The club was founded in 2000 under the name AS Mioveni (Mioveni Sports Association). After one season in the Liga IV, AS Mioveni merged with Dacia Piteşti in 2001 and took its place in the Liga III, while the club changed its name to AS Dacia Mioveni, only to change it soon after that to CS Dacia Mioveni (Dacia Mioveni Sports Club).
In its first season of division football, Dacia finished 3rd in the Liga III. The next season however, the team finished top of series IV of the Liga III and therefore, in the summer of 2003 they promoted to the Liga II where they activated for four years without any outstanding performance.
At the end of the 2006-07 season, Dacia Mioveni finished runner-up in the Liga II, Seria II, and promoted for the first time in history to the Liga I.
Dacia's best performance was the only appearance in the Liga I, in the 2007-08 season, when they finished 16th and were relegated. During the same season Dacia Mioveni reached the semi-finals of the Cupa României, being eliminated by CFR Cluj, after an impressive win in the quarterfinals against Dinamo Bucureşti, with 1-0.
In the summer of 2010 the club was renamed, CS Mioveni being the new name. The club officials took this decision because Automobile Dacia refused to sponsor the club, instead sponsoring Italian club Udinese Calcio.
Even if the club had finished the 2010-11 Liga II season on the third position, the club promoted in the Liga I because the second placed FC Bihor had problems with the licence.
