Azerbaijan's longest league winning run belongs to Kapaz PFC.
In 1991, club once again renamed to Kapaz after Azerbaijan's independence from Soviet Union and won Azerbaijan Premier League titles three times. In 1997, Kapaz were known for their unbeaten run as club's final record for the 1997–1998 league campaign stood at 22 wins, 4 draws and 0 losses, out of 26 games total, an unbeaten run not matched in any single season by any team in an Azerbaijani league division.
Kapaz PFK (Azerbaijani: Kəpəz Peşəkar Futbol Klubu), is an Azerbaijani football club based in Ganja, that currently plays in the Azerbaijan Premier League.
Football in Azerbaijan can be traced back to 1911, having been introduced by British workers during the industrial boom of the late 19th century. The game caught on in the capital Baku and the provincial cities of Tovuz and Shamkir, inspiring such passions that neutral referees were drafted in from neighbouring Georgia to supervise big matches.
• President of top Baku club PFK Neftçi since 2004, he oversaw successes in the league and the Commonwealth Cup – the competition that brings together champions of the former Soviet Republics – before being elected president of the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan (AFFA) on 14 March 2008. He was re-elected unanimously for a second term in March 2012, and won a third four-year term in March 2016.

In April 2013, Kapaz were relegated to the Azerbaijan First Division, by ending in 12th position in Azerbaijan Premier League, the club's lowest ever league finish. The club's financial situation didn't improve, which caused a lot of players to leave the club.
By the 1920s there was a regional championship in Baku, before the 1930s saw Azerbaijani clubs represent the country in the Soviet leagues. A breakthrough came after World War Two when Neftçi PFK, Soviet Cup debutants in 1944, competed in the Soviet Top League. Neftçi finished third in the top flight in 1966, and a player from the Baku club, Anatoliy Banishevskiy, starred for the USSR at the FIFA World Cup in England.
Kapaz PFC remain the only team to win the league undefeated, and for ten months until 23 September 1998 opponents could not even take a point off them. It should be noted, though, that two of the 22 matches were technical victories awarded to Käpäz.
The club have one of the biggest number of supporters population alongside Neftchi Baku and Khazar Lankaran in Azerbaijan. Kapaz PFC have highest average fan attendance at their home games among all Azerbaijani professional football clubs. According to the official statistics for the first half of 2015-16 season, Kapaz PFC ranked first in fan attendance at nearly 15,000 fans per home game almost triple that of their nearest rival.
