History
• Founded as the works side of a local train factory, KhPZ (Kharkovski Parovozostroitelni Zavod – Kharkiv Train Factory) featured in the inaugural USSR Cup in 1938 before starting life in the third tier of the Soviet league under the name FC Traktor in 1946.

• Renamed FC Dzerzhvnets in honour of Felix Dzerzhinsky, founder of the Soviet secret police, they played in the second division from 1947-49; as FC Avangard they advanced to the Soviet top division for the 1960 season, finishing sixth under coach Olexandr Ponomariov in 1961 before being relegated two years later.

• They returned to the top tier in 1981 as Metalist – the name means 'metalworker' – under Yevgen Lemeshko, and while they lost to FC Shakhtar Donetsk in the 1983 USSR Cup final, they won their only major honour by beating FC Torpedo Moskva in the 1988 edition.

• Founder members of the Ukrainian league in spring 1992, their fortunes declined with relegation in 1993/94, and they were out of the top tier for four years before returning for the 1998/99 campaign, with new investors steadying the ship.

• Myron Markevich's side had finished third in Ukraine for six successive seasons until they went one better and ended the 2012/13 campaign as runners-up to FC Shakhtar Donetsk, thus qualifying for the UEFA Champions League for the first time. In 2008/09 and 2011/12 they reached the last 16 of the UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League.
