In the summer of 2012 the club ACS Recaș was moved to Timișoara and renamed ACS Poli Timișoara after the dissolution of FC Politehnica Timișoara. Valentin Velcea continued as head coach. The club received most of its budget for the upcoming season from the local authorities.
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  and that it can use them starting with the 2013-14 season. 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.
