Fotbal Club Sheriff, commonly known as Sheriff Tiraspol or simply Sheriff, is a football club based in Tiraspol, the capital of the unrecognized state of Transnistria. Founded in 1996 as Tiras Tiraspol, it quickly established itself within Moldovan football.
In 1997, the team was rebranded as Sheriff, taking the name of its main sponsor, a company which operates in various industries. "The Wasps" recorded their debut in the first league in the 1998–99 season, when they also won their first trophy, the Moldovan Cup. They have since amassed 18 championship titles, 10 Cups and 8 Super Cups–all competition records. On the European stage, Sheriff has reached the group stage of the UEFA Europa League on four occasions.
The team plays its home games in yellow and black kits at the Sheriff Stadium, on which it moved in 2002 and has a capacity of 12,746.
