HistoryEdit

Dnepr Mogilev was founded in 1960 under the name Khimik Mogilev and began playing in the Class B (second tier league) of Soviet championship, which at the time consisted of over 140 teams split into several regional zones. In 1963, the team relegated to the third tier due to league structure reorganization and changed their name to Spartak Mogilev. In 1970, they dropped to the fourth tier, but the next year were brought back to the third, both times due to further league reorganizations. In 1973, the club adopted their current name, Dnepr Mogilev. Dnepr would spend all subsequent Soviet-era seasons in the third-tier league, with one exception. In 1982 Anatoly Baidachny led Dnepr to winning their zone and then the final round between the zone winners and to promotion to the Soviet First League. The club, however, wasn't able to maintain their second-tier spot and relegated again the next year.[1]

In 1992 Dnepr joined newly created Belarusian Premier League. Team's results in the post-Soviet years varied from being a runners-up in 1992 and champions in 1998 to the unfortunate relegation in 2011. Since then, Dnepr has come back and relegated again in 2014. As of 2015, Dnepr is playing in the Belarusian First League.

In spring 2019, the club merged with Premier League team Luch Minsk, citing the willingness keep the city of Mogilev represented in top flight. The united club was named Dnyapro Mogilev. It inherited Luch's Premier League spot and licence, their sponsorships and most of the squad, while keeping only a few of Dnepr players and relocating to Mogilev. Dnepr continued its participation in youth tournaments independently from Luch.
