HistoryEdit

On 25 May 2020, FSC Dolgoprudny announced that it will merge into FC Olimp Khimki, with the new club called FC Olimp-Dolgoprudny.[1] On 16 June 2020, the new club passed licensing for the Russian Football National League and applied for admission to the league, along with two other candidates.[2] On 24 July 2020, Russian Football Union chose Alania Vladikavkaz to be promoted instead.[3]

On 23 May 2021, Olimp-Dolgoprudny secured the first place in their PFL zone and promotion to the Russian Football National League for the 2021–22 season.[4]

Following promotion, the main squad moved their base to Khimki and completely revamped the squad and coaching staff. A separate club, technically a farm-club of Olimp, was organized in the third tier as FC Olimp-Dolgoprudny-2. Several players who secured promotion in the previous season moved to that new club.
