Prior to the formation of the Professional Hockey League (PHL), the Ice Hockey Federation of Ukraine (FHU) administered and handed out the award, allowing both amateur and professional teams to compete in an annual regular season, then playoff for the title. On July 25, 2011, the FHU transferred the rights of the event to the PHL. [3]

In 2011–12, the championship was awarded in the PHL following a 4-team playoff at the end of the 41-game regular season. The finals were determined though a best-of-seven playoff. [4] Teams that miss the finals participate in a best-of-five playoff to determine final positioning. In addition to the title, the winning team was given a cash prize by the league, US$1,000,000, shared by all of the players. [5] National finalists receive silver and bronze medals. [5]
