The Grigory Fedootov Club is a symbolic club that unites Soviet and Russian football players who have scored 100 or more goals in their careers. The club also includes foreign players who have scored 100 goals for Russian clubs. Created on the initiative of the famous football statistician Konstantin Yesenin and the weekly "Football" in November 1967. The club is named after the footballer, Grigory Fedotov, who was the first to overcome the milestone of 100 goals scored in the championship, cup and national team of the USSR.


The goals counting for Grigory Fedotov's club include the goals of Russian and Soviet football players scored in the championships (top league, top division, premier league), cups (starting from the stage where teams of the elite division participate) of the USSR and Russia ( including the matches of these tournaments, later recognized as invalid), the first teams of the USSR, the CIS and Russia, European cups, as well as national championships and cups of other countries and sports and athletics of the peoples of the USSR, which are not inferior in strength to the level of domestic football. For foreign players, only goals scored by them for Russian clubs count towards the club.

As of April 25, 2019, Eduard Markarov, since 1973, has dropped from 9th place to only 13th!


At present, the Football weekly has adopted the following procedure for counting goals in the Grigory Fedotov Club:

  1. Championship - balls scored in the championships of the USSR and Russia, in the main league of the country at that time, including in matches with teams that later withdrew or were withdrawn from the championship, are taken into account.

  2. Cup - goals scored in the games for the Cup and Super Cup of the USSR and Russia from the stage when the teams of the major league enter the fight.

  3. Eurocups - goals scored in the Cup and Champions League, UEFA Cup, Cup Winners' Cup, Super Cup, Intertoto Cup in matches for both Soviet and Russian, and for foreign clubs.

  4. National team - goals scored in the national team and in official matches of the Olympic teams of the USSR and Russia are taken into account.

  5. Spartakiads - balls scored at the Spartakiads of the peoples of the USSR (1956 and 1979).

  6. Foreign clubs - goals scored in the championships and cups of the following foreign countries are taken into account: group A (Italy, Spain, Germany, England, France, Brazil, Argentina), group B (Holland, Portugal, Turkey, Greece, Scotland (excluded) in No. 36, 2012), Ukraine (starting from the 2007/2008 season), Belgium, Czech Republic, Sweden, Austria, Denmark, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Mexico).


The list of football players who scored 100 or more goals in the games of the USSR football championships and for the USSR national team and united in the Grigory Fedotov Club first appeared in the Football-Hockey weekly in 1967 in No. 48 thanks to the initiative of Konstantin Yesenin.

Since the beginning of 1970, a record of goals scored in canceled matches of the USSR championship, in matches of European cups and in Olympic tournaments began to be kept. Thanks to this, Boris Paichadze and Anatoly Ilyin were included in the club.

Also in 1970, a decision was made to take into account the goals scored in matches for the USSR Cup in football. But at the same time, a number of restrictions were set: matches were to be held between teams of the major leagues, all results were taken into account only from the 1/4 finals (in 1976, it was proposed to keep records from the games of the 1/8 finals). In 1979, it was clarified: to count all the goals scored against the teams of the major leagues, as well as the participants in the 1/8 finals of the previous and current Cup.

In August 1996, Oleg Veretennikov fulfilled the standard of 100 balls.

In the period from 1996 to 2003, the list of players included in the club was never published, which gave other sports publications a reason to talk about his “death” (moreover, this was stated by Pavel Alyoshin, who supervised the publication of the club’s list in Football, who went over to these years in Sport-Express and became one of the founders of the Club 100 [1]). The reason for the new publication of the list was the achievement of the standard of 100 goals by Andrey Tikhonov in March 2003.
