FC Shakhtar Horlivka is a Ukrainian football club from Horlivka, Donetsk Oblast. Since its relegation from professional leagues in 2000, the club participated in the regional competitions of Donetsk Oblast until the War in Donbass.

Brief history[edit]

The club was created back in 1913 as the Football Association of the Gorlovka Artillery Works (FOGAZ). After the World War I and the Russian Civil War, the club was revived and until 1926 competed under its original name. In 1926 it was renamed into FC Metalist Horlivka. In 1928 the club was merged with another club from Horlivka, FC Hirnyk Horlivka, as FC Metalist Horlivka. The same year the club won its regional championship and qualified for the Ukrainian finals that took place in Kharkiv. In the finals FC Metalist placed second after the newly created FC Dynamo Kharkiv (descendent of FC Shturm and FC RabIs).

In 1934-1936 the club played as FC Dynamo Horlivka when 1936 it was merged with Dynamo Stalino into FC Vuhilnyky Horlivka and later participated in the Soviet competitions as Stakhanovets Stalino. In 1938 FC Vuhilnyky Horlivka was revived and participated in the Ukrainian republican competitions until 1959. Sometime after the World War II the club was renamed from FC Avanhard Horlivka to FC Shakhtar Horlivka.
