PFC CSKA Moscow (Russian: Профессиональный футбольный клуб ЦСКА Москва or Professional Football Club - Central Sports Club of Army (Moscow)) is the football section of the CSKA sports club of Moscow, Russia.

It won the Soviet championship seven times (1946, 1947, 1948, 1950, 1951, 1970, 1991), the Soviet Cup five times (1945, 1948, 1951, 1955, 1991), the Russian Cup in 2002, 2005, and 2006, won the Russian Premier League champions title in 2003, 2005 and 2006, finishing second in 1998, 2002 and 2004, and the Russian Super Cup in 2004 and 2006.

Recently, the club received a major financial infusion from a sponsorship deal with Sibneft, an oil company owned by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. Abramovich will not take an ownership interest in the club as he is the current owner of English Premiership power Chelsea and UEFA rules allow only one club controlled by any one entity (person or corporation) to participate in European club competition in a given season.

In the season 2006 the club is sponsored by Vneshtorgbank.

CSKA Moscow won the 2005 UEFA Cup by beating Sporting Lisbon 3–1 in the Final on Sporting's home field in Lisbon. It became the first Russian club to win a major European title.


[edit] Nickname

The nickname "Koni" (horses) appeared soon after the club was founded, as the players signed for the team were assigned to cavalry units.
