FC Olimp-Dolgoprudny (Russian: ФК «Олимп-Долгопрудный») is a professional association football club from Dolgoprudny, Russia. It will make its debut in the second-highest Russian Football National League in the 2021–22 season. It began competing in the third-tier Russian Professional Football League in the 2012–13 season.
On 25 May 2020, FSC Dolgoprudny announced that it will merge into FC Olimp Khimki, with the new club called FC Olimp-Dolgoprudny. On 16 June 2020, the new club passed licensing for the Russian Football National League and applied for admission to the league, along with two other candidates. On 24 July 2020, Russian Football Union chose Alania Vladikavkaz to be promoted instead.
Following promotion, the main squad moved their base to Khimki and completely revamped the squad and coaching staff. A separate club, technically a farm-club of Olimp, was organized in the third tier as FC Olimp-Dolgoprudny-2. Several players who secured promotion in the previous season moved to that new club.
As of 16 July 2021, according to the FNL website.
