INFORMATION: FC Chornomorets Odesa is a Ukrainian professional football club from the city of Odesa. The club's home ground is the 34,164 Chornomorets Stadium opened in 1935 and rebuilt in 2011. During the reconstruction (2009-2011), the team played in the 4,610 Spartak Stadium. The club was officially formed in 1936 as Dynamo, but after a number of name and management changes, it emerged under its current name in 1958. Chornomorets were deducted 6 points by FIFA on November 6, 2008. It was confirmed by Ukrainian Premier League on March 2, 2009. The club managed to finish the 2008–09 season in 10th place despite the deduction. The 2009–10 season started badly with a 5:0 loss to FC Dynamo Kyiv and a poor run of form that saw the team finish the first half of the season in 13th place, just two spots away from the relegation zone. The club was relegated to the First League at the end of the season. It took, however, just a year for Chornomorets to return to the Ukrainian top flight for the 2011–12 season.
