Soon after its founding in 1927, FC Dynamo Kyiv started competing in what used to be called the Championship of the Ukrainian SSR, winning the title twice before WWII broke out. During the war and Ukraine's occupation by the Nazis, many Dynamo players joined a team under the name Start, and played a series of matches against teams that consisted of German soldiers, and others coming from countries that were Germany's allies.[2]
