CFR 1907 Cluj

Formed: 1907
Nicknames: CFR-iştii (The Railwaymen)

UEFA club competition honours (runners-up in brackets)
• UEFA Intertoto Cup: (2005)

Domestic honours (most recent triumph in brackets)
• League titles: 2 (2010)
• Romanian Cup: 3 (2010)

• CFR were founded as Kolozsvári Vasutas SC – Cluj Railwaymen SC in Hungarian – while Cluj was still part of the Austro-Hungarian empire; when Transylvania was reintegrated into Romania after World War I, they became CFR – Căile Ferate Române – as they became attached to Romania's state rail company.

• The club played in the second and third tier of the Romanian system for much of their history, winning promotion to the top flight under coach Dr Constantin Rădulescu in 1969 and peaking with a fifth-placed finish in 1973; the club's stadium, which now bears Rădulescu's name, was opened that year with a friendly game between CFR and the Cuban national team.

• Relegated back to the second division in 1976, CFR went into decline; however, the then third division side were given new hope with the arrival of local businessman Árpád Pászkány as their main backer in January 2002.

• Pászkány invested heavily with the aim of bringing CFR back to the top division within four years, and then to title success soon afterwards; as it happened, coach Aurel Sunda guided them back to the Divizia A in  summer 2004.

• League finishes improved year on year – 11th in 2004/05, fifth in 2005/06 and third in 2006/07 – until Ioan Andone led them to a domestic double in 2008, and then to the UEFA Champions League group stage; a second domestic double, completed under Italian Andrea Mandorlini, set them on a similar course for 2010/11.
