Early years

  • First Azerbaijani football clubs started to function in 1905. Generally they represented the main oil companies of Baku.
  • The Azerbaijan national football team held her first friendly matches against Georgia and Armenia in 1927 for the Trans-Caucasian Championship in Georgia.[1]
  • During the Soviet Era the team did not play any international matches

'60s to '90s

1960s considered Golden Age for Azerbaijani football as it produced great players like Anatoliy Banishevskiy, Alakbar Mammadov and football referee Tofik Bakhramov, most famous for being a linesman who helped to award a goal for England in the 1966 World Cup Final between England and West Germany.

1990s–present day

After Azerbaijan gained its independence in 1991, AFFA — Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan — was created. In 1992, renowned Azerbaijani footballer Alekper Mamedov became the first head coach of the Azeribaijani national football team, compiling a 3–1 record as coach that includes the first ever national team victory, over Georgia on May 25, 1993.[3][4] In 1994, the national team was accepted into FIFA and UEFA.

Because of security issues, the team played all of its home Euro 96 qualifers in Trabzon, Turkey.[5]

In February 2004, Carlos Alberto Torres, captain of the Brazil team that won the 1970 FIFA World Cup was appointed its national coach. Despite a poor start, a 0–6 defeat to Israel on February 18, Azerbaijan won their first ever away match, 3–2 against Kazakhstan on April 28. In June 2005, following a 3–0 defeat by Poland, Torres stood down from the position, to be replaced by former Neftchi coach Vagif Sadygov, his third spell as coach of Azerbaijan. Shakhin Diniyev took over as manager in November 2005. He resigned on 31 October 2007, and Gjoko Hadzievski was named as care-taking coach of Azerbaijan.[6]

World Cup 2010

In April 2008 famous German football player and coach Berti Vogts was appointed as a manager of Azerbaijan on a two-year contract.[7]

Azerbaijan had a mixed qualifying campaign, finishing with 5 points, just missing out on a last place to Liechtenstein with 2 points.

Euro 2012

In November 2009, AFFA extended Berti Vogts contract to further 2 years, which going to make Vogts as the first manager to manage Azerbaijani national team in two qualification cycles.[8][9]

Stadium

Most of Azerbaijan's home matches are played at the Tofik Bakhramov Stadium in the capital Baku. It has been Azerbaijan's principal home stadium ever since country's independence from Soviet Union.

Today, some qualifying matches are hosted at the Lankaran City Stadium in Lankaran after it met UEFA stadium criteria.[10][11]

A new Baku Olympic Stadium is under construction in Baku with an expected capacity of 65,000 seats.[12][13] Following 2012, this stadium will be used as the venue for most key matches of the Azerbaijani national team.
