History[edit]

In early March 2013 it was announced that the former honorary president of Obolon Kyiv, Oleksandr Slobodyan would form a new football team called Obolon Brovar. Legally the team could not keep the old name and had to register a new name.[4]

Learning about a new club, the fans of Obolon immediately appealed to the new leadership of Obolon-Brovar with a request to leave the symbols and logos of the old club. Also they asked not to put on the club emblem the year the club was founded.[4]

Only the doctors, administrators, massage therapists and reserve team coach Obolon-2 Kyiv Oleg Mazurenko moved from the former club to the new club. Also some players from Obolon-2 Kyiv and experienced defenders Andriy Kornyev and Valeriy Ivaschenko, who once played for Obolon Kyiv. All the rest were alumni from the Youth Academy Zmina-Obolon. Serhiy Soldatov was appointed head coach of the new team, who worked previously in the Youth Academy which was based with the team "Obolon Brovar".[4]
