Sardar Azmoun was born on January 1, 1995, in Gonbad-e Kavus, Iran. He is the child of former Iranian national volleyball team member Khalil Azmoun.
In 1983, Khalil Azmoun started playing volleyball professionally. He was admitted to the Iranian national youth team two years later, in 1985. He joined the national team in 1986 and played for them until 1991.
In 2001, Khalil Azmoun coached careers in the Iranian Club Super League. He also coached the Javaheri Gonbad VC.
The football star from Iran came from a hard-working middle-class family. He belongs to a Sunni family of Iranian Turkmen origin.
Khalil Azmoun has said about his son: "While my son Sardar was playing in Russian football clubs, his fans gave him the nickname of Sirik. As you know to ride, keeping and breeding horses is very popular in our region and hometown of Gonbad. "
Azmoun is also an avid horseman who participates in thoroughbred horse racing and breeding outside his football career. In his hometown of Gonbad-e Kavus, he is the proprietor of the Serik Horse Complex, a significant horse breeding, and racing complex.
In an interview from February 2022, Azmoun claimed to own 52 horses. For $500,000 in 2020, he acquired the Australian thoroughbred horse Serlik, trained by Michelle Payne, an Australian jockey. For $70,000 in 2021, Azmoun acquired a second Australian stallion, a colt by Palentino, who Payne would also train.
Khalil Azmounr has said about his son's interest: "Sardar had given the name of Sirik to his first horse. Sardar is a lover of equestrians, and holds a horse club in our city. Its name is Sirik club,"
Azmoun claims that his mother cooks roughly twenty different kinds of regional and traditional food each time she visits him in Russia. Then, she places the food in the freezer, and Sardar humorously cries out whenever there is no more food.
Even while there isn't much information on his siblings, we know a little about one. His sister Solmaz Azmoun stands out among them as a sportsperson who, like their parents, is a professional volleyball player.
His sister comes across as a private person because of Iran tradition. There are no pictures on her Instagram account, @swlmzazmwn. Nevertheless, she has around 200 followers.
