Fotbal Club Bihor Oradea is a Romanian football club based in Oradea, founded in 1958, currently playing in the Liga II.

History[edit]

FC Bihor Oradea continues the football tradition in Oradea after the dissolution of a much greater club, CA Oradea.

The club was founded under the name Crişul Oradea in 1958. It has a short activity in the city championship and then in the regional championship. In 1960 the team merged with the footwear factory "Solidarity" and, finishing first in the 1960-1961 regional championship, it promotes to the Divizia B after a play-off at Sinaia.

In 1961-1962 the team was renamed ASA Crişul, and finishes eleventh in the third series of the Divizia B, barely escaping relegation. The following season, 1962-1963, the club finished first in the series, and promoted for the very first time in history to the Divizia A. Coach L. Zilahi used the following players: Weichelt, Bucur, Pojoni, Boros, Schiopu, Donciu, Al. Georgescu, Kun, Kuti, Curtu, Osan, Stanciu, Podaru, I. Pop, Bokos, I. Sandu, Manescu, Al. Iacob, Sovoiala, Lenalt, Fr. Stilgerlbauer, R. Petschovschi.

Crişul played for three seasons in the first league: 1963-1964 (7th place), 1964-1965 (9th place) and 1965-1966 (13th place), then it relegated to the Divizia B where it played for two seasons, 1966-1967 (seventh place) and 1967-1968 (second place). In the summer of 1968 it qualified for the play-off, in Timişoara, for the promotion to the Divizia A. There it manages to secure a place in the first league, coach A. Fernbach-Ferenczi, achieving this performance with the following players: Buiuc, Catona, Balogh, Sarac, Serfozo, E. Naghi, Popovici, Daraban, Sudi, Szucs, Tomes, A. Naghi, A. Kun II, I. Kun I, Harsani, Cocis, Ujlaki, Levai.

After another two seasons in the Divizia A - 1968-1969 (13th place) and 1969-1970 (15th place) it relegates, but returns the following season, 1970-1971, this time under the leadership of coach L. Vald. The core team: Catona (Bologan) - Popovici (Sarac), Lucaci, Bulc, Balogh, Daraban, Neşu, Szucs, Al. Naghi, Arnotchi, Şchiopu. Substitutes: Baumgartner, Cocoş, Ceauşu, Cocis, Ungur, Moţ. But again, after only one championship (1971-1972, 16th place) relegation to the Divizia B comes. The club's highly oscillating behavior imposed a series of organizational measures. It was organized as a football club, thus, new renamed Fotbal Club Bihor began in 1972 fighting for the return in the first league.

It succeeds to do so (after two second places achieved in the championship editions 1972-1973 and 1973-1974) at the end of the 1974-1975 season. Coaches L. Vlad (first half of the championship), R. Cosmoc and Gh. Staicu (second half of the championship) have led to the final victory with the next "11": Albu - E. Naghi, Lucaci, Poor, Popovici - Daraban, Kun II, Florescu - Szucs, Aguda, C. Vlad.

Next, the team remained at an average level of behavior in the Divizia A, finishing 9th (1975-1976 and 1976-1977), 14th (1977-1978) and 18th (1978-1979). The club management during this period, was provided by engineer Horea Cosma, as honorary president. Coaches: V. Blujdea, by mid-season 1977-1978, replaced by I. Reinhardt and Alex. Muta. Players used: Vidac, Albu - Z. Naghi, Gh. Dumitrescu, Lucaci, Popovici, M. Marian, Bigan, Dragos, Naom, C. Georgescu, Ghergheli, Petrovici, Schwartzman, Lupau, V. Stoica, Kun II, Florescu şi Fildan.
