FC Knyazha Shchaslyve is a Ukrainian football team based in the village of Shchaslyve (to the west of Boryspil), in the Kiev Oblast of Ukraine, that competed in the professional leagues.


After the winter break before the resumption of competition in March 2009 the administration of FC Knyazha Schaslyve removed both the main club from the Ukrainian First League and its reserve team FC Knyazha-2 Schaslyve from the Ukrainian Second League.[1]

The administration indicated that the club would not cease to exist but would restructure and function in some form, especially at the junior or youth levels.[2]

It was founded in 2005. Knyazha won the Ukrainian Second League Group A championship in the 2007/08 season and were promoted to the Ukrainian First League. After the promotion of Knyazha to the Ukrainian First League, the club entered FC Knyazha-2 Schaslyve in the Ukrainian Second League which is to train up young players for the main team.[3]
