FC Hirnyk Kryvyi Rih (Ukrainian: Гірник Кривий Ріг) is a professional Ukrainian football club based in Kryvyi Rih. The club currently competes in the Ukrainian First League.


It is part of the Sports Club Hirnyk which combines several other sections. The club's owner is the Kryvyi Rih Iron Ore Works (KZRK), the biggest subterranean iron mining company in Ukraine. KZRK traces its origin from the Soviet industrial giant "Kryvbas Ruda" (1973–1998). The club was created in 1998 as FC Batkivshchyna Kryvyi Rih, but it traces its history to 1925 as FC Karl Liebknecht Quarry.

The modern football club currently competes in the Ukrainian First League and was formed in 2001. After finishing 3rd in the Ukrainian Amateur Championships in 2003 the club's administration decided to enter the professional leagues.

The club plays their games at either "Shakhta Zhovtneva" or "Budivelnyk" Stadiums.

The club was promoted to the Ukrainian First League after finishing 4th in 2014.
