PFC Nyva Vinnytsia is a professional Ukrainian football club based in the city of Vinnytsia. The name "Nyva" literally means "grain field". The club originally was created in 1958 in the Soviet Union and in 2006 it dissolved. A new club was revived in Ukraine the same year, which however also folded in 2012.

History[edit]

From 1992 to 1998, Nyva Vinnytsia played in the Ukrainian Premier League, after being initially chosen to participate for being one of the top 9 (of 11) Ukrainian teams from the West Division of the Soviet Second League in 1991.

It had a little break in the '93 season when it joined the company of the second division teams in the First League. Nyva was quickly promoted back to the elite next season after gaining the top seat.

Nyva Vinnytsia's best achievement in the Ukrainian Premier League was 10th place (1993/94). The club also surprisingly made the Ukrainian Cup finals in 1996, only to lose to Dynamo Kyiv. As a result, Nyva took part in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, even progressing to the First round after beating Tallinna Sadam on away goals (1:2 loss in Tallinn and 1:0 win in Vinnytsia). However, Swiss side FC Sion beat the Ukrainian side with a 6:0 score on aggregate. (2:0 in Sion and 4:0 in Vinnytsia)

The club ceased to exist after it relegated from the First League in 2006 and because of financial difficulties. In 2006 it carried name FC Bershad of its farm-team and was based in little town Bershad, Vinnytsia oblast.

For the 2008–09 season the club reentered professional league competition into the Second League as FC Nyva-Svitanok, the new part of its name meaning dawn, or new beginning.

Home stadium

On 8 July 2008 the club changed their name from "FC Nyva-Svitanok Vinnytsia" to "PFC Nyva Vinnytsia".[1]
