AS Academia Rapid București (Romanian pronunciation: ['mi.a raˈpid bukuˈreʃtʲ]), commonly known as Academia Rapid, is a Romanian football club based in Bucharest, currently playing in the Liga IV. It is one of the several clubs claiming the legacy of FC Rapid București, which filled for bankruptcy in 2016.


In August 2017, Dan Tudorache, the mayor of Bucharest's Sector 1, announced that after a City Council meeting the FC Rapid logo, colours and club record have been rented until an auction set to commence in October 2017[1] and a new club, Academia Rapid was founded and enrolled in Liga IV, the 4th tier of the Romanian football league system, with FC Rapid legends such as Daniel Pancu, Daniel Niculae or Constantin Schumacher in its new staff.[2]
