About the Ukrainian Premier League
The Ukrainian Premier League is the Ukraine’s top flight football competition. Founded in 2008 it includes the 14 top soccer teams based in Ukraine. Although the Premier League has the same season schedule as many other European professional leagues, starting mid-July and ending mid-June, the winter break is significantly longer (three months) due to the harsh winter conditions.
