HistoryEdit

The club was established in 2009 under the name of Neftchi-ISM as Neftchi Baku's reserve team, and played in Azerbaijan First Division. However, reserve teams cannot play in the same division as their senior team and therefore the club was ineligible for promotion to the Azerbaijan Premier League. The club became independent of Neftchi in 2011 and was renamed Qaradağ Lökbatan FK, which would allow them to participate in Premier League if they secured promotion from the First Division.[2]

On 10 April 2012, the club finished top in the First Division, which would normally result in promotion to Azerbaijan Premier League.[3] However, after a decision of the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan about licensing, club was not promoted.[4][5]

StadiumEdit

Lökbatan Olympic Sport Complex Stadium is a football stadium is a multi-use stadium in Lökbatan settlement of Baku, Azerbaijan. It is currently used as the club's home stadium and holds 2,500 people.
