Vitaliy Danilov was elected as a temporary acting president on May 27, 2008 when top 16 Ukrainian football clubs declared about Ukrainian Premier League launch.
On July 1, 2009, Danilov won the election and became the league president without 'temporary acting' prefix.
But in July 2009, five Premier League clubs: Arsenal (Kyiv), Dynamo (Kyiv), Dnipro (Dnepropetrovsk), Kryvbas (Kryvy Rig), and Metalist (Kharkov) declared that the elections of the League's president were illegal due to procedure infraction. The representatives of the above-mentioned clubs did not recognize Vitaliy Danilov as the president.
To resolve this conflict Vitaliy Danilov initiated in September 2009 re-election of the League's president and on December 1, 2009, won the election again with 11 clubs voted for his candidature, 3 (Arsenal, Dynamo, Metalist) – against, 1 (Kryvbas) abstain, and 1 (FC Dnipro) – absent. This time most presidents of the Premier League of Ukraine acknowledged Vitaliy Danilov legality.
