FC Obolon-Brovar Kyiv is a Ukrainian professional football club based in Kyiv (Obolon Raion). Its home colors are green shirts and white shorts; while its away uniforms displayed white shirts and green shorts. The club was reformed from FC Obolon Kyiv after the club was liquidated after funding by their President Oleksandr Slobodian was cut and hence the team withdrew from the Professional Football League of Ukraine during the 2012–13 Ukrainian First League season in February 2013.[2]

The team is playing since the 2013–14 Ukrainian Second League season.[3]


In early March 2013 it was announced that the former honorary president of Obolon Kyiv, Oleksandr Slobodyan would form a new football team called Obolon Brovar. Legally the team could not keep the old name and had to register a new name.[4]

Learning about a new club, the fans of Obolon immediately appealed to the new leadership of Obolon-Brovar with a request to leave the symbols and logos of the old club. Also they asked not to put on the club emblem the year the club was founded.[4]

Only the doctors, administrators, massage therapists and reserve team coach Obolon-2 Kyiv Oleg Mazurenko moved from the former club to the new club. Also some players from Obolon-2 Kyiv and experienced defenders Andriy Kornyev and Valeriy Ivaschenko, who once played for Obolon Kyiv. All the rest were alumni from the Youth Academy Zmina-Obolon. Serhiy Soldatov was appointed head coach of the new team, who worked previously in the Youth Academy which was based with the team "Obolon Brovar".[4]


Obolon Brovar play their home games at the Obolon Arena.[1]
