In the summer of 2012 the club ACS Recaș was moved to Timişoara and renamed ACS Poli Timișoara[1][2] after the dissolution of FC Politehnica Timișoara.[3] Valentin Velcea continued as head coach.[4] The club received most of its budget for the upcoming season from the local authorities.[5]

On 7 December 2012, Nicolae Robu, mayor of Timișoara, announced that ACS Poli has received, free, from Marian Iancu, FC Politehnica Timișoara's badge, history, records and colours [6] and that it can use them starting with the 2013-14 season.[7] However, due to the complications of the legal formalities and because of the FC Politehnica's debts, the team will play as ACS Poli in the 2013-14 season.[8][9] [10]

At the end of the 2012–13 Liga II the club promoted to the Liga I.
