FC Rubin Kazan (Russian: Футбольный клуб Рубин Казань, Futbolny klub Rubin Kazan; Tatar: Рубин Казан футбол клубы, English: "a ruby") is a Russian association football club based in the city of Kazan (Republic of Tatarstan). Rubin won the Russian Premier League championship in 2008 and 2009.

History

Rubin was previously called "Iskra" from 1958 to 1964, and then "Rubin-TAN" from 1992 to 1993.

Having never played in the Soviet Top League, the football club joined the Russian First Division in 1992 and dropped to the Russian Second Division in 1994. The mayor of Kazan at the time, Kamil Iskhakov, purchased the team in 1996. As a result, Rubin won the Second Division in 1997 and was promoted back to the First Division the following season. The next four seasons, the team consistently finished above eighth place. Finally winning the title in 2002, Rubin was promoted to the Russian Premier League for the first time in 2003. Rubin finished third in its debut season to qualify for the UEFA Cup. The team faced a temporary setback in the 2004 campaign finishing in tenth place, but 2005 saw them finish fourth, again qualifying for the team for the UEFA Cup.

2003 was met with significant changes in the team associated with the arrival of a large number of foreign players, including MacBeth Sibaya, Pape Kebe, Andrés Scotti, Tomáš Čížek, and Jiří Novotný.

The debut season began with defeat against CSKA Moscow (0:4). This was followed by the team's first victory in a hard game against Torpedo-Metallurg (1:0). Victories at home over FC Torpedo Moscow (3:1) and FC Spartak Moscow (1:0) pulled Rubin up to a mid-table position. This was followed by 10 matches without defeat, which lifted Kazan to second place. Fortune was quickly turned when serious injury to goalkeeper Sergei Kozko led to a losing streak. After a home defeat to FC Zenit, Rubin dropped to fifth place. Winning the last 3 games of the season — against Krylia Sovetov, Torpedo-Metallurg and reigning champions CSKA Moscow — Rubin Kazan unexpectedly snatched third place.

In 2004 Rubin began on an optimistic note. Almost nobody left the team, and incoming transfers looked promising. From SK Slavia Prague came Adam Petrouš and midfielder Richard Dostálek. In addition, Alejandro Domínguez joined from River Plate. Rubin signed experienced goalkeeper Valeri Chizhov from FC Saturn Ramenskoye and Marat Makhmutov from FC Torpedo Moscow.

The first victory in the 2005 season came only in the 8-th round over Spartak (2:0). It allowed Rubin to leave the last place. Then Kazan managed to climb in the standings, but 7 games without a win once again led Rubin in the danger zone, out of which the team managed to climp only at a finish of the season. Tenth place, of course, was seen as a failure after the excellent season-2003. The UEFA Cup ended in the third round, after an 2:0 away victory Rubin lost their home match 0:3.

Year 2006, Rubin met with the new president. In the autumn of 2005, the head of the club became Alexander P. Gusev, who changed Kamil Iskhakov. The team got a task in the championship of Russia to take place which will again allow it to take part in European cup competitions. In August Rubin the second time in its history played in UEFA Cup. In the second qualifying round Kazan easily passed Belarusian BATE (3:0 at home and 2:0 away). The next stage Kazan lost to Parma from Italy (both matches 0:1). Russian Championship Rubin finished on fifth position, which allowed it to play next season in Intertoto Cup.

In the season-2007, again there was a major refurbishment of the team. Rubin filled up a whole group of players, but only some of them remained in the team next season, 2008. All because of the failure of performance of the team: 10-th position in the championship of Russia and the defeat in UEFA Intertoto Cup from old rivals Rapid. The season was marred by the death of defender Lenar Gilmullin. Lenar was the only pupil of Rubin, participating at the time for the first team.

In 2008, Rubin won the league championship to qualify for the 2009–10 UEFA Champions League Group stage, making them the easternmost team to play in the competition. Their championship season began with a league record seven consecutive wins, including victories against defending champions Zenit Saint Petersburg. Rubin clinched its first championship in club history and became only the third club from outside Moscow to win the Russian Premier League (after Spartak-Alania Vladikavkaz and Zenit St Petersburg).

On 20 October 2009, Rubin recorded a shock win over Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League at Camp Nou. This was followed by a 0–0 draw at home two weeks later. On 21 November 2009, Rubin secured a 0–0 draw against Zenit St Petersburg to win the Russian Premier League championship for the second season in a row.

In 2010 Rubin won the CIS Cup, becoming the first Russian team since 2005 to win that title. In the final Rubin had beaten FC Aktobe 5-2.

The first game of the season, Rubin held under the League of Europe. Rival was the Dutch Twente. The final score was 0:2 in favor of the Dutch. In the next match in Enschede, was recorded by 2:2. As part of Rubin's goals noted Christian Noboa and Cristian Ansaldi

The first match of the championship Rubin held in Krasnodar vs. Kuban and won 2:0. Goals were scored by Alan Kasaev and Christian Noboa. The second round was held in Kazan Terek Grozny against. By the score 2:0 in favor of Ruby. Goals: Gökdeniz Karadeniz and Christian Noboa. In the third round in Makhachkala Rubin lost to local Anji. In the fourth round of a draw in a match against Spartak Nalchik. In the fifth round - a major defeat by CSKA 2:0. The sixth round of Rubin played against Amkar Perm, by the score of 1:1. The only goal scored by Alexander Ryazantsev. A Perm inhabitants helped Captain Rubin Roman Sharonov, cut the ball into his own net. In the seventh round of Rubin in Samara playing against Krylya Sovetov, by the score 2:2. In the eighth round, took home the Premier League newcomers FC Krasnodar, by the score of 2:1 in favor of Kazan: two goals for Rubin scored Gökdeniz Karadeniz, while Roman Sharonov again scored an own goal.

In September 2009, Rubin were the unknowing participants in a bizarre transfer saga involving four Levski Sofia players (Zhivko Milanov, Youssef Rabeh, Darko Tasevski and Zé Soares). The Bulgarian champions received a fax, supposedly from the Kazan team, offering to buy the footballers. The quoted sum was €7 million. On 20 September 2009, the four players, accompanied by a Levski representative, travelled to Moscow to undergo a medical examination, but the deal fell through, as the phony Rubin representative offered lower salaries than those originally agreed. Official Rubin representatives denied any knowledge of the whole affair, maintaining that they knew nothing about the players in question. It turned out that Levski had fallen victims to fraudsters. It is thought that the incident was masterminded to defraud bookmakers by placing large bets against Levski in their derby match against city rivals CSKA Sofia.
