HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 1999 as Mika-Kasakh Ashtarak in the town of Ashtarak by the owner of Mika Corporation LLC, Mikhail Baghdasarov. In 2000, they achieved their first domestic title, winning the Armenian Cup.

In 2007, Mika relocated from Ashtarak to Yerevan. They were based in their own newly-built stadium in Yerevan.

However, by the end of the 2015–16 Armenian Premier League season, the club announced its retirement from professional football due to financial as well as non-financial difficulties.
