FC Steaua București

Fotbal Club Steaua București is a Romanian professional football club based in Bucharest. They are the most successful Romanian football team in European competitions as well in the Romanian Liga I (23 championship wins). They became the first East European team to win the European Cup, being victorious in the 1986 European Cup final. They played again in the final of the 1988/1989 European Cup.

The club is historically known as the Romanian Army sports club. The football department separated, however, in 1998. At the moment, its only direct link to the Army is their home ground, Stadionul Ghencea, property of the Ministry of National Defence.

Steaua has spent all its history in the country's top-flight league, and has finished below the sixth spot for only five times. They have finished third in the last season. Initially, the club played in the colors of the Romanian tricolor - blue, yellow and red - but yellow soon lost its importance, and the team became associated with the red and blue colors. Recently, away kits have begun to reintegrate the yellow color.
