Nevertheless, “The Riders” would rather celebrate their triumphs in the actual home of Agdam. But more than 25 years ago, the club had to emigrate to the 250 kilometers away capital.
The reason for this is the conflict in the border region of Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan. An occasion why, for example, a few weeks ago Gunners star Henrikh Mkhitaryan had to skip the European League final in Azerbaijan due to security concerns. The upswing of Qarabag is closely linked to the financial start of the state-owned food company Azersun. Thanks to their money Agdam celebrates national and international successes. Almost as important for the club is coach Gurban Gurbanov. The 47-year-old has now been coaching for eleven years and was instrumental in each title win.
