The 1st football match in Ukraine


The first football game in Ukrainian history took place on July 14th, 1894.

In 1894, a British-style stadium composed of a football field and 7,000 seats was completed on the territory of present-day Stryisky Park. On July 14th, 1894, an important event in the history of Ukrainian football occurred in the same stadium – the first football game was played between the Lviv and Krakow municipal teams of Sokil association. The newspaper, “Gazeta Lwowska” reported that the Lviv players wore grey gym shorts and white sport shirts, whereas the footballers from Krakow played in blue shorts and white sport shirts. Volodymyr Khomytsky, a student at the Lviv Pedagogical University, scored a goal in the sixth minute of the game.
