Jiul Petroşani (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈʒi.ul petroˈʃanʲ]) is a Romanian professional football club from Petroşani, Hunedoara County, Romania, founded in 1919.


The history of Jiul Petroşani goes back to 1919, when the club was founded as Clubul Atletic al Minerilor din Petroşani (Athletic Club of Petroşani Miners).

In 1925 Jiul was runners-up in the Liga I.

Most of its history it played in the Liga I and the Liga II. In played in the Liga I for 41 seasons, being ranked 14th in the all time table.

Jiul Petroşani won the Romania Cup in 1974 and was runner-up in 1972. In 1979, Jiul was a runner-up in the Balkans Cup.

Sponsored by the miners' union in the '90's, its chairman for a few years was Miron Cozma, the miners' union leader.

In the Liga I it played most recently in the 2006–07 season. After that it relegated all the way to the Liga IV. Mostly at fault for these disastrous results is owner Alin Simota, because of his refusal to sell the club to a more potent investor.
