HistoryEdit

Shakhtar Sverdlovsk was founded in 1939.[2] The club represents State Mining Company "Sverdlovantratsyt" (Sverdlov Anthracite).

After Ukrainian independence, the club competed in the Luhansk Oblast football competition. They performed well and decided to enter the professional ranks in 1995. This proved disastrous as the harsh economic conditions of the time took a toll and the club's administration decided that in the best interests of the club that they return to competing in the oblast league.

Between 1996 and 2006, while competing in the Luhansk Oblast league they won their 6th oblast championship. This improvement and an era of stability within the club gave them renewed interest in improving their classification level. After winning the Ukrainian Amateur Cup (Fourth level of Football in Ukraine) in 2006,[3] the club decided to return to the professional ranks. Shakhtar Sverdlovsk was admitted to the Ukrainian Second League for the 2007–08 season.
