Krystal Kherson is a professional football club from Kherson in Ukraine that has a long history in the Soviet and then the Ukrainian Leagues.

History[edit]

The club was formed in 1961 as Krystal, however it started out to play as Mayak (English: Lighthouse). The club replaced the previous city club Spartak Kherson that represented Kherson since the end of World War II in 1946. Prior to the war, there was another club Vodnyk Kherson.

When Ukraine became independent the club was known as Krystal and it entered the Persha Liha. Unfortunately, the club was relegated to the Druha Liha where it competed until the clubs administration decided to leave the professional ranks in 2006.

The club entered into Ukrainian Amateur competition (Fourth level) in 2011.
