The 2013–14 Ukrainian Premier League season was the 23rd since its establishment.

A total of sixteen teams participated in the league. Fifteen teams from last season's competition and one promoted club from the 2012–13 Ukrainian First League formed the league. The competition commenced on the 12 July 2013 when Tavriya Simferopol hosted Zorya Luhansk.[4] Eighteen rounds were played prior to the winter recess.[5] The competition was affected by the political turmoil that affected Ukraine during the spring session.

Civil unrest and its effects on the league[edit]

In November 2013, during the winter break of the Ukrainian Premier League, a wave of demonstrations and civil unrest labelled Euromaidan started in Ukraine.[6] The competition was to resume on 1 March 2014,[5] but due to the civil unrest in the country after the riots in Kiev and continuing on with the Crimean crisis, the Premier League delayed the start of the spring stage.[7] A decision was made by the Ukrainian Premier League to resume the competition on 15 March.[1]

After the annexation of Crimea by Russia in March 2014 the teams from Crimea, namely Sevastopol and Tavriya Simferopol, continued to participate in the competition.[6][8]

During the May 2014 pro-Russian conflict in Ukraine the Football Federation of Ukraine (after being advised to do so by the Ukrainian Interior Ministry[9]) decided that all matches across all Ukrainian leagues, as well as the 2014 Ukrainian Cup Final, would be played behind closed doors for security reasons.[10]

The unrest in Ukraine since November 2013 lead to an unexpected sense of unity among rival Ukrainian football fans.[9] Various formerly bitter rival football fans (also those from Russophone cities in Ukraine) held pro-Ukrainian Unity marches.[9][11]

Teams[edit]

The two relegated teams were to be replaced by the champions and the runners-up of the 2012–13 Ukrainian First League, Sevastopol[12] and Stal Alchevsk. Stal Alchevsk were to be promoted after finishing runners-up but their club administration refused promotion.[13]

Kryvbas Kryvyi Rih were denied a license for the 2013–14 season due to financial problems on 31 May 2013 and were expelled.[14]

Hoverla Uzhhorod, the 15th placed team was allowed to stay in the Premier League after they passed attestation.[15]

Metalurh Zaporizhya, the last-placed of the 2012–13 Ukrainian Premier League was to be relegated to the Ukrainian First League at the end of the previous season[16] but since no other team applied for entry from the Ukrainian First League they remained in the competition.[15]

Notes:
1 On 18 June 2014 UEFA published seeding ranking for the upcoming 2014-15 UEFA Champions League season where FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk were pending approval of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) on 19 June 2014 to participate in the competition.[56] The main issue that might have impeded Dnipro to participate in the continental competitions was the "Boateng case".[57] The conflict arose during the 2012-13 season[58] when Derek Boateng unsuccessfully tried to leave the club due to breach of contract and was forced to file a case against the club through the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.[57][59] The end result was that Dnipro did play in the 2014-15 Champions League 3rd qualifying round (and, subsequently, the Europa League).

2 On 4 April 2014, UEFA barred FC Metalurh Donetsk in the next UEFA club competition for which they would otherwise qualify in the next three seasons for failing to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.[55] Metalurh lodged an appeal against the UEFA resolution.[60]

3 After the annexation of Crimea by Russia, FC Sevastopol and SC Tavriya Simferopol were officially disbanded and in their place were created new clubs that aimed to participate in the Russian competitions next season.[61][62]

4 On 20 May 2014, FC Volyn Lutsk were deducted three points by the FFU for breach of financial rules.[63]

5 On 29 October 2013, the general director of FC Arsenal Kyiv Viktor Holovko announced that the club is filling for bankruptcy and withdrawing from competitions as it was unable to find any sponsors.[64][65] The General Assembly of the Ukrainian Premier League was unable to reach a quorum and hence no decision was made on the expulsion of the club from the UPL.[66] (18 December 2013) On 12 February 2014 Arsenal Kyiv was officially expelled from the league and all club's results were annulled.[67] Arsenal played 13 games with record 3 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses with 10 goals scored and 28 goals scored against and also one technical defeat was recorded against them.
