Since 2009 Quzanlı has been cited as the rather unlikely home to one of Azerbaijan's top football clubs, FK Qarabağ.[3] The team had been based in Baku from 1993 ever since being forced to leave Ağdam where they were originally based. The total depopulation and continued occupation of that city means that Quzanlı, being in the unoccupied sector of Ağdam Rayon, is about as near as they could get to a full "return home".
