Fotbal Club Ceahlăul Piatra Neamț is a Romanian football club based in Piatra Neamț, established on 20 October 1919.

The club's home ground is Ceahlăul Stadium with a capacity of 18,000 seats.[1] Team colors are, starting with the 2006/07 season, orange, yellow and black.

The club takes its name from the Ceahlău mountain.


Ceahlăul promoted for the very first time in history to the Liga I in 1993 and played there until 2004, when it relegated to the Liga II with head coach Viorel Hizo and his assistant Toader Șteț, for the first time since its promotion.

They promoted back to the Liga I the very next season. They were supposed to play in the Liga II for the 2007/08 season after finishing 15th out of 18 teams, but Liga II team Delta Tulcea could not obtain the license for the 2007/08 season of Liga I, so Ceahlăul played in its place. But it was a short lived joy, because it relegated once again, only to promote immediately after.

The objective for the 2009/10 season of the Liga I was to avoid relegation, but once again the club relegated, for the third time in the last 6 years.

Ceahlăul started strong the 2010–11 Liga II season and dominated the series until the end, promoting once again in Liga I.
