FC Baikal Irkutsk

FC Baikal Irkutsk (Russian: ФК Байкал Иркутск) was a Russian football team from Irkutsk, founded in 2009. It was relegated from the second-tier FNL back to PFL at the end of the 2015–16 season, but it did not receive a professional license for the 2016–17 season and thus folded, with its spot taken by FC Zenit Irkutsk. It was called FC Radian-Baikal Irkutsk before June 2012.
