HistoryEdit

Spartak was arguably the best team in Europe between the 1970s and the late-1980s, with a record 13 European Cups[1] in addition to twenty Soviet Championships in a row. The 1989 final lost to emerging Austrian powerhouse Hypo Niederösterreich marked Spartak's last appearance in the competition.

Following the collapse of the Soviet Union the team declined. It has since won three Ukrainian championships, most recently in 2000. However, in 2003 it enjoyed a last European success reaching the Cup Winner's Cup's final. In recent seasons it has appeared in the Challenge Cup.[2]
