FC Spartak Sumy
|Full name||FC Spartak Sumy|
|Founded||1999 (1982 as Yavir)|
|Ground||Yuvileiny Stadium, Sumy|
Yavir was established on January 12, 1982 at the village forestry Krasnopillya. The team started playing in the regional championship and after couple of years became the regional champion. The following year it won the regional cup.
In the first national championship of Ukraine Yavir Krasnopillya became involved in the professional leagues, first in the Ukrainian Second League, then in the 1992. In 1995, Yavir Krasnopillya won the second league title. In the 1995–96 season, Yavir entered the league and in the next 4 seasons became quite a strong mid-table team.
At that time the established local teams in Sumy – FC Frunzenets Sumy and FC Avtomobilist Sumy suddenly folded and disappeared altogether. As a result of this, the regional leaders decided to revive football in Sumy. With this purpose in 1998, Yavir was transferred to the regional center and renamed Yavir-Sumy. As such, the club lasted half the season, then transformed into FC Sumy, and once more into Spartak Sumy. From 2003, the team was called Spartak-Horobyna Sumy.
In the 2006–07 season they played in the Ukrainian First League. However the club was withdrawn from the league (and subsequently folded) after missing two Ukrainian First League matches due to financial difficulties.
