SC Tavriya Simferopol (Ukrainian: СК «Таврія» Сімферополь) is a football club from Simferopol, which plays in the Ukrainian Premier League. Tavriya is Crimea's most successful football club and won the very first Ukrainian Premier League, making them one of three teams that have ever held this title.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1958, under the name 'Avanhard'. Tavriya played their first game in the USSR Championship against the Yaroslav based club Khimik. Overall, Tavriya played 132 clubs from 113 cities. They played their last match of the Soviet competition against FC Uralmash Yekaterinburg.

Post-Soviet[edit]

After the fall of the Soviet Union, the Ukrainian Premier League was formed. Tavria was one of its founders and eventually became the very first Ukrainian champion in 1992, under the Simferopol born manager Anatoliy Zayaev, defeating FC Dynamo Kyiv, Ukraine's most successful club in the final, held in Lviv. Yuriy Hudymenko became the leagues top scorer. More players from that era were Oleksandr Holovko, a defender who also played many years for Ukraine national team, and captain Serhiy Yakovych Shevchenko, who scored the championship goal against Dynamo Kyiv. Having earned the right to participate in 1992–93 UEFA Champions League, Tavryia were knocked out in the first round by Swiss club FC Sion. The Russian Sport-Express posted an article (№3 (43), 25 January 2000, page 9) stating that the Ukrainian champions Tavria were threatened by the Football Federation of Ukraine to compete at the CIS Cup in 1993.

Tavria is one of the five clubs to have so far participated in every season of the Ukrainian Premier League. Their best performance in the Ukrainian Cup came in 2010, where they defeated FC Metalurh Donetsk in the final to win the competition. They had previously reached the final in 1994, where they lost to FC Chornomorets Odessa in a penalty shootout.
