About FC Arsenal Kyiv

FC Arsenal Kyiv is a professional football club from the Ukrainian capital of Kiev. In the 1950s, a different club under the same name Arsenal Kyiv won the 1958 Ukrainian SSR Championship. However in 1963 the club was renamed to ''Temp Kyiv''. In 1964 the club was replaced by Dynamo-2 Kyiv in the Soviet Second League. The origin of the current Arsenal club is disputed; some consider it to be part of the CSKA Kyiv heritage, another of FC Boryspil. In 1994 CSKA merged with FC Boryspil under the name CSKA-Borysfen Boryspil. After a series of successful seasons the club made its way from the Ukrainian Third League to the Ukrainian Premier League. The club has continuously competed in the top flight since the 1995-96 season.
