HistoryEdit

OriginsEdit

The club was founded in 1960 as Spartak Brest and joined Soviet Class B (second-tier league) the same year. After the 1962 season they were relegated as a result of league reorganization. They came close to promotion twice in 1964 and 1967 but lost the final round both times. They were finally promoted on their third attempt in 1969, but the following year they again dropped to the third tier due to league reorganization.[2] In 1972 the team was renamed to Bug Brest and finally, in 1976 to Dуnamo Brest. From 1970 till the end of Soviet era the club was playing in the Soviet third-tier league. Dynamo Brest had a strong connection with Dinamo Minsk during these years (as both clubs were affiliated to Dinamo Sports Society) and often accepted young Minsk team players on loan.[3]

Belarusian Premier LeagueEdit

In 1992 Dynamo Brest joined Belarusian Premier League and have been playing there ever since. Their best result was a third place in inaugural 1992 season, and they were finishing in the middle and bottom parts of the table ever since. In 2007 Dynamo Brest won Belarusian Cup, also securing their only UEFA Cup participation. During 2012 season they were using the name FC Brest due to legal issues with using a Dynamo brand name the rights to which were claimed by Belarusian Dynamo Sport Society. This issue was resolved only by the end of the year. In the 2017 season, Dinamo Brest drew an average home league attendance of 5,689, the highest in the league.[4]
