Club history

Torpedo Moscow Football Club (based on Proletarskaya Kuznitsa teams) was formed in 1930 by the AMO automotive plant (soon to be Stalin Automotive Plant - ZIS and later Likhachev Automotive Plant - ZIL).

They played in the Moscow League until 1936 when they became one of the founder members of the Soviet 'B' League and changed their name to Torpedo Moscow. In 1938 they were promoted to the 'A' League.

Torpedo have won the National League Championship on three occasions, and have lifted the National Cup seven times. In 1957 Torpedo Moscow, as well as other Soviet Union sport clubs named "Torpedo", became a part of the republican Voluntary Sports Societies of the USSR Trud of the Russian SFSR.
Nicknamed the Black-Whites, Torpedo hasn't been a major force in Russian football since the days of Eduard Streltsov, the brilliant striker of the 1950s and 1960s, known as "the Russian Pele". Past glories for Torpedo include 3 USSR titles (1960, 1965, and autumn 1976), 6 USSR Cups (1949, 1952, 1960, 1968, 1972, 1986), 1 Russian Cup (football) (1993), and 3 appearances in the quarterfinals of European/UEFA Cup competition, and one Ciutat de Lleida Trophy in 1991.
The club used to belong to the Zavod Imeni Likhocheva automobile plant until a fallout in the mid-1990s that resulted in Torpedo leaving their Torpedo Stadium (Moscow) and moving across town to Luzhniki, as they became property of the Luzhniki corporation and its name was changed to Torpedo-Luzhniki between (1996–1997) before it was renamed as Torpedo Moscow.

After selling Torpedo Moscow in 1996, ZIL created a new team FC Torpedo-ZIL Moscow, which made a debut in the Third Division and reached the Russian Premier League in 2000. However, ZIL sold the team to MMC Norilsk Nickel in 2003 and it was relaunched as FC Moscow. Eventually this team was dissolved after spending 2010 season in Amateur Football League when their owner and main sponsor, MMC Norilsk Nickel withdrew funding.

After selling Torpedo-ZIL (1997) in 2003, ZIL created another team FC Torpedo-ZIL Moscow (2003), which also started in the Third Division, yet this team was eventually disbanded in 2011 after its efforts to seek promotion to the Russian First Division did not succeed.

Under SC Luzhniki ownership (1996–2009), Torpedo Moscow relegated to the Russian First Division in 2006 and after 2 seasons it further relegated to the Russian Second Division. In early 2009, Luzhniki sold the team back to ZiL.
It was speculated that ZIL would merge Torpedo Moscow & Torpedo-ZIL (2003). However, this did not happen and rather Torpedo Moscow spent 2009 in the Amateur Football League and they achieved 2 consecutive promotions to gain a spot in the Russian First Division from 2011.
