Krystal Kherson is a professional football club from Kherson in Ukraine that has a long history in the Soviet and then the Ukrainian Leagues.

History[edit]

Predecessors[edit]

Before the World War II, there existed Lokomotyv Kherson (like in 1938).

Following the war, since 1946 Kherson was represented by Spartak, in 1947 – Dynamo, in 1948 and 1949 – Avanhard.

Since 1950 Kherson was represented again by Spartak Kherson. In 1957 Spartak played for the last time at republican level. In 1958 Spartak Kherson was admitted to the Soviet Class B.

In 1958 and 1959 Kherson was represented by Avanhard in Ukrainian republican competitions, while Spartak continued to play in Class B.

Club's history[edit]

Original club[edit]

The club was formed in 1961 at the Kherson Semiconductor Factory as Mayak (English: Lighthouse). The club replaced the previous city team of masters Spartak Kherson that represented Kherson since 1958.

In 1963 the club was renamed as Stroitel (Budivelnyk). Due to reforms in Soviet football, the division where Stroitel played was demoted the third tier.

In 1965 the club was renamed again as Lokomotyv. The very same year another Lokomotyv Kherson also played in the newly formed competitions among physical fitness clubs. In 1968 the Kherson club was promoted and for couple of seasons played at Class A until 1970 reform when it was admitted to the newly formed Soviet Second League (again as the third tier).

In 1976 the club was renamed for the third time as Krystal.

When Ukraine became independent the club entered the Persha Liha. Unfortunately, the club was relegated to the Druha Liha where it competed until the club's administration dissolved the club in 2006 and for the first time since 1958 the city did not have own professional club.

Second edition[edit]

The club was revived and entered into Ukrainian Amateur competition (Fourth level) in 2011. After a five-year absence from the professional leagues Krystal Kherson applied for readmittance to the Professional Football League of Ukraine and was admitted. The club will compete in the Ukrainian Second League for the 2011–12 season.[1]

In 2017 the club was reorganized and started out again from afresh.

Other clubs[edit]

In 1982 and 1988 there also existed club Shlyakhovyk that played in competitions among physical culture clubs (KFK).
