Originally founded in 1923, FC Arsenal Tula was promoted to the Russian Premier League in 2014 for the first time in its history after finishing as runners-up in the 2013–14 Russian National Football League. This achievement marked three successive promotions for the club. On its debut season in the 2014–15 Russian Premier League, it finished in last place and was relegated back to the FNL. The club spent one season in the FNL before returning to the Premier League for the 2016–17 season, in which they have competed since.[3] The club was relegated at the end of the 2021–22 Russian Premier League after taking last place.[4]

The team currently plays its home games in Arsenal Stadium, which has a capacity of 19,241.
