PFC CSKA Moscow is a Russian football based in the city of Moscow. They currently feature in the Russian Premier League and are one of the biggest and most successful clubs in Russian football.

CSKA Moscow play their home matches at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The stadium is one of the best in Eastern Europe and can host a crowd of 84,745.

PFC CSKA Moscow were formed in 1911 as a football section of the CSKA sports club of Moscow. They were originally named as Amateur Society of Skiing Sports but over the names underwent several name changes and eventually embraced their current name.

CSKA Moscow have always been a major force in the erstwhile Soviet football period as well as in the modern Russian period. Recently they were financially boosted when an oil company owned by the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, Signeft, made a sponsorship deal with the club.

CSKA Mowcow won the UEFA Cup in 2005 in astounding fashion by defeating Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon in Lisbon to become the first Russian club ever to win a major European title. That year, they also achieved the mythical treble and are still the only Russian club to have completed the treble in history.

Originally CSKA Moscow were nicknames Stables because their first training facilities were located at a building that once used to be a stable for Prince Yusupov. Their nickname was then altered to Horses and now they are known as the Army Men.

Some of the achievements of the club include:-7 USSR Championships-3 Russian Premier League titles-4 Russian Cup-1 UEFA Cup
