In 2005, the main Rotor team played under the name of FC Rotor-2 Volgograd, as the parent club had lost their professional licence. Subsequently, Rotor-2 was renamed Rotor, and a Rotor reserve side entered the Volgograd Oblast Championship. Following Rotor's promotion to the second-tier Russian National Football League for the 2017–18 season, the reserve team received professional license for the third-tier Russian Professional Football League. Following Rotor's promotion to Russian Premier League for the 2020–21 season, Rotor-2 left PFL as RPL conducts their own Under-20 league for reserve teams. Rotor was relegated after one season at the top level, and Rotor-2 re-entered PFL for the 2021–22 season.
As of 18 February 2022, according to the FNL 2 website.
