The Ukrainian Premier League is the highest division of football in Ukraine. It was created in 1991 as Ukraine declared independence from the Soviet Union. Twelve teams play each other twice in a 22 match regular season to create a league table. The table then splits in half resulting in a Championship round and a Relegation round, each playing ten more fixtures.
