The Prykarpattia club was originally known as Fakel Ivano-Frankivsk, a Ukrainian football club based in Ivano-Frankivsk. The club was formed out of a school team of the University of Nafty i Hazu (Oil & Gas). After gaining promotion from the Druha Liha, the club began seeking financial support knowing that the club would not be able to be viable in the Persha Liha.
On 17 July 2007, information was released to the media that FC Fakel Ivano-Frankivsk had been reformed into the FSC Prykarpattia. This reformation was to keep the historically traditional name of the team that was associated with Ivano-Frankivsk.
The initiative came from the former president of the old Prykarpattya, Anatoliy Revutskyi who together with the mayor of Ivano-Frankivsk, Viktor Anushkevichus, the president of the FC Fakel, Evstahiy Kryzhanivskyi, and Andriy Romanchuk signed the documents of the establishment of the Football Sport Club Prykarpattya. The director of the Municipal Central Stadium "Rukh" ("Movement" in English), Ivan Sliusar became the executive director of the club.
The new club's logo carries the year of the club's establishment 1989 with the name FC Prykarpattia. This implies that Spartak renamed themselves this name and continued to compete in the Ukrainian First League. A similar occurrence took place with FC LUKOR Kalush in 2003. With this reformation, FC Spartak Ivano-Frankivsk was reestablished at the Oblast championship as part of FSC Prykarpattia under the name of Prykarpattia-2 Ivano-Frankivsk.
On 29 July 2010, information was released to the media that FSC Prykarpattia had been reformed into the Professional Football Club Prykarpattia. Ivano-Frankivsk Town Council and Limited liability company "Skorzonera" (owner of tourism complex "Bukovel") are club's founders.
The club dissolved in the summer of 2012 and were expelled from the PFL when they were not included in the draw for the first round of the next season.
