Victoria Brăneşti was a Romanian professional football club from Brăneşti, Ilfov County, Romania, founded in 1968 and dissolved in 2012


The football team was founded in 1968 by football-loving people from the Brăneşti commune and played its entire history in the lower leagues of the Romanian football system.

The ascension of the club practically began in 2007 after the premiere promotion to the Liga III.

After a first season in which Victoria's objective was to avoid relegation, and succeeded, finishing 8th, came the 2008–09 season where at the end the team celebrated a historic promotion to the Liga II.

Like any new promoted team, the objective for the 2009–10 season was to finish as high in the table as possible.

The club exceeded all expectations by finishing 1st in the series, and promoted for the very first time in history to the Liga I. This was a fantastic performance, the club succeeding, in only four years, to ascend from the Liga IV to the Liga I. It was the first Romanian club that achieved this performance. In 2013 Corona Brașov managed to achieve the same performance.

Brăneşti became the smallest locality to have ever played in the Liga I, with only 8,531 inhabitants, beating the previous record which belonged to Scorniceşti.[2]

They relegated after only one season and that meant the end of the team. They managed to start the 2011-12 season in the Liga II, but after 15 rounds the team was second to last. In February 2012, the team was disaffiliated by the Federation, due to financial problems.[3]


Victoria played its home matches on the Cătălin Hîldan Stadium, which has a capacity of 2,500 seats.

The Liga I matches were played on the Municipal Stadium in Buzău and the Concordia Stadium in Chiajna, because theirs did not meet the requirements for the first division.
