FC TSK Simferopol ( Russian: ФК «ТСК» Симферополь) is a Crimean football team based in Simferopol.
History [ edit ]
It was founded in 2014 after
Crimea was annexed by Russia. Ukrainian Premier League club SC Tavriya Simferopol was liquidated and a new team was organized instead, registered according to the laws of Russia. It then was licensed to participate in the third-tier Russian Professional Football League in the 2014–15 season. As Ukraine considers Crimea Ukrainian territory, the Football Federation of Ukraine lodged a complaint with UEFA about Crimean clubs' participation in Russian competitions. On 22 August 2014, UEFA decided "that any football matches played by Crimean clubs organised under the auspices of the Russian Football Union will not be recognised by UEFA until further notice".
On 4 December 2014, UEFA banned Crimean clubs from participating in Russian professional competitions,
and announced that a new local  Crimean League will be set up in the future that UEFA will manage directly.
The club won the first-ever
Crimean Premier League in 2015–2016.
TSK in the name stands for "Таврия Симферополь Крым" (Tavria – Simferopol – Crimea).
