Current season

Founded in 1945 as IT Arad, they have won the national title six times and the national cup twice. Domestically, along with Chinezul Timișoara, UTA can be considered one of the most successful Romanian clubs of the 20th century, with only three teams winning more championships during that period—Steaua, Dinamo and Venus, all from Bucharest. After a decline which started in 1979 with a relegation to the second league, in 2014 the team was dissolved.[1] With the support of fans, a new team started its way back from Liga IV, the fourth level of Romanian league system, and is credited as the official successor of the defunct club.[2]

"The Old Lady" plays in red and white kits at the Francisc von Neuman.

HistoryEdit

Establishment and first success (1945–1965)Edit

The old lady was founded by the baron Francisc von Neuman, the owner of the Arad Textile Company, on April 18, 1945. The colors of the club (white – red) were inspired by Arsenal's colors, Neuman being a great fan of this team.[3]

It was here, on the corner, where the UTA platform is. Where the stadium is today, across the street. He held a meeting, there were many of his friends, engineers, trusted people. He said he wants to make a football team, who has a name to propose? Someone said Gloria, who was gone, someone else proposed to be like the factory: ITA. It was their factory! Good. And what colors should the team have? After many discussions it was noted to be white with green. Nobody knows today that for a few minutes, UTA had these colors: white-green. Then the baron, who had in mind the red-white combination of Arsenal, but he was so delicate he did not want to impose anything, was saved by someone from the community who said he could not "white with green, because are Nazi colors." People woke up and the colors remained white and red like on Highbury. Like Highbury was going to be the stadium, just a little smaller. (Dionisie Piros)[4]

Before the match in the Netherlands, the players of Feyenoord Rotterdam, intercontinental champions at that time, were amused by the value and the look of the Arad team: They ironized us when they saw how we were dressed. They wanted to give us a new equipment from head to toe. Eventually, we played with boots, leggings and shorts from them, and our t-shirts, remembered Gavrilă Birău. But on the pitch the situation was different, because Florian Dumitrescu opened the score in the 14th minute: I centered, and he hit with his head, although he did not excel at the head shot. remembered Mircea Axente. Feyenoord then equalized by Jansen in the 25th minute and 1–1 remained to the end, with all the assault of the Dutch at the gate of Gornea and in the despair of the nearly 70,000 spectators. coach Nicolae "Coco" Dumitrescu described.[8]

Before the Arad second match, scheduled for 30 September 1970, exactly one year after the humiliation in Warsaw, Ernst Happel, the Austrian coach of Feyenoord said: A qualification of the Romanians at our expense would be equivalent to the eighth wonder of the world. The match ended 0–0, so UTA, supported by over 20,000 people, and, thanks to the goal scored in away, qualified further. After the game, UTA fans shouted at the coach of Feyenoord in front of Astoria Hotel: "Happel, Happel, Ha, Ha, Ha!".[8]

But UTA Arad will not play in this league because after an assignment agreement with Liberty Salonta, UTA would take the place of Liberty in Liga I and Liberty would take the place of UTA in Liga III.[13][14]

Thus, qualified in Liga I for the 2006–07 season, club president Nicolae Bara signed with coach Marius Lăcătuş and under his leadership, UTA occupied the 12th place at the end of the season.[15]

The Liga II team had to change their name to FC UTA SA. At the end of the 2013–2014 season of Liga II, UTA SA was excluded from the championship by FRF for not attending two matches and relegated to the 6th League, where it did not sign up and therefore was dissolved.[18]

In the summer of 2017, FRF has officialized that UTA Bătrâna Doamnă changed its name back to FC UTA Arad being the official and legal successor of the old club.[24]

After finishing on the 12th and 13th position in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons, UTA finally came through in the 2019-20 season. Under Laszlo Balint's command, the team won the Liga II and promoted in Liga I after a 12-year wait.
