Football Club Dnipro is a Ukrainian professional football club based in Dnipro.
"Dnipro", named after the Dnieper river in Ukraine, is the name taken by a range of sports clubs in its city. Besides the association football club, there are also bandy and basketball teams, among others, with the same name. FC Dnipro, however, is not a multi-sports club. The club is owned by the Privat Group that also owns BC Dnipro and Budivelnyk Kyiv.
During the Soviet era, the club was a member of the Soviet Volunteer Sports Society "Metallurg" and until 1961 was under sponsorship of the Petrovsky Dnipropetrovsk Metallurgical Plant. After that, the club was sponsored by the Southern Machine-building Plant Yuzhmash and carried both names Russian Dnepr and Ukrainian Dnipro, while Dnepr was also used for international competitions. During the Soviet era, the club was the second most successful club, based in Ukraine, that participated in the Soviet Top League, winning in 1983 and 1988. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the club was privatized.
