HistoryEdit

Aurul Brad was founded in 1934, under the name of Mica Brad. Throughout its over 85 years of history, the club was also known as Metalul Brad or Progresul Brad.[1]

In the 1940–41 season, Aurul Brad played in the Divizia A, the first tier of the Romanian football league system. This was a notable achievement for a small town like Brad and the team was also able to finish in 5th, out of 13. That was the last season before World War II. After WWII, Aurul never managed to play again in the first league, despite it was never relegated.

GroundEdit

The team plays its home matches in Brad, Hunedoara County, on the Aurul Stadium, with a capacity of 1,500 seats.
