Our Story

Origins

The first official national football tournament was organized in 1909 by the newly founded Romanian Football Federation, then called the Association of Sports Societies in Romania (in Romanian, Asociațiunea Societăților Atletice din România). The final matches of the first Romanian soccer championship were held in Bucharest between December 1909 and January 1910. The three pioneering clubs were ASC Olympia and Colentina AC (both from Bucharest) and United Ploiești. Each team played a match against the other two clubs, totaling a series of three games played, and Olympia București was crowned champion of the first Romanian soccer championship. In the following years, the tournament was structured into regional groups with winners of each group of participants in a second phase, with the final winners declared champions. From 1909 to 1921, the championship was organized as a cup with the winner being crowned champion of Romania, except for between 1916 to 1919, when the competition was suspended due to the First World War. The champions of this period were Olympia București, Colentina București and AS Venus, each with two titles, and United Ploiești, Prahova Ploiești and Româno-Americană București with one title each.

Division A

The 1921-1922 season was the first time that a league consisted of seven teams. The championship, which had been limited to several regional leagues, became a national competition in 1921 with the founding of Divizia A and Divizia B. The inaugural season of Divizia A was won by Chinezul Timișoara. Until the 1931 season -32, the competition was dominated by Chinezul and AS Venus, with Chinezul winning six championships and with Venus București two over the 11 seasons. The 1932-33 season saw the emergence of another successful team, FC Ripensia Timișoara, who along with his rivals the Venus, he won eight of the nine championships before the competition was suspended in 1941 due to World War II.

The post-war years were dominated by CCA Bucharest, FC UTA and FC Petrolul Ploiești. The 1960s saw the gradual emergence of FC Dinamo București, with the help of forwards Gheorghe Ene and Florea Dumitrache, who became some of the best scorers in Romanian football. The 1970s saw the emergence of Dinamo București's Dudu Georgescu, who was Divizia A's top scorer for four seasons between 1974 and 1978. Georgescu scored an impressive 156 goals and won the European Golden Shoe (for the most Europe scorer) twice, in 1975 and 1977. Dinamo București also had two Golden Boot winners: in the 1986-87 season Rodion Cămătaru and in the 1988-89 season Dorin Mateuț, this being the last winner from Romania of this trophy. From the 1959-60 season to the end of the 1999-2000 season all league championships were won by just seven teams: FC FCSB (16 titles), Dinamo București (14 titles), Universitatea Craiova CS (4 titles), Rapid FC, FC Argeș Pitești and FC UTA Arad (2 titles each) and Petrolul Ploiești (one title).

League I

At the beginning of the 2006-07 season the competition was forced to change its name from Divizia A to Liga I due to a trademark dispute over the Divizia A name. On May 15, 2006, the Romanian Football Federation decided to change the name of the First League for League I, which also affected the minor leagues, so that Divizia B became League II, Divizia C became League III, and so on. The 2006-07 season was the 2007th time in a row that a team from Bucharest won the championship, with FC Dinamo Bucure campeónti holding the title.
