Ukrainian Footballer of the Year

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Ukrainian Footballer of the Year is an annual journalist award given by the Ukrainskiy Football ("Ukrainian Football") newspaper to the best professional Ukrainian footballer since 1991. From 1969 till 1990, the Ukrainian newspaper Molod Ukrainy ("Youth of Ukraine") conducted polls to determine the footballer of the year, and subsequently Ukrainskiy Football took over (which is published by the same publisher as Molod Ukrainy) from 1991. Until 1991 not all players who were honored as the Ukrainian Footballer were Ukrainians.

There is also another award of the best footballer in the Ukrainian Premier League that was established in 1995 by the other newspaper Komanda. That award is not restricted to the Ukrainian nationals as in case of Ukrainian Football, but rather to the premier league players.

Overview[edit]

Before 1969 a similar award was given out by another Kiev publishers. The very first one was awarded in 1950 by the Football Federation of Ukraine, but its award discontinued in 1960. Since 1960 the honors of awarding player of the year was picked up by the weekly Radyanskyi sport ("Soviet sports") which in 1965 changed its name to Sportyvna Hazeta ("Sports Gazette"). For unknown reason the tradition was interrupted and in 1968 it was given out by another former Kievan Russian-language newspaper Komsomolskoe znamya ("Banner of the Communist Union of Youth") which announced both Vasyl Turyanchyk and Volodymyr Muntyan the best players of Ukraine (Ukrainian SSR). As with the "Sportyvna Gazeta" it is unknown whether the newspaper continued to conduct such polls following years, but it is certain that this tradition was picked up by a Ukrainian-language Kiev newspaper Molod Ukrainy ("Youth of Ukriane") that conducted the voting since 1969 on regular basis.
