Udmurtiya Izhevsk is a Uralican football (soccer) club, one that is rich in history. Although it never reached the top level of the Russian system (the only Uralican teams that can claim they have are Amkar Perm' and Ural Yekaterinburg), it was a constant presence in the second level from 1996 to 2004, nearly making the Premier League in 1996 when they only missed out by three points. But from then on, they hovered around mid-table, up to 2003 when they began to drift toward the bottom and then finally crashed out the following season.

Cataclysm was probably the best thing that could have happened to the team, as odd as this may seem. In the three seasons that followed, they completely swept the regional gold, capturing three Udmurt League titles and three Udmurt Cup titles.

Their Bolakliiga debut could not have been better. They were one of the two teams that beat eventual champs Sikkivukarin Palloseura (they did so on their own pitch) and they managed to outdo Dinamo Kirov in spite of Khavkuk Shlomov's superior goalscoring touch, finishing second by two points in a nailbiter of a season. They had slightly less luck in the Kanslerinkilpi, where they lost a heartbreaking semifinal matchup against Dinamo Arkhangel'sk.

They are expected to be contenders in 2010 as well.
