FC Dinamo Tbilisi (Georgian: დინამო თბილისი) is a Georgian professional football team, based in the capital Tbilisi.
In the early years in Georgia, no official championship existed, so the teams played friendly games against each other. The first match was played with Azerbaijan team Dinamo Baku on 26 January 1926, with the more experienced Azerbaijan squad winning 1–0. The Dinamo team starred: D.Tsomaia, A.Pochkhua, M.Blackman, I.Foidorov, N.Anakin, A.Gonel, A.Pivovarov, O.Goldobin, A.Galperin, S.Maslenikov, V.Tsomaia.
The record attendance was repeated in 1995 for Georgia vs Germany. The football clubs Spartak Moscow and Dynamo Kyiv often played their autumn international matches on this stadium.
The first major success came in 1964 Soviet Top League when Dinamo won the Soviet Top League, with the team unbeaten in the last 15 matches. At the end, Dinamo was tied with Torpedo Moscow so the teams played an additional match in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, which Dinamo won 4–1. Georgian supporters celebrated the victory by naming their team "Golden Guys".
FC Dinamo Tbilisi continued to win Georgian championships and Georgian cup, but had no success in European club tournaments.
The line-up of winning team in 1964 was: Sergo Kotrikadze, Giorgi Sichinava, Guram Petriashvili, Jemal Zeinklishvili, Guram Tskhovrebov, Vladimer Rekhviashvili, Shota Iamanidze, Slava Metreveli, Vladimir Barkaya, Mikheil Meskhi, Ilia Datunashvili, Alexander Apshiev. Coach: Gavriil Kachalin.
Dinamo came very close to advance in 1998–99 UEFA Champions League group stages, but were eliminated by Athletic Bilbao on away goals rule 2–1, 0–1. Later, the migration of the key players to Western European clubs caused negative results. It became harder and harder for the club to win the Georgian Championship or Georgian Cup.
In the 1950s, the team was led by Avtandil Gogoberidze who spent 14 years with Dinamo. He still holds the record for games played and goals scored for Dinamo, with 341 matches and 127 goals.

In 1990 the Georgian Football Federation refused to participate in the Soviet Union championship. That meant that no Georgian Football Clubs would appear in Soviet tournaments. From that moment the more recent history of FC Dinamo Tbilisi began.

In 1982 Dinamo qualified to semi-final in Cup Winners` Cup tournament and were eliminated by Standard Liège. In the 1980s numerous skillful players appeared in the team, but for various reasons they were not able to do their best: Grigol Tsaava, Mikheil Meskhi (Junior), Otar Korghalidze, Gia Guruli, Mamuka Pantsulaia, Merab Jordania, Levan Baratashvili and many other talented players.
In 2009 the club beat Olimpi Rustavi and won the Georgian Cup.
The club played its first match in the Georgian National championship against Kolkheti Poti on March 30, 1990. Dinamo lost the historic match, 0–1. Ultimately the club recovered from this setback and won the first Georgian National championship. The club also won the next 9 championships.

Despite their success in the middle years of the 1930s, the football federation of the Soviet Union placed FC Dinamo Tbilisi in the first league instead of the Top League. Dinamo continued to show good form against the top teams, winning 9–5 in Tbilisi against probably the best team in the USSR championship, Dynamo Moscow. They later beat Dinamo Leningrad 3–2, winning 5 matches out of 6 plus a draw against Stalinec Moscow. This was enough for Dinamo to qualify for the top League.
In 1995 the stadium was renamed Boris Paichadze National Stadium after a major Georgian international footballer. It is home to the Georgia national football team. Holding lit torches, 80,000 fans came in 1981 to congratulate the team on their European Cup Winners Cup triumph.
