The Football Club Without A Country: The Story of Sheriff Tiraspol

  • Publisert Måned siden

    HITC Sevens

    Runtime: 12:49

    The Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, better known as Transnistria, is an unrecognised, breakaway former Soviet state located between Ukraine and Moldova.
    Whilst Transnistria, as it is better known, has struggled due it's lack of international recognition, the regions most successful football club, Sheriff Tiraspol, have flourished, winning 18 out of the last 20 Moldovan National Division league titles, and qualifying repeatedly for the Champions League and the Europa League.
    In this short documentary, HITC Sevens takes a look at the story of Sheriff Tiraspol, the unrecognised nation of Transnistria, and what the future for the region may hold.

One random non-football-related fact about Moldova and Transnistria: Sergey Stepanov, a member of SunStroke Project representing Moldova at the Eurovision Song Contest twice and known on the internet as the Ultra Sax Guy, is from Tiraspol.

OH MAN A TRANSNISTRIA VIDEO?! Alfie, you spoil us who love your history videos! GET IN MY BELLY. The other comment is right about getting the timelines a bit mixed up (at the pace you put out videos, that'll happen!): The land that forms Transnistria was annexed into the Russian Empire by 1793 and the events of the start of the history of the region are those of greater Bessarabia - Transnistria was not part of the land that moved back and forth. Ah, well! Any work going on a second book??

‘The man who overthrew the Tsar’..... Lenin and the Bolsheviks did not overthrow the Tsar who was overthrown by the February Revolution of 1917 a spontaneous uprising of the Russian People brought on by catastrophic military defeat and concomitant economic disaster. This established the Revolutionary Provisional Government which was then overthrown by Lenin and the Bolsheviks in the October of the same year.

2:26 That's the history of Basarabia, not of Transnistria. Transnistria was never part of Moldova or Romania. The Soviets created a Moldavian Soviet Republic in Transnistria, as an alternative to Romanian Bassarabia. When they occupied Bassarabia, they incorporated it into that Soviet Republic.

Robert O’Connor’s book ‘Blood and Circuses’ writes a great chapter on Transnistria. The source of the Sheriff corporation’s vast wealth is interesting and dubious too: essentially largely from the contraband market, which Ukraine has recently taken steps to stop by tightening its borders because a lot of cheap goods were smuggled into Transnistria via Odesa port in Ukraine. Moldova’s quite a corrupt society too; the poorest country in Europe I believe

Great video again Alfie. I was watching one of your Ligue 1 videos, and wondered why the French league isn’t as strong as the 4 top leagues above it? With France’s international success and size of the country, it might be surprising its league isn’t as strong as its rivals?

You kind of mixed up your history a bit from 2:25 to 3:25. What was described there was the history of Bessarabia (present day Republic of Moldavia) without Transnistria. Until the 1940's, Transnistria was never ever a part of either Romania, nor what is today known as the Republic of Moldova, nor of Greater Moldova from the Middle Ages. To put it shortly, this region was annexed by Romania in WW2 following the invasion of the Soviet Union (and it was a much bigger Transnistria also, not just a meager strip of land). After the Axis Defeat, the region was reduced to it's current borders and it became part of the Moldavian SSR at Stalin's orders, which has remained the same ever since. Anyway, keep up the good work, it was a great video nonetheless and hopefully you will do more material involving East European football history.
