HistoryEdit

Karpaty is one of the three surviving Ukrainian football team created in the Soviet Union that did not participate in the Football Championship of the Ukrainian SSR along with Dynamo Kyiv and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Early years (1963–68)Edit

The team of Karpaty was founded on January 18, 1963. In 1962 Silmash Lviv won the championship and cup of the Lviv Oblast (see Lviv Oblast Football Federation) and, thus, obtained the rights to participate in the Soviet Class B championship (Soviet First League). However, in 1963 the Football Federation of USSR conducted another reorganization in football national tournaments creating the Second Group of Class A and Class B became the third tier where a berth was reserved for a team from Lviv. At that time the best city team was SKA Lvov, players of which did not stay there for long leaving it at the end of their military service, while the best would be drafted to CSKA Moscow. In light of that the city administration decided to create independent from military a civilian team.

In December 1962 in the building of Regional Council of trade unions (prospekt Shevchenka) the head of the council and the regional federation Hlib Klymov gathered coaches of Silmash[1] Yuri Zubach (former player of Ukraina Lwów) and Vasyl Solomonko as well as the director of city plant "Lvivsilmash"[2] Ivan Kalynychenko to discuss the new name for a club. The name Silmash was recognized as inadequate for participation on such level. Among variants were Spartak, Dynamo, Halychyna, while at the end they agreed upon the regional toponym (Carpathians) Karpaty which would the best to represent the region.

In the Soviet times all sport teams were "tied" to certain industrial unions or sport societies therefore Karpaty has joined the republican sport society of trade unions "Avanhard", while the Lviv television producing plant "Elektron" became its sponsor. Out of "Silmash" only two joined Karpaty: Ihor Kulchytskyi and Josef Fales. Karpaty also adopted the same jersey colors of Silmash. Also the club was reinforced with several players from SKA Lvov and transfers. The club played its first game on April 14, 1964 against Zenit Izhevsk at the Dynamo Stadium (today – the building of regional Tax Administration) winning it 1–0. The goal was scored by the club's captain Oleksandr Filiayev. The first official game was against Lokomotiv Gomel on April 23, 1963, which Karpaty won 1–0 (goal scored by Anatoliy Kroshchenko).

Karpaty debuted in Group B in 1963 and had remained there for four seasons, until in 1968 they were promoted to Soviet First League.

Winning the USSR CupEdit

 
The banner "The Cup for Lviv!"

On August 17, 1969, Karpaty became the first (and the only) club in the USSR football history which won the USSR Cup while playing in the Soviet First League. The road to the cup was no less exciting as the final itself. On the way there the Lions were challenged by the Soviet heavy-weights such as Ararat Yerevan and Chornomorets Odesa. The quarterfinal round matched them with Trud Foronezh that in the prior round eliminated Spartak Moscow. After the minimal score victory Karpaty were faced with the Mykolaiv's Shipbuilders. The game was perceived by the Lvivians as the chance to avenge for the last year loss to the Mykolaivans, which cost them a ticket to the Soviet Premiers. 2–0 score was enough to secure the trip to Moscow.

In the final, Karpaty played against the Army team from Rostov-on-Don at the Lenin's Stadium. The Rostov army-men were one of the best Soviet clubs in the mid-1960s and for that game they were considered as the favorites being the representatives of the Soviet Top League. Before the start of the game the Karpaty's captain Ihor Kulchytsky traditionally shacked hands with every referee... except the side-liner Eugen Harms. The reason was that the Estonian referee in their last year game against Uralmash Sverdlovsk counted a goal from an obvious offside that eventually contributed to the Karpaty's denial of a promotion. Karpaty were trailing 0–1 already after the first 20 minutes and to the end of the half were not able to equalize, but numerous Karpaty's fans drove their team forward.

The torches are being inflamed on stadium stands. Afar the banner is sparkling: "The Cup for Lviv!" On it the traditional Lviv's lion holds the highest of the national football awards. And now, after the reception of the Cup, the winners are walking around the green field of the Luzhniki...
"Lvivsky Zaliznychnyk", (August 21, 1969)

(Ihor Kulchytsky, "Karpaty's" captain)

In the second half the Ukrainians broke the course of the game flow and two goals from Lykhachov and Bulhakov put the Lions ahead. Near the end of the game the Rostov-men scored another goal, but from offside. The main referee without even looking to his assistants has counted the goal and the Russians ran joyfully towards the center of the field. However a moment later he noticed the Harms' signal. The linesman clearly identified the offside. The Lvivians led the game to the victory.

In the following season, Karpaty's first opponent in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup was Romanian Steaua Bucureşti, that led by István Kovács advanced on 4–3 aggregate.

Soviet Top League (1970–1977)Edit

In 1970–77 and 1980, Karpaty played in the Soviet Top League. Karpaty's best achievement was 4th place in 1976. Karpaty placed 4th twice that year since the season was split into 2 separate championships (spring and fall). Karpaty were primed to take silver that season, but an unexpected loss in the last home game to Zenit Leningrad pushed Karpaty back into 4th place.

While playing in the Soviet First League in 1979, Karpaty were close to repeating their 1969 achievement, when they met Dinamo Moscow in the USSR Cup semi-final. The match which was played in Moscow, went into overtime with a 1–1 score. Dinamo however prevailed, scoring on a penalty kick in extra time.

SKA Karpaty (1981–1989)Edit

In 1981, Karpaty were merged with another Lviv team, SKA Lviv. The new team, SKA Karpaty, continued playing in the Soviet First League, almost achieving promotion in 1986 when CSKA Moscow was promoted ahead of Karpaty on goal differences. In 1989 the original name of the club was restored.

Ukrainian League (1991–present)Edit

Since Ukraine gained its independence, Karpaty have primarily participated in Ukrainian Premier League competitions. They have taken 3rd place once and were Ukrainian Cup runners-up twice, losing both times to Dynamo Kyiv in the final.

The thirteen’s season in Ukrainian Premier League became an unfortunate one for Karpaty and in 2003–04 season the team was relegated to Persha Liha. However Karpaty remained there only for two seasons and in the 2005–06 season, the club was successful in taking second place in the Persha Liha, which allowed them to participate in the Vyscha Liha the following year.

StadiumEdit

Main articles: Ukraina Stadium and Arena Lviv

FC Karpaty play their home games at the Ukraina Stadium. The stadium was built in 1963 as Druzhba (meaning Friendship) stadium and renamed into Ukraina Stadium in 1992. The stadium was renovated on several occasions since, the latest taking place in 2001. Currently the arena has a capacity of 29,004 spectators.

The stadium was also the venue hosting the final match of the first Ukrainian Premier League season in 1992, in which Tavriya Simferopol defeated Dynamo Kyiv.

It has also been one of the venues for Ukraine national football team matches, the most recent being a 1–0 Ukraine win over Belarus on September 6, 2008 for 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

Logo historyEdit

Since the club has been named after the Carpathian Mountains, the image of the forest and mountains has been present on team's logo for many years. However the logo has since been updated, inspired by Lviv's Coat of Arms with a segment of a fortress and lion shown on the new crest. The club's nickname 'The Green Lions' was also derived from their new logo.

The club also has a ceremonial logo, however, it is very rarely used, mostly during TV broadcasts or video packages.

ColoursEdit

Traditionally the club colours are white and green. Throughout the club's history kit has always been designed of green and white tones; other colours are almost never used and are highly criticized by fans.

Green is considered to be the dominant of the two as clubs nicknames are "Green-Lions" and "Green-Whites". For some time black was also used and was even displayed on one of the club's former logos.

RivalriesEdit

Karpaty's biggest rival today is Volyn Lutsk. The match between is called the Galician-Volhynian rivalry which is the main football event in western Ukraine.

Former rivalriesEdit

Karpaty became the longest surviving city's professional football club and over the years participated in Lviv city derbies with SKA Lvov (in 1966-1969) and FC Lviv (in 2008-09 season) (both clubs were dissolved).

In the beginning of the 1990s a rivalry with FC Nyva Ternopil became overshadowed by the rivalry with FC Volyn Lutsk as the Ternopil's club was relegated in 2001.

SupportersEdit

Karpaty Lviv is among the most popular clubs in Ukraine and according to social polls of local polling organizations such as "RATING" and KIIS that were conducted in 2013 claimed that 2.7% to 5.6%[6][7] of all football fans in Ukraine support the club (sharing 3-5 place in the country). The club's supporters in majority represent patriotic to nationalistic including ultra-nationalistic direction in the Ukrainian fans movement.

Just before being appointed a director of the Moscow studio of Deutsche Welle German journalist Markus Reher[8] wrote an article in which he claimed that Ukraine is not ready to hold an event such as 2012 UEFA Euro, because there are too may "nationalist thugs" and neo-Nazis, in particularly the Karpaty club supporters.[9] One supporter claims that supporters of the club "don't start fights" and are "just giving their team support".[9] The supporter went on to say that "everything'll be fine" if supporters of other clubs don't provoke him or other supporters of Karpaty Lviv.[9] If they had foreign players at the club, they would send them back home if they could.[9] The club protects its players from its nationalist fans.[9] Danilo Avelar, a player from Brazil, stated how he "hasn't heard of nationalist fans and hopes it isn't true".[9] However, authorities have had problems in the past with violent fans in Lviv.[9] There was a riot in Lviv's old town when ultranationalist Karpaty supporters clashed with supporters of German side Borussia Dortmund where supporters from both sides were injured.[9] Another British correspondent Manuel Veth who calls the NKVD troops as Soviet anti-terrorist forces also considers the Karpaty Lviv supporters as radical.[10]

The Karpaty Lviv fans are favorite subject of the Russian propaganda media such as Russia Today that is among the leading promoters of the club's supporters.[11][12] In Ukraine the Russian government funded media became notorious for their invention of the "Crucified Boy".

The American journalist Michael Goldfarb pointed out that demonstration of antisemitism and xenophobia among the Karpaty Lviv fans could be politically influenced and is not uncommon in region including similar instances in neighboring Poland.[13]

FC Karpaty Lviv in European competitionsEdit

Karpaty made its debut in European tournaments at the 1970–71 European Cup Winners' Cup, quickly bowing out to FC Steaua Bucureşti. Just four visits to European competition have followed, the most successful being a run to the Group Stage of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League.
