FC Zorya Luhansk: A story of war, financial destitution, and absolute fighting spirit.

“Perhaps it’s an understatement to say that Zorya is the pinnacle of underdogs in European football.”

The Donbas region of Ukraine is situated in the Far East and is often portrayed as the last frontier of Europe in both a literal and symbolic sense. Luhansk is a city located in the Donbas region where the coal-and-steel industrial center is filled with dark and dangerous coal waste dumps. The word Zorya means “dawn” in Ukrainian and is a figurative representation of what the club is becoming. Far from the heart of Europe, very little is known about the team known as Muzhyky , which translates into The Men in Ukrainian – a team built on labor, hard work, and stable values.
