HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 1975 as Trud Krasnoyarsk (Russian: Труд, "labour"), but in 1978 was renamed Sibtyazhmash Krasnoyarsk (Russian: Сибтяжмаш). It took its current name on 12 April 2000. STM is an abbreviation for Sibtyazhmash ("Siberian Heavy Machinery", a local firm), while the Enisei is the river that flows through Krasnoyarsk. The club competed in the European Rugby Challenge Cup since 2015–16 season. Enisei-STM is a two-time holder of the European Rugby Continental Shield. They are the first club outside of England, France, Ireland and Wales, which has won any European competition. Also Enisei-STM is the only owner of the European trophy, which is geographically based in Asia.

Siberian derbyEdit

Krasny Yar and Enisei-STM are based on the left and right banks of the Yenisei River. The first city derby took place on 1990, when the Enisei-STM rose from the lower leagues to the Soviet Championship. Krasny Yar played at the highest level since 1977. In the 1990s, the derby passed with the advantage of Krasny Yar. But since the 00's, Enisei-STM was able to reverse the course of history. The Siberian derby took place in Krasnoyarsk, Abakan, Shushenskoye, Chita, Moscow, Simferopol, Krasnodar and Edinburgh. At the moment (November 3, 2019), 138 games were played in the Russian Championship, the Russian Cup, the Russian Supercup and the European Rugby Continental Shield. Enisei-STM won 75 times, Krasny Yar won 59 times, 4 matches ended in a draw.
