FC Lviv

FC Lviv - the team has been founded back in 1992, but has been merged with Karpaty Lviv in 2001. FC Lviv has always been a very strong opposition mainly relying on their home-grown players. The club has produced over the years well known players like Dmytro Semochko (played for Uralan, Dnipro and now Luch-Energia), Oleh Haras (known to play for Lokomotiv Moscow), Yuriy Virt (Shakhtar and Metalurh Donetsk), Marian Maruschak (Dynamo Kyiv, Zakarpattya, Obolon, Nyva Ternopil), Vitaliy Postranskyi (Rotor, Vorskla, Volyn).

In May 2006 it has been announced that first division side Hazovyk-Skala, which had been in financial troubles since the winter break, will be dislocated to Lviv and will be renamed to FC Lviv.
The club will have blue and white colours (like the old Lviv team)
The president is: Yuriy Kindzerskyi (also owns a team in the second division called Knyazha)
Club Logo:


Last friendlies:
FC Lviv 0:2 Karpaty
FC Lviv 3:0 Volyn

That's just great. The only concern is club's financial stability, let's hope that this is not a 2 season affair, as it happens way too often. Lviv has a long history having two good professional teams in the City. In the 60th-70th, it was SKA (Lviv) which was vying for the top positions in the Soviet second division, while Karpaty playing in the First and Elite Soviet divisions. About 10,000 fans would visit SKA games regularly, and Karpaty-SKA friendly derbi was almost a sold out. What was strange is that fans loved SKA, depsite the fact that it was financed by the Moscow Army. Some of the Karpaty's best players started in SKA (e.g., Yurchishin). In then, as Roman said, it was FC Lviv which was popular and successful in the 90th.

Nice result today:

FC Lviv - Volyn 3:0

Things do not look good for Volyn!
Really this club is going to have improve rapidly if they are to make any impact in Vyshcha.

As for FC Lviv - Good to see them return to Lviv.

But what is happening within the oblast.

Will teams prefer to stay with oblasts rather than go into the PFL??

If energy costs continue to go up it just make sense to stay with the confines of your oblast. Druha liha will diminish even more!

FC Lviv pre-season signings:

- Olexandr Bobak - ex-Tavria and Borysfen goalkeeper
- Serhiy Schaslyvyi - ex-Obolon defender
- Yuriy Voytovych - ex-Spartak IF midfielder
- Taras Hamarnyk - ex-Spartak IF midfielder
- Volodymyr Lukashuk - ex-Zorya, Karpaty and FC Lviv player
- Andriy Khanas - ex-Metalist defender/midfielder
- Oleh Teplyi - ex-Obolon striker
- Volodymyr Mazyar - ex-Stal D striker
- Pankiv and Romanyuk - loaned in from Karpaty
- Borys Baranets and Hryhoriy Baranets - recently released by Karpaty
...and few more 1988 year players...

Some prominent First Division players are listed there i must say, some even scored against Karpaty last season and some scored for - Voytovych's own goal in Lviv p

P.S. Tomorrow FC Lviv will play their first game in about 5 years home fixture vs Borysfen. Expect nothing but 3 points against this weakened side

FC Lviv defeated Sparatak (Symi) 1-0. The first away victory courtesy of Hritsenko's goal at the very beginning. So far, 2 games - 2 victories.

After playing three more relatively easy games (vs. Dnipro, Chernihiv, Desna), FC Lviv will face real examinations, playing 5 straight difficult games (vs. DK-2, Volyn', Zakarpattya, Oxtyrka & Obolon'). So, we'll know this team's ranking by mid-September.

Great news for the oblast to have a another respectable club in the city of Lviv. Just a quick question; with Kindzersky also owning a club in the Druha Liga, both FC Lviv and Knyazha cannot play in the same division?

Podillya was progressing well at the end of the Spring season (taking poitns from Obolon'), so I am not surprised
