HistoryEdit

The club was formed by the International Turkmen-Turkish University in 2003 under the name HTTU Aşgabat (Turkmen: Halkara Türkmen-Türk Uniwersiteti futbol topary Aşgabat).

In 2012, the team placed 3rd in the Ýokary Liga.[2]

In 2013, HTTU won the Ýokary Liga, Turkmenistan Super Cup, and Eskişehir Cup.[3][4] Süleýman Muhadow scored 23 goals during the season, placing second in the golden boot race.

The following year, in the wake of several important departures, including the club's captain, Rovshen Meredov was appointed manager. Under Meredov, HTTU reached the final of the Turkmenistan Super Cup, losing 4–2 to FC Ahal.[5] As a result of its success in the 2013 season, HTTU earned a spot in the 2014 AFC President's Cup in the Philippines, eventually defeating North Korean side Rimyongsu 2–1 in the final.[6] Suleyman Muhadov was named both tournament MVP and top scorer with 11 goals.[7]

From 2016, the club changed its name to Ýedigen FC and was relegated from the Ýokary Liga.[8]
