Current Squad



Key players from current squad: Ciprian Tatarusanu (GK), Iasmin Latovlevici (LB), Vlad Chiriches (CB), Alexandru Bourceanu (CDM), Cristian Tanase (LW,RW,CAM), Alexandru Chipciu (LW,RW,CAM)

Full name: Fotbal Club Steaua București
Nickname(s): Roș-Albaștrii (The Red and Blues)
Militarii (The Army Men)
Viteziștii (The Speedsters)
Short name: Steaua
Founded: 7 June 1947 (66 years ago)
as Asociația Sportivă a Armatei București
Ground: Arena Națională (55,600 seats) / Ghencea (27,577 seats)
Owner: George Becali
President: Helmuth Duckadam
General Manager: Mihai Stoica
Coach: Laurențiu Reghecampf

They are the most successful Romanian football team in European competitions as well in the Romanian Liga I (24 championship wins). They became the first East European team to win the European Cup, being victorious in the 1986 European Cup final. Steaua 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 first in this 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.

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

Stadium:
Steaua played its three first matches in history at the defunct Venus stadium. Opened in 1931, the venue had previously been in the property of Venus București, a club disbanded in 1949. After the ground's demolition through order of the Communist regime, Steaua had played its home matches on either three of Bucharest's largest multi-use stadia, ANEF, Republicii (built in 1926 and put down in 1984 to make room for the erection of the Casa Poporului) and 23 August (built in 1953).

Of these two, 23 August (current Național) was mostly used when two matches between Bucharest clubs were scheduled in the same matchday or for important European matches, while Republicii for regular matches inside the championship.

Steaua plays its home matches at the Stadionul Ghencea, a football stadium situated in South-Western Bucharest. Part of Complexul Sportiv Steaua, it was inaugurated on 9 April 1974 when Steaua played a friendly match against OFK Beograd, at which time it was the first football-only stadium ever built in Communist Romania, with no track and field facilities.

The original capacity was 30,000 on benches. A general renovation occurred in 1991. This included installing seats, which dropped the capacity to 28,139, inaugurating a floodlighting system and erecting a VIP personal box section.

After a second renovation, in 2006, which included refurbishing the turf, Ghencea was able to host UEFA Champions League events, being a third category arena according to the UEFA classification system. Lately, there have been talks for increasing the capacity to either 45,000 or 60,000.
Romania was also a tenant.

The first game played by the national team at Ghencea was in March 1977 against Turkey. 59 other games have been played ever since, the last one occurring in October 2006 against Belarus. Also, several matches from the 1998 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, including the final, have been hosted by the arena.

The stadium, built through order of the Ministry of National Defence inside a former military base and was long used by CSA Steaua.

From 2011, Steaua have played the European games and its most important internal games on the newly constructed Arena Națională.

We have the most important match of the season tomorrow, against Legia, in UCL Play-off.

First round result: Steaua 1-1 Legia

But we dominated and only bad luck made us to not score more goals. I think we will win at two goals difference, at least, because this is the real difference between Steaua and Legia and we deserve to go in the group stage.
Forta STEAUA BUCURESTI!

What do you want to know more precisely?

I created a thread in the general section where I described Chiriches and I shared a youtube link with some of his best moments.

Don't just copy-paste from Wiki. We prefer the insights and emotions of people who are attached with the club. That what makes this forum so vibrant and informative.

@lol I feel like I wasted my time with this.

I agree with you; but I wasn't home when I created the thread and I was using a mini Ipad; honestly, I didn't have enough time to write the info myself, so I copied the info from Wiki because I wanted to make the thread look decent in a short time.

I will write more in the next days.

I hope that Wesley Lopes will come at Steaua, even if he is an expensive player.
We need him.

FC Vaslui: Celeban, Varela;
Otelul Galati or "Gulati" Laughing: Neagu, Iorga;
Petrolul: Guilherme;
Free: Wesley Lopes;
CFR Cluj: Batin, Kapetanos;
Molde: Daniel Chima;
Clermont: Dembele.

I want:
Chima - we really need a striker;
Guilherme - he's much better than Latovlevici on the defense side;
Celeban - we have good central defenders, but not enough;
Wesley Lopes - despite age he's fast in thinking and we need players like him for group stages.

What do you think?

We desperately need a striker but, how good is this Chima? Is he better than Kapetanos? What style of play does he prefer?

Latovlevici and Guilherme could rotate this season because we will have a lot of difficult games to play...yet, Latovlevici brings a plus in the offensive phase, but not only a plus; he is one of the most important players in our attacks. He is very creative, calm, confident with the ball...everything you want from a fullback. Unfortunately, defensively speaking he lacks concentration in important moments and sometimes he treats superficially the opponents.

Celeban would be a good acquisition for the squad depth.

Wesley Proud

Chima played and scored against Steaua in the last EL season in the group stages.
He's faster and better at teamplay than Kapetanos, but he may lose at experience and demarcation against him.

Now I remember him. Chima is a very good player, definitely a better talent than Kapetanos. Honestly, I was impressed by his performance against Steaua, especially in the away game. His movements are so quick...

Buy him Gigi Proud !

These are bad news. I heard that Dembele has same style with Chima.
We really need a good and fast striker, it's imperious. I would give up other acquisitions for a player like Chima.

Yeah, sources of Digisport TV said that it is more than sure that Chima rejected Steaua Sad .

I started to hope that we'll sign him.

However, I heard that Wesley will probably end up in our squad.

After Mourinho signed with Chelsea, he said:
"Europa League is like that: First, you win it. Why win it? You won it because you lost the second place in the group stages of UCL. The second reason: In UCL, you are not playing with teams like Steaua Bucharest."

I think he deservs a lesson in Bucharest.

Finally, a Steaua fan on the forums. cheers 

I'm surprised Tanase and Gardos are still in the club. Chiriches is finally getting the attention he deserves, IMO.

Reghecampf knows how to keep the players at the club. He motivates them very well.

But we (me, Ciprian, Ion Creanga) are all Steaua fans.

Do you regularly watch Steaua? How do you know about Tanase and Gardos? hmm

I hope that you will post more often in this thread. Wink
