Akhmat Grozny 2020-21 Away Jersey/Shirt
This is a Macron FC Akhmat Grozny away jersey as worn by the club throughout the 2020-21 period.
Akhmat Grozny compete in the Russian Premier League and are based in Grozny, the capital city of the Chechen Republic. The Chechen Republic is one of the 24 republics of Russia, which are administrative divisions originally created to represent areas of non-Russian ethnicity, with the mostly Muslim Chechen ethnic group comprising 95% of the roughly 1.5 million population. The region has seen significant periods of conflict since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, with the Russia-backed Akhmat Kadyrov (of which Akhmat Grozny is now named after) controlling the Republic until his assassination in 2004, with his son Ramzan now in power. Akhmat Grozny was founded in 1946 and has mostly been named Terek Grozny until adopting the Akhmat name in 2017. The team had largely played in the lower leagues for most of its history, but has been in the top tier since 2008, with their best league season in 2016-17 culminating in a 5th place finish. The most memorable period in the history of the club was 2004, where they won the Russian First League (2nd tier) title and most significantly the 2003-04 Russian Cup title with a shock 1-0 victory in the final against Krylia Sovetov, then one of Russia’s strongest clubs.
