Formed: 1911
Nickname: Armeytsi (Army Men)

UEFA club competition honours (runners-up in brackets)
• UEFA Cup: 2005
• UEFA Super Cup: (2005)

Domestic honours (most recent triumph in brackets)
• League title: 10 (2006)
• Soviet/Russian Cup: 10 (2009)

• Founded as OLLS (Obshestvo Lyubiteley Lyzhnogo Sporta – Amateur Society of Skiing Sports), the club went through five other names before, in 1960, becoming CSKA – Central Sports Club of the Army. By then they were already a force to be reckoned with.

• Having finished fourth in their debut Soviet Top League season in 1936, they won the USSR Cup in 1945 and followed that up with league success 12 months later. It was the first of five Soviet Top League titles in six years, winning the league and cup double in 1948 and 1951.

• CSKA claimed the championship again in 1970, earning them a first tilt at European competition. It started promisingly enough, overcoming Galatasaray AŞ 4-1 on aggregate in the European Champion Clubs' Cup first round, but R. Standard de Liège ended their ambitions in the next stage.

• CSKA won the last Soviet Top League in 1991 but struggled after the collapse of the USSR – it was not until 2003, under Valeri Gazzaev, that they finally reined supreme in the Russian Premier-Liga.

• The club have claimed two more titles since, adding to five Russian Cups, but arguably their greatest achievement came in the UEFA Cup in 2005. CSKA became the first side from Russia to win a European title as they came from behind to beat Sporting Clube de Portugal 3-1 in the final in Lisbon.
