Soviet championship

In 1957 Shakhtar reached the finals in the regional championship of the Kazakh SSR . Before that, the team prevailed in one of three groups of six with nine wins and one loss, and in the final round the club took third place. The squad at the time included: Vyachelsaw Tschussow, Kobbas Ibrajew, Boris Yudin, Boris Seliwanow, Viktor Seliwanow, Dmitri Prokhorov, Pawel Kazakow, Anatoli Tschernow, Leonid Abgolz, Nikolai Khrustalev (captain), Gennady Novikov, Senonas J Merkjawitschus, and Senonas Jerkjawitschus Siegfried Mezenatow, Alexander Konowalow and Evgeni Baschirow. The team's coach was Vasily Gilew.

In 1958 the club was included in the 5th zone of class B ( 2nd league within the USSR ). In 1962, the team won one of the zone championships in the second division and prevailed in two qualifying games for promotion to class A (1st division within the USSR) in Odessa, Ukraine, against Lokomotive Gomel with 1-0 in the aggregate. The protector of the golden gate was Wiktor Abgolz. Through this success, Shakhtar should replace the Kairat Alma-Ata as a representative of the Kazakh SSR in the Soviet football supreme house, but remained in the second division due to the decision of the Kazakh leadership, which was made in favor of the capital club. After this success, the home stadium was expanded to a capacity of 28,000 spectators. In 1967 Shakhtar was champion in one of the three zones of the second group of class A (2nd division), but lost the promotion game in the Soviet elite class in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, against Dinamo Kirowabad with 0: 1. After eleven years of membership in the second division, the club was relegated from the second division in 1973, and in 1982 and 1983 the team failed as zone champions of the third-highest division in the qualifying games to return to the second division.

A total of 1241 games were played in the Soviet championship from 1958 to 1991, including 567 wins, 295 draws and 379 defeats with a goal difference of 1718: 1313. Valery Lukjantschuk played most of the games with 365 appearances. The top scorer was Nikolai Igamberdyjew with 182 goals. With eleven seasons in the second highest league in the Soviet Union, Shakhtar is the second best team in Kazakhstan after Kairat Alma-Ata .

Kazakh championship

Shakhtar has played in the highest Kazakh league since 1992 and was one of the founding members of the Kazakh Supreme League after Kazakhstan's independence . In its first season in the new league, the club reached seventh place. Shakhtar is one of only two teams, besides Irtysh Pavlodar , that took part in all events of the Kazakh elite class. In the 1995 season, the team led the table for a long time, but had to be satisfied with the bronze medals at the end of the season. This hitherto best placement was achieved by Schachtjor in 2007 and 2009. In the 2001 season, Schachtjor finished the first half of the season as bottom of the table, was able to increase his performance in the second half of the season and secure the twelfth place in the table at the end of the season, which saved from relegation Representing team from Karaganda. The club were deducted nine points in the 2008 season due to a postponed game against Vostok Öskemen . The enemy was demoted to the bottom of the table, but could nevertheless in 2009 to compete in the Premjer League. In 2010 , the team qualified in the preliminary round for the championship round, in which, however, after a disappointing performance with four draws and six defeats in no single win, only sixth place could be achieved.

In 2009 Shakhtar was in the final of the Kazakh Cup. In the capital city of Astana Arena , however, FK Atyrau proved to be the stronger team after a 1-0 draw. In 2010 the final of the Kazakh Cup was lost again. As in the previous year, the team suffered a 1-0 defeat, this time against Lokomotive Astana .

In the 2011 season, the long-awaited championship title was won for the first time with the newly signed head coach Viktor Kumykow . Under the direction of the football teacher from Russia, the team was able to prevail at the end of the season with a lead of four points over runner-up Schetissu Taldyqorghan . The team from Taldyqorghan, who had been leading the table until then, was only defeated 2-0 in a direct duel away from home on the penultimate matchday and was thus able to take the lead. On the final day of the match, the championship title was secured by a 2-0 home win against Lokomotiv Astana .

The 2011 championship team

In the following season of 2012, Shakhtar Qaraghandy successfully defended the Kazakh championship title when Kaisar Qysylorda's team was clearly defeated 3-0 in the home stadium on the penultimate match day of the Premjer League , thus increasing the point advantage over the pursuers beyond the reach. In addition, the team from Karaganda made it to the semi-finals of the national cup 2012, where they had to admit defeat to FK Astana .

After two unsuccessful finals, the first cup win was celebrated on November 10, 2013, when in the final of FK Taras in the metropolitan Astana Arena was beaten 1-0 by Sergei Chischnichenko .

Logo until 2013

With fourth place in the Kazakh league in 2005 , the team was allowed to participate in the UEFA Intertoto Cup 2006 and failed in the first round against the Belarusian representative MTZ-RIPA Minsk after a home defeat 1: 5 and a subsequent away win 3: 1. Third place in 2007 enabled the club to participate in a European cup for the second time. In the first qualifying round for the 2008/09 UEFA Cup , the club faced Hungarian club Debrecen VSC and were eliminated after 1-1 and 0-1 from the competition. After Schakhtar again finished third in the Kazakh league in 2009, the club was allowed to participate in the first qualifying round for the newly created 2010/11 UEFA Europa League and failed in its third attempt after two defeats at the first hurdle Ruch Chorzów .

After Lokomotive Astana , the Kazakh Cup winner in 2010, was denied participation in the qualifying round for the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League by UEFA for licensing reasons, Shakhtar Karagandy was nominated as a cup finalist for the competition. The club was able to prevail in the first round against the Slovenian third-placed FC Luka Koper and failed in the second qualifying round at the Irish club St Patrick's Athletic .

After the qualifying round was lost against the Czech representative Slovan Liberec in the following year , it was possible to reach the play-off round of the Champions League for the first time for a Kazakh club in 2013 by winning against BATE Baryssau and Skënderbeu Korça . The team won the play-off first leg in Kazakhstan 2-0 against the favorite Scots from Celtic Glasgow . As a sheep was slaughtered as part of a ritual before this game, UEFA threatened the club with sanctions if the match persisted. In the second leg, Schakhtar had to admit defeat 3-0 with a decisive goal in stoppage time. As a result, the first participation in the group stage of the Champions League was missed, but the first qualification for the group stage of the UEFA Europa League succeeded . After two draws against AZ Alkmaar and Maccabi Haifa with four defeats, the fourth and last place in the group was occupied, as a result of which Shakhtar Qaraghandy had to be eliminated from the further competition. Nevertheless, this performance represents the club's greatest success so far on an international level.
