FC Poltava (Ukrainian: ФК Полтава, FC Poltava; Russian: ФК Полтава, FC Poltava) is a Ukrainian football club based in Poltava.

History

The club was created by the newly elected mayor of the Poltava city Andriy Matkovsky (2006) who is the club's Honorary President and the main sponsor. FC Poltava entered the professional leagues for the 2007–08 season in the Druha Liha B. The team started the season trepidly but in the second half they improved a great deal.

The teams goal is to train players for the teams of the Premier League and First League.[2] The club also has intentions to reestablish the forgotten Poltava derby that in the Soviet times took place between teams of Kolkhospnyk (today's Vorskla) and Lokomotyv. FC Poltava has an agreement of cooperation with the local Horpynka sports school. In summer of 2010 the club announced of its withdrawal from the professional football due to a biased attitude from the PFL of Ukraine, particularly its refereeing.[3] After some talks with several state officials and from Ministry of sport a consensus was found. It was decided that the club would continue its participation in the Second League.

Home uniforms are dark green.
