History

In February 2013 the owner of the FC Krasnodar, Sergey Galitsky announced its intention to create a farm club in the summer, and declare it in the Russian Professional Football League. On May 27, 2013 Galitsky confirmed that Krasnodar-2 was officially declared in the second league south zone. On July 12, 2013 Krasnodar-2 played his first official match, losing home to Chernomorets Novorossiysk by 3 to 1.

Before the 2018–19 season, FC Amkar Perm had their Russian Premier League license recalled due to debts. As a consequence, FC Anzhi Makhachkala was returned to the Premier League to take Amkar's spot, after the 2018–19 second-tier Russian Football National League calendar was already set. FC Krasnodar-2 received an emergency invitation for a promotion into the FNL and was officially admitted into the league on 26 June 2018 to take Anzhi's spot.
