Team kit

Farul Constanța was recognized by many Romanian fans as one of the best Romanian clubs outside Bucureşti as not only did they achieve consistent results by finishing within the top 4 in the SuperLiga almost every year, they were also the first and only Romanian team to play in the then known Heineken Cup (known as the European Rugby Champions Cup now), during its inaugural season in 1995–96, notably playing in the first ever match of the Heineken Cup against Stade Toulousain in Constanța.
