FC Spartak Ivano-Frankivsk was a Ukrainian football team based in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, Ukraine, the unofficial capital of the Prykarpattia region.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1940 and was to play in the Druha Liha under the guidance of Mykola Prystay. The club has previously gone under the name FC Prykarpattia Ivano-Frankivsk from 1981 until 2003. Prykarpattia Ivano-Frankivsk took part in the first Ukrainian Premier League season in 1992, after being initially chosen to participate for being a runner-up from 1st Zone of the Soviet Second League B in 1991. After being demoted following their first season, the club returned to the Ukrainian Premier League in 1994 and remained there for six seasons.

After the 2007 season Spartak was relegated to the Second League, with no money. The club folded right before the start of the next season. Today it participates in the Ukrainian youth competition (under 17) under the name FC Spartak-93 Ivano-Frankivsk as feeder for FSC Prykarpattia Ivano-Frankivsk.

Prykarpattia Ivano-Frankivsk's best achievement in the Ukrainian Premier League was eleventh place (twice, in 1994–95 and 1995–96).

The team's colours were red shirts and white shorts.
