FCSB (Romanian pronunciation: [fet͡ʃeseˌbe]), formerly short for Fotbal Club Steaua București (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈste̯awa bukuˈreʃtʲ]) and sometimes colloquially known as simply Steaua, is a Romanian professional football club based in Bucharest. Founded in 1947 as Asociația Sportivă a Armatei București, it has spent its complete history in the Liga I, the top tier of the Romanian football league system.

The team was initially part of the CSA Steaua București sports club and belonged to the Romanian Army, however it separated in 1998. The Army sued the football club in 2011 and has since been in a conflict regarding the ownership of the Steaua brand, which resulted in the change of the name to the acronym FCSB in early 2017. Domestically, Roș-albaștrii have won Liga I 26 times, Cupa României 22 times, Cupa Ligii 2 times and Supercupa României 6 times – all competition records. Internationally, they have won the European Cup and European Super Cup, both in 1986. They reached the European Cup final once again in 1989, when they were defeated by A.C. Milan. Throughout its history, Steaua also played the final of the Intercontinental Cup, the quarter-finals of the European Cup Winners' Cup and the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup.

Their home ground is Arena Națională, having moved here from the Ministry of National Defence-owned Stadionul Ghencea. Initially, the club played in the colours of the Romanian tricolour – blue, yellow and red – but yellow soon lost its importance and the team became associated with the red and blue colours. Recently, some away kits have begun reintegrating the yellow colour.

The club has a long-standing rivalry with neighbouring Dinamo București, with matches between the two being commonly referred to as "the Eternal Derby" or "the Romanian Derby".


Fotbal Club UTA Arad (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈuta aˈrad]), commonly known as UTA Arad, or simply as UTA, is a Romanian professional football club based in the city of Arad, Arad County, currently playing in Liga II. UTA stands for Uzina Textilă Arad.

Founded in 1945 as IT Arad, they have won the national title six times and the national cup twice. Domestically, along with Chinezul Timișoara, UTA can be considered one of the most successful Romanian clubs of the 20th century, with only three teams winning more championships during that period, Steaua, Dinamo and Venus, all from Bucharest.

After a decline which started in 1979 with a relegation to the second league, in 2014 the team was dissolved. With the support of fans, a new team started its way back from Liga IV, the fourth level of Romanian league system, and is credited as the official successor of the defunct club."The Old Lady" plays in red and white kits at the Motorul Stadium, as their traditional home ground, Francisc von Neuman, is currently under reconstruction.
