HistoryEdit

After reaching third place in 1995 and 2007, their first championship was won in 2011.[1] Before this they were one of the leading Kazakh teams in the football of the Soviet Union.

On 18 September 2006, Brazilian forward Nilton Pereira Mendes died after collapsing during a training session with the club.[2]

On 19 September 2008, Shakhter and Vostok were disqualified from the Kazakhstan Premier League for playing a fixed match, club coaches and management involved were banned from football for 60 months.[3] On 2 October 2008, the FFK revisited their decisions. Shakhter were deducted nine points, Vostok were immediately expelled from the competition. The result of the game in question has been cancelled and all remaining Vostok games will be counted as won by 3–0 for their opponents.[4]

On 20 August 2013, Shakhter defeated Scottish champions Celtic by 2–0 at home in 2013–14 UEFA Champions League play-off round first leg.[5] However, Celtic won the return leg by 3–0 and Shakhter dropped into the Europa League - the first time a Kazakh club has progressed to the group stage of a European competition.[6] Shakhter were eliminated from the Europa League by finishing fourth in a group containing PAOK, Maccabi Haifa and AZ.

On 9 January 2018, Uladzimir Zhuravel was appointed as Shakhter Karagandy's new manager.[7] Zhuravel resigned as manager on 3 July 2018, with Andrei Finonchenko taking charge in a temporary manner.[8] On 18 July 2018, Nikolay Kostov was confirmed as Shakhter Karagandy's new manager.[9] On 30 December 2019, Vyacheslav Hroznyi was announced as the new manager of Shakhter Karagandy.[10]

Club cultureEdit

Shakhter sacrifice a sheep the day before matches, as a tradition. This has led the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to petition UEFA President Michel Platini for a ban on animal slaughter in European football.[11] Laws regarding animal slaughter have made the custom impossible when playing away in some countries.[12]
