FC Helios (Ukrainian: ФК "Геліос") is a Ukrainian football club located in Kharkiv, Ukraine

History[edit]

FC Helios was founded in 2002 by Oleksandr Hellstein. The team quickly progressed through competitions in the Kharkiv Oblast and in 2003 the club advanced to play in the Druha Liha C. After finishing the 2004–2005 Druha Liha C season with a record of 25 wins, 2 ties, and only one loss, Helios advanced to the Persha Liha.

Colors and badge[edit]

FC Helios Kharkiv's colors are red, black and white and gold.

Stadium[edit]

In 2008 the club relocated to Krasnokutsk when the Metalist Stadium was put under renovation in the preparations to the EURO-2012. Before that the club played its games at the Dynamo Stadium in Kharkiv. The stadium was contracted by FC Kharkiv and put for reconstruction. The new stadium that Helios started to utilize belonged to the less successive club of KharkivHazovyk which now is defunct.

For the Ukrainian First League 2009-10 season Helios relocated back to Kharkiv and will be playing at the "Arsenal-Bavaria" Stadium. The owner of the facility, Arsenal Kharkiv, later announced its withdrawal from the PFL of Ukraine for the Ukrainian Second League 2009–10 season.[1] Remarkably, Arsenal's Bavaria Stadium is not the only stadium in their possession in the city. In July the stadium was renamed into Helios-Arena.[2]
