Dynamo Kyiv has not missed a single season of continental competitions since 1990 and missed only twice since 1973.

Dynamo's status as the country's principal club did not change, however, as they went on to dominate domestic competitions, winning or being runner-up in every year of the Premier League's existence and becoming a fixture in the UEFA Champions League. Its main rival in Ukraine is Shakhtar Donetsk, a team from the Donbas region, that came second to Dynamo several times before winning its first Premier League in 2002. The matches between these two sides are called the Ukrainian derby.

The late 90’s, however, saw the Nyvky training ground as one not meeting modern technical and facilities requirements. To provide the youngsters with efficient and thorough training and education, the club management came to a decision to build a new European-level school.

The story inspired three films: the 1961 Hungarian film drama Two Half Times in Hell, the 1981 American film Escape to Victory and the 2012 Russian film Match.

The propaganda story is often told of how the Dynamo team, playing as "Start, City of Kiev All-Stars", was executed by a firing squad in the summer of 1942 for defeating an All-Star team from the German armed forces by 5–1. The actual story, as recounted by Y. Kuznetsov, is considerably more complex. Still, this match has subsequently become known in the Soviet media as "The Death Match".

Several players have won individual awards during or for their time with Dynamo Kyiv

In a season which contained their record win, a 9–0 victory over FC Illichivets Mariupol, the club only managed to finish runners-up in the league in 2010–11, after FC Shakhtar Donetsk.[2] In what would be icon Andriy Shevchenko's final season at the club, Dynamo also finished as runners-up in 2011–12.[3]

FC Dynamo Kyiv goalkeeper Olexandr Rybka has shared his impressions of the game against FC Oleksandria:

Since then, the whole generations of far-famed club players got their football education under the careful guidance of proficient seasoned coaches in the children sports club. “The Dynamo Kyiv epoch” was securely and for centuries fixed in the national football by Volodymyr Muntyan, Oleh Blokhin, Oleksiy Mykhaylychenko. And with the new pages turned in the Ukrainian soccer history, the baton was passed over to Oleksandr Shovkovskiy, Serhiy Fedorov and great Andriy Shevchenko.

They learn to play their favourite game on one grass and one synthetic standard-sized, electrically-heated pitches. The audience can watch them play from a 300-seater roofed grandstand. Also, youngsters can warm up and train on the cinder hockey-sized grounds. All the pitches are equipped with a modern illumination system and fully meet international requirements.

Before 1936 FC Dynamo Kyiv players participated in the Championship of the Ukrainian SSR as part of consolidated football team of Kiev city.


In 1936 the first Soviet Championship was played, and Dynamo Kyiv was one of the pioneers of the newly formed league. The club's early successes were however limited to a 2nd-place finish in 1936 and 3rd place in 1937. In the 1941 season, the club only played 9 matches, as World War II interrupted league play.

Football Club Dynamo Kyiv (Ukrainian: Футбольний клуб «Дина́мо» [dɪˈnɑmo ˈkɪjiw]) is a Ukrainian professional football club based in Kyiv. Founded in 1927 as part of the Soviet Dynamo Sports Society, the club plays in the Ukrainian Premier League, and has never been relegated to a lower division. Their home is the 70,050 capacity Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex.

The next match played by Dynamo was on July 17, 1928 against another Dynamo from the port city of Odessa. As the club gained more experience and played on a regular basis, it started to fill the stadium with spectators with both the club and football in general gaining popularity in Soviet Ukraine.
