FC Metallurg Lipetsk (Russian: Футбольный клуб «Металлург» Липецк) is an association football club in Lipetsk, Russia, formed in 1957. Their home, Metallurg Stadium, is located on Pervomayskaya Street, 59, in Lipetsk.


Their best result came in 1997 when they came 2nd in the Russian First Division.[1]

In September 2006 the coach Stanislav Bernikov of the Russian third division rushed a goon squad after a defeat on 25 September 2006 on his players, the Rowdys targeted the team with ebonite bullets.[2] Three players suffered with injuries and went to a hospital; the coach Bernikov was then summarily dismissed.[3]

In 2008, they won the Russian Second Division in the Center Zone and were promoted for 2009 Russian First Division but relegated again to third level after finishing First Division as 19th.

On 10 June 2021, they secured first place in their PFL group and promotion to the second-tier Russian Football National League for the 2021–22 season, for the first time since 2009.[4]
