FC Sevastopol was a Ukrainian football club based in Sevastopol. The club was a spiritual descendant of the Soviet clubs from Sevastopol such as Chaika Sevastopol. After the completion of 2013–14 Ukrainian Premier League season due to the 2014 Crimean Conflict, the club ceased its existence and applied for a Russian license with the new name FC SKChF Sevastopol.[1]

History[edit]

The current club was founded in 2002 after another club from Sevastopol Chaika Sevastopol was relegated from professional ranks and dissolved. FC Sevastopol started out from the Ukrainian Second League and soon was promoted to the Ukrainian First League in 2007. In 2010–11 the club took part in the Premier League of Ukraine for the first time. The club was relegated in its first season back in the Ukrainian First League once more. But the club returned to the Ukrainian Premier League after one season there in which they won promotion to the Ukrainian Premier League.[2] After the annexation of Crimea by Russia, FC Sevastopol asked permission from UEFA and FIFA to shift to the Russian league next season.[3] The new club, FC SKChF Sevastopol, began playing in Russian competitions in August 2014. [4]

The club's colours are all red (home) and all dark blue (away).

Stadium[edit]

For the first half of the 2009–10 season the home ground of the club was located outside the Sevastopol city limits. FC Sevastopol played at the Druzhba Stadium located in Bakhchisaray, Crimea.[5] After the winter break they returned to their home ground Sevastopol Sports Complex. There are promises to rebuild the Hirnyk Stadium in Balaklava, which is part of the Sevastopol municipality. The reconstruction of Hirnyk is predicted to take place some time in the future.
