Schöner Artikel (in englischer Sprache) über den kürzlich verschiedenen "zweiten" Kyiver Club, "Arsenal", der nach einer nur halbherzigen Übernahme vom neuen Besitzer fallengelassen wurde und aufgrund von Zahlungsunfähigkeit aufgeben musste: Arsenal Kyiv rest in peace:
Last week Arsenal Kyiv withdrew from the Ukrainian Premier League after 13 matches of the current season. Arsenal Kyiv were a fundamental club for many left-wing fans in Ukraine and a club that provided an alternative to the multinational football corporation Dinamo Kyiv.
The announcement of bankruptcy was made by the general director of the club Viktor Golovka on the club’s official homepage. What went wrong? Arsenal had been struggling financially for months; already in April 2013 the club were close to extinction as former owner, oligarch Vadim Rabinovich, lost interest in his plaything and withdrew his funding.
