Football Club Illichevets Mariupol (Ukrainian: Футбо́льний клуб «Іллічі́вець» Маріу́поль [ilʲi't͡ʃivɛt͡sʲ mɐri'upolʲ], Russian: Футбо́льный клуб «Ильичёвец» Мариу́поль [ɪlʲɪˈtɕɵvʲɪts mərʲɪˈupəlʲ]) is a Ukrainian professional football club based in Mariupol.

The club is named after the Illich Steel and Iron Works in Mariupol.

Quick overview[edit]

Football Club Illichevets Mariupol was created in 1960 as Azovstal based on a former two teams of physical culture (a type of amateur clubs) FC Avanhard Zhdanov and FC Shakhtar Rutchenkove. The new team of masters Azovstal Zhdanov sponsored by the local Azovstal iron and steel works applied to Soviet competitions for teams of masters in Class B (at that time the second division).

After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1992, the club changed its name to old one Azovets (part of the Azovmash's SC Novator). In summer of 1995 it merged with FC Dynamo Luhansk and during following spring changed its name again to Metalurh.

FC Metalurh Mariupol changed its name to Illichivets during the winter break of the 2002–2003 season when the club was acquired by the Illich Steel and Iron Works.

Illichivets were relegated to Ukrainian First League in the 2006–07 season after finishing 15th (out of 16). However, they returned to the Ukrainian Premier League the following season after finishing as champions in the 2007–08 Ukrainian First League.
