Old logo

The club was founded in 1984 as FC Zaria Bălți (Russian: ФК Заря Бельцы), and in 1992, when Moldova gained its independence, the club was renamed to FC Olimpia Bălți. In July 2014 it was decided to return to the old name - FC Zaria Bălți.

CSF Bălți gained worldwide notoriety in December 2009 for putting an online bid through which the winner would awarded a one-year contract as a player with the club.[2] The winner was a Brazilian businessman who had a brief career as a footballer in his native country. Nevertheless, the winning bidder declined the position stating that, since he never paid the application fee, he assumed his bid would not be taken into account.[3] In April 2010 the club called for a new bidding round.[4] The winner was never announced, though.
