They were a main team in Sibiu, being four times regional champions of Sibiu. Their best pre-war performance was defeating the 6-time-in-a-row champion Chinezul Timişoara in 1927–28 quarter-finals. But after that they forfeited their semi-final tie against Jiul Lupeni.[1]

They also played three seasons in the Divizia A : 1932–33, 1933–34, 1950, but without notable performances.[1]
