Season 1966 was due to answer the question whether Rubin, a newcomer of Class A, was able to gain a foothold and to survive a competition with more experienced clubs. The first goal was scored by Alexey Beryuchevsky. Only three players were added a goalkeeper Ilyas Galimov returned from Leningrad, and forwards Murad Zadikahvili from Kutaisi and Nikolay Vorobyov from Yoshkar-Ola came. Club coaches counted on the footballers succeeded in the previous year. After a zero draw in Batumi and a loss from Kuban in Krasnodar the kazanners gained revenge from Spartak in Nalchik for the loss in the final of 1965. First three games were played away. 21 that was the first win in Class A.

Striker David Chaladze tied with Vyacheslav Kamoltsevym for the title of best scorer; both scored 20 goals. Chaladze became the third player in the club's history to scoring four goals in one game, in the match against Krasnoyarsk Metallurg. Overall, the season was a great success, with the club winning 22 of 34games, and only suffering six defeats. In the following year, a number of qualified players with experience from the top division were invited to the club: David Chaladze, Gennady Semin, Michail Sinev, and Andrei Konovalov. The 2001 season did not begin well for Rubin Kazan. Under his leadership, the club finished the season in 8th place. As a consequence, there was another change of coaches, as Antihovic was replaced by Kurban Bekievich Berdiyev from Smolensk Kristall.

Next year of 1967 considerable changes happened in the squad. Skilful Vladimir Savelyev returned home from Krylia Sovetov (Kuibyshev). In the defensive line appeared: Vyacheslav Bulavin who became later famous as a player and a head coach of Zenit (Leningrad), and Gennadiy Klimanov, captain of RSFSR Youth Squad. Rubin had to start forming the middle line from the beginning. The leaders of last years Fomin, Golubev and Novichkov finished to play for the team. A resulting striker Nikolay Penzin appeared in the attack.

Petersburg). Petersburg. In 2008, Rubin won the league championship to qualify for the 200910 UEFA Champions League Group stage, making them the easternmost team to play in the competition. Their championship season began with a league record seven consecutive wins, including victories against defending champions Zenit St. Rubin clinched its first championship in club history and became only the third club from outside Moscow to win the Russian Premier League (after Spartak-Alania Vladikavkaz and Zenit St.

In June a change of a steersman has happened. In the final table Rubin was the 2nd. As a result an overall 2nd place in the Second League and a pass to the First League. Instead of Vladlen Reshitko ex-forward of Iskra Yuri Markov took the post of a senior coach. It has even strengthened: experienced Alexey Semenov and Vladimir Sergeev came from Dnepropetrovsk, from Baku Renat Kamaletdinov has returned. The start turned out to be sick, Rubin was 11th after the first half. In a stubborn struggle kazanners could stand up for this position in a semi-final pellet in Frunze and in a final in Sochi. Before the season of 1974 Rubin has practically lost no players of a senior squad.

The reason for this was that from next season the best in the championship-93 teams of three zones were to form a single first league (the current first division), in which representatives from the central zone were "booked" 7 vacancies. In 1993, "Rubin" got a task to take in the tournament of central zone of the first league place no lower than seventh.

We can only guess how things would have developed for "Rubin" in the next 1987, if Gavrilov stays in the team. His scoring quality Gavrilov showed in the season-1986, when with 27 balls he became the best scorer of the second league. But he decided to try his strength in the first league and moved to the Voronezh "Fakel", and when in autumn after the injury he returned to Kazan, the fans saw on the field only a pale shadow of a formidable striker. The game in attack was fixed in season 1985, when to the team came Vladimir Gavrilov, best scorer of "Rubin" in its history.

The quoted sum was 7million. In September 2009, Rubin were the unknowing participants in a bizarre transfer saga involving four Levski Sofia players (Zhivko Milanov, Youssef Rabeh, Darko Tasevski and Z Soares). It turned out that Levski had fallen victims to fraudsters. The Bulgarian champions received a fax, supposedly from the Kazan team, offering to buy the footballers. Official Rubin representatives denied any knowledge of the whole affair, maintaining that they knew nothing about the players in question. On 20 September 2009, the four players, accompanied by a Levski representative, travelled to Moscow to undergo a medical examination, but the deal fell through, as the phony Rubin representative offered lower salaries than those originally agreed.

In the final table in 1981, Rubin was in 5th place. Credibility, which was enough for the next 7years (with a break in 198384), get Vladimir Mikhailov, in past well-known football player of Moscow Torpedo. The next attempt to find a suitable mentor for the team finally succeeded in 1981. Mikhailov invited to Rubin striker Vadim Popov, who immediately set to work 20 goals in his debut season. At the gate of Gorky's "Volga" Vadim scored 4 goals the second "poker", made by a player in our team (first in 1958, distinguished Gennady Berezin).
