HistoryEdit

During the Soviet rule, Lokomotiv Yerevan football team was formed in 1945 after World War II, representing the state railway department of the city of Yerevan. They won the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic championship in 1963.

The current FC Lokomotiv Yerevan was founded in 2002 and participated in the Armenian First League during the same year. However, the club was dissolved in 2005 prior to the kick-off of the First League season, due to financial difficulties.[1]

In April 2018, it was announced that Lokomotiv Yerevan has returned to professional football, planning to take part in the 2018–19 Armenian First League championship; the 2nd tier of the Armenian football league system.[2] After returning to professional football, Lokomotiv played a friendly on 1 May 2018, defeating Ararat-2 by 2–1.
