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, Rubin were promoted to the Russian Premier League in 2003, finishing third in their debut season to qualify for the UEFA Cup. Their 2004 campaign was less successful as they came 10th, but 2005 saw them finish 4th, again qualifying for the UEFA Cup.

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[2] 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[3]. This was followed by a 0–0 draw at home two weeks later[4]. 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.[5]

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.

Transfer fraud incident

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 Ze Soares). The Bulgarian champions allegedly received a fax, supposedly from the Kazan team, offering to buy the footballers. The quoted sum was 7000. On 20 September 2009, the four players, accompanied by a Levski representative, travelled to Moscow to undergo a medical examination, but the deal allegedly 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 game against CSKA Sofia.[6][7][8]
