By Laman Ismayilova
Salnamafilm studio will produce a documentary about Qarabag Football Club.
The four series documentary will feature the club’s archive footage, the history and its activity in Baku, and highlights of matches against world football teams.
The film director Fuad Guliyev and screenwriter Ismayil Safaral are working on the film.
Formed in 1987, Qarabag is an Azerbaijani professional football club, based in Baku, that competes in the Azerbaijan Premier League, the top flight of Azerbaijani football.
The club originates from Agdam, but has not played in its hometown since 1993 due to the First Nagorno-Karabakh War. The club is now based in Baku.
Qarabag was founding members of the Azerbaijan Premier League in 1992. One season later, it won their first league championship, becoming the first non-Baku-based club to win the Premier League title.
Qarabag is one of the two teams in Azerbaijan, along with Neftchi PFK which has participated in all Premier League championships so far.
After beating the Netherlands club Twente in 2014, Qarabag qualified for the 2014-2015 UEFA Europa League group stage for the first time in its history and became the second Azerbaijani team reaching the European competitions group stage.
In 2017, Qarabag became the first Azerbaijani club to qualify for the group stages of the UEFA Champions League after beating Danish club Copenhagen and drew in the Group C alongside Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Roma.
