FC Sumy is a professional Ukrainian football team based in the city of Sumy. The current club is the second football project in the city, established in 2008 based on the local Krasnopillya football school. The club's emblem is based on Krasnopillya's as well. The original professional club was established in 1982 as Yavir, renamed as Yarir-Sumy when it relocated to the city in 1998. In 1999, the club was renamed Spartak Sumy. It then got promoted to the Ukrainian First League and played there until the end of the 2006–07 season, after which it folded. The Krasnopillya football school then re-opened the current club.

Since 2009, FC Sumy has played in FC Spartak Sumy's former stadium, the Yuvileiny Stadium. The stadium was completed in 2001, and seats 25,830 spectators. It cost the investors over 50 million euros to construct, making it the most expensive and largest stadium that any Ukrainian Second League club uses.

Brief history

FC Yavir

Yavir was established on January 12, 1982 at the village forestry Krasnopillya. The team started playing in the regional championship and after couple of years became the regional champion. The following year it won the regional cup.

When Ukraine became independent the club entered the Ukrainian Second League in 1992. In the first national championship of Ukraine Yavir Krasnopillya became involved in the professional leagues, first in the Ukrainian Second League, then in the 1992. In the 1995–96 season, Yavir entered the league and in the next 4 seasons became quite a strong mid-table team. After winning the championship in 1994 the club was promoted to the Ukrainian First League where they performed reasonably well. In 1995, Yavir Krasnopillya won the second league title.

In the winter of 1998 a business consortium bought out the club and moved it to Sumy renaming the club Yavir-Sumy. This meant that another club split away from FC Yavir Krasnopilya, and later that club became FC Spartak Sumy.

At that time the established local teams in Sumy – FC Frunzenets Sumy and FC Avtomobilist Sumy suddenly folded and disappeared altogether. As a result of this, the regional leaders decided to revive football in Sumy. With this purpose in 1998, Yavir was transferred to the regional center and renamed Yavir-Sumy. As such, the club lasted half the season, then transformed into FC Sumy, and once more into Spartak Sumy. From 2003, the team was called Spartak-Horobyna Sumy.

In the 2006–07 season they played in the Ukrainian First League. However the club was withdrawn from the league (and subsequently folded) after missing two Ukrainian First League matches due to financial difficulties.

FC Sumy

This club reformed in Krasnopilya as an amateur outfit that quickly impressed in the Sumy oblast by becoming runners up of the Oblast Cup in 2002. The club then embarked on a return to professional competition in 2003. In the fall of 2008 they changed their name once again to FC Sumy. They play in the yellow and green colors of their former stadium Kolos, which can accommodate up to 3,000 spectators. FC Sumy now play in the vastly superior Yuvileiny Stadium which can hold 25,830 spectators.

After the 2009–10 Ukrainian Second League season the club again found itself in financial distress and failed attestation, which was followed by their license being withdrawn by the PFL. [1] In July 2010 FC Sumy were readmitted to the Ukrainian Second League – please refer to 2010–11 Ukrainian Second League for details.

Please, note that the city of Sumy for quite some time used to have its own football teams during the Soviet period such as Spartak, Frunzenets, and others which eventually were disbanded. The "FC Sumy" football project is another attempt to reestablish the football tradition in the city.
