 1911 when first professional clubs were founded, like in the Armenian district Armenikent the team „Stella“. Other clubs emerged in other districts as well, „Sportsmen“, „Askold“ and „Unitas“. These teams were part of different schools & colleges.

-One of the most notable organizer and player of that time was Paryur Parsadanov (a right-back), who was considered the best player of his time & captain of the football club „Unitas“.

-Parsadaov is considered as the Armenian football patriarch and was named in 1934 as one of 6 referees who were allowed to lead matches all around the SU. He was also the first Armenian and first men from Baku who received the decoration "Master of football sports" (мастера спорта по футболу). Many years he was the head football functionary of the Azerbaijan SSR and director of the Transcaucasian sports institute. But his main achievement was the establishment of the best Armenian team of the 30's, club "Tempa" (tempo) from Baku.

-Clubs from Baku during that period are considered today as „Azerbaijani clubs“ and are part of Azeri football history, but the teams consisted mostly of Armenians, most notable: Paryur Parsadanov, Vladimir Parsadanov (Paryurs brother), Giorgi Ter Akopov, Ashot Sarkisov and many others.

Armenian football club; Dork / Տորք. One of the first football clubs of Constantinople, founded in 1908.



Football was brought to the Ottoman Empire by British sailors in 1890. It was quickly adopted by the Greek community of Constantinople. The French, Italian and Armenian communities also took up the game.

However, Sultan Abdul Hamid II was not prepared to see the sporting virus spread to the Muslim population of the empire. He claimed that football would keep students away from their studies and their Koran. Police would often invade the pitch, arresting as many Turkish players as they could catch.

A brief history of football in Artsakh

Again the name Parsadanov appears in this context, wich is inextricably linked to the first days of Armenian football. The Parsadanov brothers were the builders of the first football team in Shushi & organized the first official matches in the town wich was called „little Armenian Paris“ at that time. Parsadanovs visit to the native land in the summer of 1913 was marked by the holding of an inter-city tournament, which was attended by three teams: a team from Baku, Tbilisi and the team of Shushi. Baku, led by Paruyr Parsadanovym outplayed Shushi (8:0), Tbilisi (3-0) and won the first football tournament held in eastern Armenia! The value of this tournament is difficult to overestimate. As many viewers who watched the games have become advocates of the new game, returning after a summer vacation home (Shushi was a tourist destination in the south caucasus).

Many fine players who played in teams of Baku and Yerevan, were born in Artsakh, however Artsakh could never produce a high class football club itself, but sometimes teams from Artsakh managed to excel in national competitions. So, in 1939 as „Spartak“ from Stepanakert made it to the semi-finals of the Azeri SSR cup-tournament.

In 1946 „Spartak“ from Stepanakert had reached the cup final of the Azeri SSR when their opponent turned to be Baku’s "Spartak, headed by the famous Venik Sarkisov. The match was held in Baku at the "Dynamo" stadium. Long before the match started the visiting fans from Stepanakert (who were accompanied & supported by residents from Baku’s „Armenikent“ district) filled the whole south stand of stadium. Five minutes before the end of regular time the score was still 0-0 and the team from Karabakh received a chance to score from the penalty spot. For unknown reasons the central defender (the only non-Armenian in the team) of Stepanakert decided to take the penalty and missed pitifully. His shot went over the bar and the ball flew outside the stadium. However Baku’s team achieved to score in the very last minute of the dubious game and won the trophy.

The next time the Artsakh team made it to the cup final was in 1953 and again they lost to a team from Baku (it was „Dynamo“ this time) just one step away from taking the cup home with them. Stepanakert was coached by the legendary Artem Markarov and the team roster was the following: Albert Baghdasaryan, Gregory Tovmasyan Vazgen Hanandyan Suren Dzhabiyan, Sergei Arutyunov, Gregory Hakobyan, Beniamian Apkarian, Nikolai Petrosyan, Suren Harutunyan, Suren Badalyan, Gurgen Terterjan, Levon Harutyunyan, Carlos Adamian, Robert Ovanesov, Robert Petrosyan, Jacob Hovyan, Benik Arzumanyan.
First time that a club from Stepanakert took part in the USSR cup was in 1950. It was „Dynamo“ (Lernayin Artsakh FC) who lost in the first round of the cup against „Pishevik“ from Odessa 0-2. It took them another 37 years to gain a participation in the USSR cup again. This time they lost to Karpaty Lviv, but only after the penalty shoot-out 2:4 (regular time ended 1:1).

Debut of Stepanakerts "Karabakh" (Lernayin Artsakh FC) in the championship of the Soviet Union took place in 1969. In 1977, the "Karabakh" became the champion of the Azeri SSR and again won the right to play in the second league of the championship of the USSR. Back then many interesting players were part of the team, among which are the legendary Araratsi Hovhannes Zanazanyan and Suren Martirosyan.

In 1979, the "Karabakh" has achieved the best result in the history of performances in the USSR championships (2nd league) - third place, which they were able to replicate in the last championship of the Union in 1991. In 1989, „Karabakh“ changed their name and began performing in the USSR championships as "Artsakh". In December of the same year „Artsakh“ could hold first matches outside of the USSR, with the assistance of the Catholicos of All Armenians Vazgen I. In Syria „Artsakh“ played against teams "Assad" (1:0, 0:0), „Homenmen" (0:0), „Homenetmen" (1:0) and the country's U-21 team (1:2).

In 1990 Mali’s FA send an invitation to the Soviet embassy in Mali (ambassador was Ashot Tsarievich Melik-Shahnazaryan) to organize friendly matches against „Artsakh“ in Bamako. But the government of the Azeri SSR made ​​a fuss and the Foreign Ministry of the USSR send a telegram to the Soviet Embassy in Bamako to cancel the plans of a tour in Africa, as the functionaries believed that "Artsakh" would fail to adequately represent the Soviet football abroad.

However Melik-Shahnazaryan had the support of the USSR’s Football Federation president Vyacheslav Koloskov and they replied to the Foreign Ministry that it wouldn’t be possible to cancel the tour as the tickets were already sold out. So Artsakh went to Mali and won both matches, against Mali’s champion (editor's note: Djoliba Athletic Club) 3-1 and against the national team of Mali 1-0. Soviet ambassador Shahnazaryan replied with the following telegram to Moscow: "The game and the results of „Artsakh“ confirmed the high level of domestic football."

With the start of the war many players had to take up arms instead of a leather ball to protect their homeland and this footballers fell for the independence of Artsakh: Varuzhan Babayan (missing person), Vladimir Hairyan, Gregory Aghajanian, Ashot Adamian, Loris Grigoryan, Suren Hakobyan. RIP our heroes.
