Former owner and president of metalhead Alexander Yaroslavsky announced his desire and intention to revive the Kharkiv club.
In an open letter, addressed to the performance. the mayor of Kharkov Terekhov, the secretary of the Kharkov city council Tymchuk and the chairman of the Kharkov region Tovmasyan Yaroslavsky offered literally the following.
“Our hometown Kharkiv and our hometown of Kharkiv have a rich cultural heritage worthy of careful preservation. Among the achievements of the Kharkiv community inscribed in golden letters in the history of the region are the victories and the titles of the Metalist football club.
Seven bronze and “silver” medals from the national championship, the European Cup matches and the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League, a beautiful stadium for Euro 2012 and a children’s football academy, and the most important, the national love and pride of the citizens of Kharkiv: all this is “Metalista”.
2025 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the legendary Kharkov club. As patriots of Kharkov and the Kharkov region, it is our duty to celebrate this anniversary with dignity.
But so far only one name of this glorious “Metalista” remains and the infrastructure created for Euro 2012 becomes unusable.
Therefore, I invite all compatriots, fans with a warm heart, local authorities interested in the development of the region, to unite and revive the true heroic metalhead.
For my part, I promise to make every effort to return to its former glory.
“Yellow-blue” is the strongest, “says Yaroslavsky’s appeal.
