FC Obolon Kiev Home Shirt

1 Comment

This is (what I assume to be) the Obolon Kiev home shirt made by Puma. I was surprised the second division team had a store, and I was even more surprised to find that their shirt was, at 345 Ukrainian Gryvna, more expensive than the shirt of a first division team. It is manufactured by Puma with sponsorship from Carling, even though the team is owned by the Obolon Brewery. Whats also interesting is that, given the shade of green and the cross on the badge, this shirt looks more like that of an Irish team than of a Ukrainian team.


Obolon Arena, Kiev, Ukraine – FC Obolon Kiev

The Obolon Arena, stadium of second division side FC Obolon Kiev. The stadium is located in the midst of a multitude of Soviet-era apartment blocks in the outer suburb of Heroiv Dnipra, the last stop on the Kiev Metro line. For a second division side, however, the stadium is very cozy and pretty modern. The “I love you Tanya” was written on the path leading up to the stadium and it made me happy so I included it in this post, even though it doesnt have much to do with football.
