History

The club was established in 1914 in the old neighborhood of Venus, Bucharest. The team played at the Venus stadium that opened in 1931. It had a capacity of 15,000 spectators and it became the first stadium in Romania to host a match under floodlights in 1935.

The club won 8 national titles which came in 1920, 1921, 1929, 1932, 1934, 1937, 1939 and finally in 1940. It never managed to win the Romanian Cup having been beaten by local rivals Rapid Bucureşti in the final in 1940 as well as losing to the same opponents in the semifinals in 1937, 1938, 1939, 1941 and 1942.

The club also took part in three editions of the Mitropa Cup:

  • 1937 - Last 16: Venus Bucureşti 4-6 Ujpest; Ujpest 4-1 Venus Bucureşti
  • 1939 - Quarterfinals: Venus Bucureşti 1-0 Bologna; Bologna 5-0 Venus Bucureşti
  • 1940 - Quarterfinals: Beogradski SK 3-0 Venus Bucureşti; Venus Bucureşti 0-1 Beogradski SK

In 1948, due to communist regime norms that stated that all sport associations had to join a trade-union or a governmental institution, the team was forced to merge with "UCB" ("Uzinele Comunale Bucureşti" - Administration of Sewerage Systems). In 1949 the league was dissolved and the team disbanded.

In 2014 the team was reestablished and competed in Liga IV, Bucharest, fourth tier of the Romanian football, finishing 7th in Seria II.[1]

Stadium

The club plays its home matches on Stadionul Biruinţa in Bucharest due to demolition of the Venus Stadium in 1953.
