BackgroundEdit

Since the Russian football league system was established in 1992, the main team representing Vladikavkaz changed ownership structure several times, also changing the team name from FC Spartak Vladikavkaz to FC Spartak-Alania and FC Alania and back to Spartak. In the 2018–19 Russian Professional Football League season, the team was financed by the provincial government and played as Spartak. Before the 2019–20 season, a new team, privately owned and called FC Alania was organized and licensed for PFL. However, FC Spartak also remained in the league for 2019–20, even though many players and coaches moved to the "new Alania".[1]

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in Russia, 2019–20 Russian Football National League season was abandoned and none of the teams were relegated. After the licensing, the league had 23 teams eligible for the 2020–21 season. Having an odd number of teams would mean one team would get a bye on each matchday and the league preferred to have an even number of teams, therefore it invited PFL teams to apply for the license. Out of the teams that applied, on 24 July 2020 Alania was selected by the Russian Football Union for promotion to FNL.[2]
