FC Dnipro Cherkasy (Ukrainian: ФК Дніпро Черкаси) was a Ukrainian football team, based in Cherkasy. The club has been succeeded by phoenix club FC Cherkaskyi Dnipro.


History overview

The club was established on 9 May 1955, the 10th anniversary Victory Day. The team kept its professional status for 44 years since acquiring it in 1958 and reacqiured it in 2003 after the short term disruption for the 2002/03 season. Dnipro initially was established as Burevistnyk (Thunderbird) and then renamed Kolhospnyk (Collective Farmer) in 1957. 10 years later, in 1967, the club was renamed to its current name of Dnipro. The club's name was changed again a couple more times (Granite 1973–1974 and Cherkasy 1997–2004), but nonetheless it always returns to its favorite – Dnipro.

After 2 seasons in the Persha Liha Dnipro were relegated to Druha Liha after finishing 18th (out of 20) in the 2007/08 season.

The club was expelled from the PFL in the second half of the 2008–09 season due to failing to arrive to a scheduled fixture for the second time.

In 2010 a phoenix club FC Cherkaskyi Dnipro was established.


The club's main ground is Central Stadium, which was constructed in 1957 and currently holds over 10,000 spectators. The ground has been reconstructed on several occasions.


Traditionally the club colours are white, red and blue.
