Its home colors where green shirts and white shorts; while its away uniforms displayed white shirts and green shorts. They also have an all yellow kit as backup. Its main sponsor was the brewery Obolon since 1999.

In December 2012 the President of Obolon Oleksandr Slobodian announced he would created a new team named "Obolon-Brovar".[2] This team came to life in the 2013–14 Ukrainian Second League season.[3]

History[edit]

The football club was created 1992 under the name Zmina.[4] The team changed its name to Zmina-Obolon in 1993 due to the fact that it was located in the historical locality near Kyiv. Later Zmina was dropped leaving only with Obolon in 1995, and Obolon PPO in 1997.[4] It adopted its current name on 23 April 2001.[4] In 1995 it received professional status and entered the Ukrainian Second League for the 1995–96 season.

After finishing 3rd in the Ukrainian First League 2001–02 season, Obolon was promoted to the Ukrainian Premier League when that competition expanded to 16 teams for the 2002–03 season. Obolon was relegated to the Ukrainian First League after finishing 15th (out of 16) in the 2004–05 season. Until 2002 Obolon played its home games at Zmina Stadium and sometimes at the sport complex of Bilshovyk factory.[4]

In the 2008–09 season, Obolon finished second in the Ukrainian First League and were promoted to the Ukrainian Premier League for the 2009–10 season for the second time.

The club competed in the Premier League for three seasons and was relegated after the 2011–12 Ukrainian Premier League season.

On 21 February 2013 the club withdrew voluntary from the Ukrainian First League.[1] Major club sponsor Slobodyan had refused to finance the club after goalkeeper Kostyantyn Makhnovskyi was sold by the club without his consent.[5]

In December 2012 the President of Obolon Oleksandr Slobodian announced he would created a new team under the moniker "Obolon-Brovar" (Obolon Brewary).[2] In spring 2013 the team applied to PFL and was accepted for the 2013–14 Ukrainian Second League season.[3]
