History
• Founded in June 1947 as one of seven sections of ASA Bucureşti – the Romanian army sports association – Steaua took their current name (literally 'star') in 1961, having been CSCA (central sports club of the army) and CCA (central house of the army) at various stages during the 1950s.

• The Army Men were the most successful side in Romania in their early years, taking their first title in 1951 having won their first Romanian Cup in 1948/49; they competed in the European Cup for the first time in 1957/58, losing to Borussia Dortmund after a replay in their opening tie.

• Cup specialists in the 1960s and 70s, Steaua endured a barren spell at the turn of the 1980s but were revived spectacularly under coaches Emerich Jenei and Anghel Iordănescu. A team featuring the likes of Helmuth Duckadam, Miodrag Belodedici, Marius Lăcătuş and Gavril Balinţ lifted the 1984/85 Romanian championship and then the European Cup the next season, beating FC Barcelona 2-0 on penalties in the final following a 0-0 draw in Seville.

• With attacking midfielder Gheorghe Hagi joining that great squad soon after, Steaua dominated the Romanian scene in the following years, going 104 league games unbeaten from June 1986 to September 1989 and reaching another European Cup final, succumbing 4-0 to AC Milan in 1989.

• Steaua recovered after the 1989 revolution had prompted the departure of many top players, and while they formally severed their ties with the army in 1998, their tradition as Romania's most popular and successful club has continued.
