FC Avangard Kursk is an association football club based in Kursk, Russia, currently playing in the third tier of Russian football. The team's colors are: home all blue, and away all white.

History

The club has been known under the following names:

Spartak made an appearance in the Soviet league in 1946. Since 1957 Kursk was continuously represented in the league by Trudovye Rezervy, Trud, and Avangard. The club played in Class B and in the Second League. The best achievement was the second position in the zone in 1962 and 1964.

Avangard entered the Russian Second League in 1992 and was moved to the Third League in 1994, after the number of clubs in the Second League was significantly reduced. In 1995, they won promotion to the Second League, and in 2004 Avangard finished second in their Second Division zone, obtaining promotion to the First Division. Avangard played 3 seasons in First Division and relegated to Second Division in 2007 as 18th. Avangard returned to second level in 2009 as Center Group champion. But, Avangard finished in the last place and was relegated to third level in 2010. The club won its PFL zone and was promoted back to the second-tier Russian Football National League at the end of the 2016–17 season.

In the 2017–18 season, the team has reached the final of the Russian Cup, defeating two Premier League clubs (CSKA and Amkar) during the competition. They lost the final 1–2 to FC Tosno on a late goal by Reziuan Mirzov.

In February 2019, Avangard competed in the FNL Cup. They got into finals, where they had to play against FC Rotor Volgograd. The match took place on February 20. After the full-time, the score was 1:1, with Mikhail Zemskov scoring the opening goal for Avangard on 80' minute and a quick response by Anzor Sanaya on 86' minute of the match. The match has ultimately ended in a penalty shoot-out, where Avangard was able to grab a 3-4 victory.

On 17 May 2020, the club announced that they will be voluntarily relegated to the third-tier PFL for the 2020–21 season due to lack of necessary financing.[1]
