Defunct Meistriliiga clubs.

I was looking at some player profiles and noticed they played for clubs that are now defunct, such as the two Tallinn clubs, Sadam and Lantana. I was just wondering what happened to these clubs, something financial, was it because no one attended the games, though saying that, attendances now are still poor, so would you say the futures of clubs like Flora and Levadia are more stable than past clubs that had such short histories?

If that is reason, then about 90% clubs would be defunct already

Actually are ofcourse reasons in finance. Most famous example are Estonian champion from 2005 TVMK, who ended activity just 3 years later.
Flora has been so stable (tbf they have got also difficult periodies) ofcourse thanks to it, that Flora is some kind of Estonia FA football club. Owner is same, stadium (A Le Coq Arena was built by Flora, not by FA), they have Estonia biggest club structure (sister clubs, who has now independeced, example in Viljandi, Kuressaare and Paide).

Levadia reminds me a bit Chelsea. Ukrainan business, owner of company called Levadia (his name is Viktor Levada) took over one Esiliiga club in 1998 and since then, its grown up Estonia all time most successful club.
Quote:
SK FC Levadia was founded in 1998, when metal manufacturer OÜ Levadia accepted to support Estonian Esiliiga club, FK Olümp Maardu. For the honor of new sponsor, FK Olümp Maardu changed its name to FC Levadia. Successful cooperation followed helping the club win the Esiliiga and promotion to the Meistriliiga.
Merge with Tallinna Sadam[edit]
In preparing for the next season in the Meistriliiga, the team needed replenishments. At the same time, Tallinna Sadam was ending its time as a football club and both teams' chairmen Viktor Levada (Levadia) and Vladimir Volohhonski (Tallinna Sadam) decided to merge. F.C. Levadia Tallinn was formed
Debut Season[edit]
FC Levadia's debut season was very successful with the team winning 4 trophies; the League Cup, the Meistriliiga,the Estonian Cup and the Estonian SuperCup earning rave reviews in the Estonian media.

There was a club called Merkuur in Tartu which was known as the "Russian" club of Tartu while Tammeka was the "Estonian" club. It later changed its name to JK Maag and soon after merged with Tammeka.

Also the first Estonian champion FC Norma is defunct by now...not sure if the company still exists (it used to be a major seatbelt manufacturer in the 90s).

The old JK Tervis Pärnu is also defunct, apparently...I thought they still exist in lower leagues.

Now dissolved TVMK has existed under many different names:


TVMK Tallinn (1951–1991)
TVMV Tallinn (1992)
Tevalte-Marlekor (1995–1996)
FC Marlekor (1996–1997)
TVMK Tallinn (1997–2008)

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim
