HistoryEdit

DO/SKA Kyiv (1934–1992)Edit

The football team has founded in 1934 in Kharkiv as part of the Soviet Officers' Club (later CSKA) receiving the name UVO Kharkiv (Ukrainian: Український Військовий Округ, Ukrainian Military District – Kharkiv). During the Soviet regime the team was part of the Soviet Armed Forces sports society. At the end of 1934 the team was transferred to Kyiv during the transfer of republican capital. Its name has changed to DO Kyiv (Ukrainian: Дім офіцерів, Officers' Club – Kyiv). In 1947–1956 the team was called ODO Kyiv (District Officers' Club – Kyiv) and in 1952, under this name, the team reached the semifinal stage of the Soviet National Cup. In 1957, the team played under the name OSK Kyiv (District Sports Club – Kyiv). The year of 1957 is considered the official year of establishment of CSK ZSU. In 1957–1959 the Kyivan army men football team was called SKVO Kyiv (Sports Club Military District – Kyiv) and in 1960–1971 – SKA Kyiv (Sports Club of Army – Kyiv). In 1972, the team moved to Chernihiv and changed its name to SK Chernihiv and had moved back to Kyiv in 1976 as SKA. In 1981–1982, the team had its last Soviet First League stint at the second level of Soviet football.

CSKA Kyiv (1992–1994)Edit

FC CSKA Kyiv was created in place of the Soviet football team SKA Kyiv on 15 December 1992 during the reorganization of the Ukrainian military. Its first season in 1992 the club finished under its old name SKA Kyiv which was changed during the summer of 1992 to ZS – Oriana (abbr. Armed ForcesOriana). In 1993 team changed its name to ZS – Oriana (Armed Forces – Oriana) and then to CSK ZSU (Central Sport Club of Armed Forces of Ukraine). The highest place it reached in the Ukrainian championships was the fifth in the First League.

Second team of CSKA-Borysfen & Arsenal (1994–2001)Edit

In 1994, FC CSKA Kyiv while being in the Third League was promoted to the Second League. Borysfen Boryspil that was playing in the 1994–95 Ukrainian First League in the mid-season merged with the Central Sports Club of the Armed Forces of Ukraine under the name FC CSKA-Borysfen Kyiv. At that time the Central Sports Club of the Armed Forces of Ukraine obtained two professional teams, one in the Ukrainian First League, while the other in the Ukrainian Second League. FC CSKA Kyiv was kept as the Borysfen's second team in the Second League. In 1995 FC CSKA-Borysfen Kyiv was promoted to the Ukrainian Higher League.

Upon conclusion of the 1995–96 Ukrainian Premier League season Borysfen was omitted from the name and the reserve team, which coincidentally gained promotion to the First League now, automatically became CSKA-2 Kyiv. In 1997 Boryspil team was restored first on the Amateur Level and then gaining professional status once again.

In 2001, the Central Sports Club of the Armed Forces of Ukraine sold the club. The first team was bought by the Kyivan municipal administration and reformed into the new Kyivan club "FC Arsenal Kyiv". In turn, the second team was sold to another owner and reverted to the name of CSKA Kyiv continuing to play in the Ukrainian First League.
