FC Yantra is a football club from Gabrovo, Bulgaria.  It was founded in the summer of 1919 under the name of FC City of Gabrovo. On 21 September 1919 the club played its first game against FC Gorna Oriahovitsa and won 1:0. In the beginning of 1920 the club joined gymnastics association Yunak, but later that year separated and took a new name sports club Balkan, which is followed by another change – FC Oto. The latter comes from one of the players – Spiridon Nedevsky, nicknamed Oto. The club subsequently changed its name to Aprilov, FC Chardafon, Chardafon-Orlovets. The name FC Yantra came up in 1973, and is used until now (excluding the period 1994 – 2001 when it played under FC Chardafon).
