The club Football

BC Steaua București is the basketball section of CSA Steaua București sport club, based in Bucharest, Romania. Being part of one of Romania's biggest sports clubs, famous especially for its football team, Steaua's basketball club enjoyed plenty of success over the years, but also disappointments. Many of the last few years have been spent in the second division, including the previous season. However, BC Steaua merged with BC Targoviste, thus changing its name again, this time to BC Steaua Turabo București, and taking over Târgoviște's place in the Liga Națională. Turning on the new page in club's history, with Mladen Jojic as head coach, Steaua decided to compete in Divizia B with young team and mostly Romanian players, with the average age of 21.

History[edit]

After the Romanian Revolution, Baschet Club Steaua București was the first basketball club in Romania to turn private. However, after only few years it went bankrupt, and CSA Steaua operated only a youth club for basketball, under the name of Clubul Sportiv Școlar Steaua București. However, last summer, BC Steaua București merged with BC Târgoviște and played again in the first division, under the name BC Steaua București.

Fans[edit]

Steaua Bucuresti sports sections are famous by large fans database. With the biggest crown size in Romania, mostly dedicated to football and basketball club.

Currently Steaua's supporters are not led by a single group. The tendency nowadays is to form several small groups who play their own part. The most important part of them are located in the Peluza Nord (North End), some others taking their place in the Peluza Sud (South End). Because of different attitudes towards the team and the game (PS are usually tougher and more severe in which regards the game and often not so patient), there have lately been quite a few conflicts between the two. The groups at the PS (Ultras, Glas, Vacarm, Stil Ostil, Banda Ultra, Era, Outlaws, Hunters,South Boys) even officially ceased activity for a while because of conflicts like these with the more numerous PN. Groups inside Peluza Nord include Tineretului Korp, Titan Boys, Nucleo, Gruppo Tei, Skins Berceni, Insurgenții, Armata 47, Ultras Colentina, Gruppo Voluntari Est, Roosters.

It is rather difficult to assign Steaua fans a certain style. They are described by the typical Italian style, common in different respects to all Romanian groups of fans, with lots of choreographies, banners, flags, doubleholders and flags swinging in the air.
