HistoryEdit

Over the years there were several clubs connected with Skala Stryi starting from 1911.

USC Skala Stryi (USC Sich Stryi)Edit

Starting from around 1910 there started to appear number of football teams in the city of Stryi: Pogon (Polish), Hakoah (Jewish), Sich (Ukrainian). Sich that was created in 1911 was the predecessor of Skala. The president of Sich became well known Ukrainian composer Ostap Nyzhankivsky. Due to the fact that name Sich can be very politically offensive towards Polish nationals, the name was changed to Skala in 1912 as USC Skala. As a word Skala is an obsolete form of another word Skelia and it is also used in the Russian language. However soon after 1912 the club disappeared. Some players joined the SSC Pogon Stryj, others discontinued to play football. During the World War I there was no sport life in Stryi. During the Ukrainian-Polish War, Poles killed Ostap Nyzhankivsky in 1919.

In 1922 the football team Skala Stryi was revived as a section of the Gymnastic Association Sokil. Sokil was a member of the Ukrainian Sports Union which however refused to cooperate with the Polish authorities therefore the Ukrainian teams were banned from the Polish competitions. In 1925 Skala Stryi became an independent organization and a member of the Ukrainian Sports Union. Starting from 1928 the Ukrainian football clubs started to join the Lviv District Football Union. The first team that joined the union was the Sports Association Ukraine. In 1931 Skala also followed that example. In 1933 however the club left the Lviv District Football Union and returned to the Ukrainian Sports Union. In 1936 Skala once again joined the Polish Football Federation. There was created the new Stanislawow District Football Union and all clubs from Stryi were initially transferred to it. However due to difficult transportation communications with the rest of the Stanislawow Voivodeship, the city clubs petitioned to stay with the Lviv District Football Union.[citation needed]

FC Skala Stryi (FC Karpaty Kamianka-Buzka)Edit

The football club Skala was revived in 1989 with some support from public and the Stryi city sports committee headed by Vasyl Kokhanchyk as well as part of the drive for the Ukrainian national revival (so called "National Revival Wave").[1] The first president became Volodymyr Buriy who was assisted by Mykola Zelinsky (associated with FC Medyk Morshyn).[2] In the beginning the newly created club entered its team into the Lviv Oblast Second League (2nd tier).[1]

In 1991, FC Karpaty Kamianka-Buzka moved to Stryi before the independent championship started in Ukraine and changed its name to FC Skala Stryi. That club had participated in the Ukrainian championship since 1992 starting in the Persha Liha Group A. They continued to compete at that level until the end of the 1996/97 season when the club dissolved.

FC Hazovyk-Skala Stryi (FC Hazovyk Komarno)Edit

Later in 2001 the city of Stryi received a new team that relocated from Komarno, FC Hazovyk Komarno. The club was reorganized once again when its main football team relocated to Stryi.[3] It was renamed as Hazovyk-Khurtovyna adding a name of the former Ukrainian club that existed in Komarno prior to the Soviet invasion of Halychyna in 1939. In 2004 this team under the name of FC Hazovyk-Skala Stryi won the Druha Liha Group A championship and was promoted to the Ukrainian First League. Then the team became financially distressed after the 2005/06 season and was bought by the Ukrainian insurance company "Kniazha". They moved again and now to Lviv changing its name to FC Lviv. [1]
