History[edit]

SKA Kyiv (1934-1992)[edit]

The football team has originally founded in 1934 in Kharkiv as part of the Soviet Officers' Club (later CSKA) receiving the name UVO Kharkov (Ukrainian Military District - Kharkov). During the Soviet regime the team was part of the Soviet Armed Forces sports society. At the end of 1934 the team was transferred to Kiev during the transfer of republican capital. Its name has changed to DO Kiev (Officers' Club - Kiev). In 1947–1956 the team was called ODО Kiev (District Officers' Club - Kiev) and in 1952, under this name, the team reached the semifinal stage of the Soviet National Cup. In 1957 the team played under the name ОSK Kiev (District Sports Club - Kiev). The year of 1957 is considered the official year of establishment of CSK ZSU. In 1957–1959 the Kievan army men football team was called SKVО Kiev (Sports Club Military District - Kiev) and in 1960–1971 – SKA Kiev (Sports Club of Army - Kiev). In 1972 the team moved to Chernihiv and changed its name to SK Chernigov and had moved back to Kiev in 1976 as SKА. In 1981–1982, the team had its last Soviet First League stint at the second level of Soviet football.

CSCA Kyiv (1992-1994)[edit]

In the mid 90s a lot of football clubs in Ukraine went through all kinds of "shady" transactions: FC Metalurh Donetsk, FC Arsenal Kyiv, FC Shakhtar-2 Donetsk, and many others. Rearrangement of the Ukrainian Second League also played a big role in creating this confusion which brought all kinds of new and successful teams out of nowhere. Such strange ongoings which seemingly contradict the rules of the Fair Play, league places keep on being given to non-established teams such in case of the new FC Lviv, FC Spartak Ivano-Frankivsk, and FC Podillya Khmelnytskiy.

FC CSKA Kyiv was created in place of the Soviet football team SKA Kiev on December 15, 1992 during the reorganization of the Ukrainian military. Its first season in 1992 the club finished under its old name SKA Kiev which was changed during the summer of 1992 to ZS - Oriana (abbr. Armed Forces - Oriana). In 1993 team changed its name to ZS – Oriana (Armed Forces – Oriana) and then to CSK ZSU (Central Sport Club of Armed Forces of Ukraine). The highest place it reached in the Ukrainian championships was the fifth in the First League.

CSCA-Borysfen Kyiv (1994–2001)[edit]

In 1994 CSCA Kyiv while being in the Third League, but gaining promotion to the Second League, merged with Borysfen Boryspil. Borysfen Boryspil at that time place second in the First League and gained the promotion to the top level. The merger made CSKA-Borysfen and let the Boryspil's team move to Kiev. FC CSCA Kyiv was kept as the Borysfen's reserve team in the Second League.

  • Upon conclusion of the season Borysfen was omitted from the name and the reserve team, which coincidentally gained promotion to the First League, automatically became CSCA-2 Kyiv. In 1997 Boryspil team was restored first on the Amateur Level and then gaining professional status once again.

Arsenal Kiev & CSCA-2 Kyiv (2001–2009)[edit]

In 2001, when going into bankruptcy, the first team of CSCA was bought by the Kievan municipal administration and reformed as the new Kievan club "FC Arsenal Kyiv". In turn, the reserve side CSCA-2 Kyiv reverted to the name of CSCA Kyiv and became the senior side.

In 2009 the former reserve CSCA Kyiv team bankrupt and the team disappeared from football.
