Current season

MFC Kremin Kremenchuk (Ukrainian: MФК Кремінь Кременчук; Russian: Кремень Кременчуг, Kremen Kremenchug) is a professional football club based in Kremenchuk, Ukraine. The current club was established in 2003, but it traces its heritage to the previously existing Soviet club of 1959. Since the 2005–06 season, the city's club has taken part in the Ukrainian Second League replacing another team Vorskla-2 Poltava.

History[edit]

The Soviet club was established in 1959 by the Kremenchuk factory of road equipment "Kredmash" as Dnipro Kremenchuk (Dnyepr Kremenchug) and entered the Soviet football competitions in the Class B (the 3rd tier). The club participated in 10 seasons and once it was promoted to the second group of Class A (the 2nd tier). During that time the team was coached by Borys Usenko. In 1970 the club has folded.

In 1985, the club was reestablished when Naftovyk Kremenchuk was merged with SC KrAZ Kremenchuk. Naftovyk Kremenchuk was sponsored by the Kremenchuk Oil Refinery, while SC KrAZ Kremenchuk was a sports club of the Ukrainian truck builder AutoKrAZ. The new club under the name Kremin has won the Soviet amateur football competition in 1988 and the next year entered the Soviet Second League competitions.

From 1992–97, Kremin has 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 Zone of the Soviet Second League in 1991. Kremin spent the next two seasons after that in Ukrainian First League and was demoted further to Ukrainian Second League in 1999. Soon after that the club folded and ceased to exist.

In 2003 the city authorities of Kremenchuk decided to reanimate the club once again. For the first two seasons Kremin played in the Poltava Oblast Championship and in the 2005–06 season it joined once again with the new name MFC Kremin Krimenchuk.

Kremin Kremenchuk's best achievement in the Ukrainian Premier League was 9th place (twice, in 1992–93 and 1995–96), while reaching the semi-finals in the Ukrainian National Cup in 1996.

Crest and Colours[edit]

Home colors are blue shirts, blue shorts, and blue socks. Away uniforms are white shirts, white shorts, and white socks.

The team kits are produced by Puma AG and the shirt sponsor is KremenchukMiaso «Кременчукм’ясо».[3]

Since the club's foundation, Kremin has had three main crests.

Stadium[edit]

From its inception the team played at the Polytechnic Stadium, however, that stadium has fallen into disrepair, and after one season of play at Yunist Stadium in Komsomolsk, the team have moved into their brand new stadium. City officials built FC Kremin Stadium which has covered stands for 1500 spectators and artificial pitch surface.
