Know the opposition
Fotbal Club Sheriff, commonly known as Sheriff Tiraspol or simply Sheriff and nicknamed The Wasps, is a Moldovan professional football club based in Tiraspol, a city located in the unrecognised breakaway state of Transnistria. In summer 1996, the football team Tiras made its debut when it was chosen for participating in Division B of the National Championship of Moldova. Before the second leg, Sheriff Company became the general sponsor of the team. On 4 April 1997, the sports club of the same name was established and headed by Company President Victor Gushan. The team was entrusted with the task to enter the National Division of the Championship of Moldova.
Most experts were of the opinion that Sheriff would become the main opponent to the multiple Champion of Moldova – Zimbru from Chisinau. But Sheriff went a step further, and have since established a strict monopoly by amassing 20 championship titles, 11 Cups and 7 Super Cups – all competition records. On the European stage, Sheriff has reached the group stage of the UEFA Europa League on five occasions and became the first ever Moldovan side to reach the group stages of the 2021–22 UEFA Champions League, where they would go on to beat eventual champions Real Madrid. Sheriff plays its home games at the Sheriff Stadium, to which the club moved in 2002.
