HistoryEdit

The club was established in 1992 as an amateur team that won the Lviv Oblast Cup and Championship. The idea about a new city's club was initiated by a Ukrainian coach Mykhailo Vilkhovyi. In 1993 the club entered the Ukrainian Transitional League and in two seasons progressed two tiers reaching the Ukrainian First League where it stayed until 2001. It was one of three teams that were admitted to the 1993–94 Ukrainian Transitional League and did not play in the previous 1992–93 Ukrainian Football Amateur League.

In 2001 the club was dissolved and merged with FC Karpaty Lviv as its second team.

This club held a record for being the only team from outside the Ukrainian Premier League that has progressed twice to the quarterfinals of the Ukrainian Cup competition.
