1992 Vyshcha Liha was the first football championship organized in Ukraine after the dissolution of the Soviet Union and officially recognized by the UEFA. The last Soviet season finished in fall of 1991 and all Soviet competitions results were awarded to Russia. In order to compete in the European competitions, Ukraine had to come with its own league and cup winner that would be recognized by the UEFA.

Contents

The Football Federation of Ukraine when organizing the competition decided to shift its calendar to synchronize it with one common in Europe "fall-spring" and organized a short championship.

Note, that while Ukrainian championships were taken place in the Soviet Union since 1920s, they are not yet officially recognized neither by Football Federation of Ukraine nor the rest international community.

Calendar

The championship started on March 6, about a month later after the qualification rounds of another national tournament, the first edition of Ukrainian Cup. The first half of the season was scheduled to finish on April 19 with the second one to resume on April 25 (6 days intermission). The last round was to be played on June 17.

Considering such a schedule and the fact that the Ukrainian Cup competition was on the way simultaneously, the Ukrainian clubs had to forfeit their scheduled games in the Soviet Cup competition. In addition to that Dynamo Kyiv also participated in the Champions League competition which ended for Dynamo only on April 15. Each team this season had at least two games scheduled every week on average. Considering other official games FC Torpedo Zaporizhia and FC Dynamo Kyiv has played the record of 26 games from February 18 through June 21 and the most among the other clubs in the League.
