FC Polissya Zhytomyr (named MFC Zhytomyr until March 2017, Ukrainian: Муніципальний футбольний клуб "Житомир") is a Ukrainian football club based in Zhytomyr, Polesia. The club plays in the Amateurs championship. Their home were Spartak and Kolos stadiums. Since being admitted to the Ukrainian Second League, the club's current stadiums do not qualify for the competition. While the city's main arena under reconstruction, the club is forced to look for an alternative.
It was founded in 2016 and is the second known attempt to create football city team in Zhytomyr.
Originally an attempt to create the club took place back in 2005 on initiative of Hennadiy Zabrodsky soon after the dissolution of FC Polissya Zhytomyr. At that time facing a danger of losing professional football team, Zhytomyr paradoxically witnessed creation of two teams in the place of one. The new club was created in place of the existing amateur FC Arsenal Zhytomyr. The creation of the city club was supported by the city's government as part of local elections, which, however, after the city mayor lost, the club, after playing first half of the season, was dissolved. Some players moved to the regional club OFC Zhytychi Zhytomyr.
MFC Zhytomyr started to play at Tsentralnyi Stadion (Central Stadium), however soon at the stadium started renovations and the club moved to smaller Kolos Stadion.
