Football Club Hoverla Uzhhorod (Ukrainian: Футбольний Клуб «Говерла» Ужгород [ɦo'vɛrlɐ 'uʒɦorod]) is a Ukrainian professional football club based in Uzhhorod.

History[edit]

See also: SC Rusj Uzhorod

The club was inaugurated in 1946 as Spartak Uzhhorod. However some of its emblems point to a predecessor, SC Rus, founded in 1925, although direct links between the two franchises can barely be traced. In 1961 Spartak was renamed Verhovyna, and in 1971 Hoverla. In 1982, it was renamed Zakarpattia, then Verhovyna again in 1997 for two years.

Zakarpattia started the 2001–02 season in the Ukrainian Premier League, but a last-place finish saw the club demoted to the Ukrainian First League. They returned in 2004–05 and 2007–08 but each time with the same result: relegation from the Premier League after a single season.

Before the start of the 2011–12 Ukrainian First League season the club renamed itself FC Hoverla-Zakarpattia Uzhhorod.[1]

The team renamed themselves Hoverla prior to the start of the 2012–13 Ukrainian Premier League season.[2]
