History
• FC Ararat Yerevan were the big footballing force of Soviet-era Armenia, but the landscape in the independent nation was changed with the formation of a new club, FC Homentmen Yerevan in 1992; Homentmen is an abbreviation of Armenian Youth Sports Union.

• The new club – boasting Armenia's Golden Player, one-time Ararat and Soviet Union midfielder Khoren Hovhannisyan – shared the independent nation's first league title with FC Shirak but were renamed Pyunik (meaning Phoenix) in 1995, winning their second and third league crowns in 1996 and 1997.

• The trail went cold for a while but the Phoenix emerged from the flames dramatically in the 2000s; Samvel Darbinyan led them to the 2001 crown and they lifted the title every season for the remainder of that decade.

• Vardan Minasyan featured in Pyunik's first six league titles as a midfielder and, having won the 2004 crown as assistant, added three more after returning as head coach in 2008; captain Sargis Hovsepyan won a record tenth league championship with the club in 2010.

• Youth development has become a central principle of Pyunik's operations, with Edgar Manucharyan, Robert Arzumanyan, Gevorg Ghazaryan and Henrik Mkhitaryan all recent success stories.
