History[edit]

Voinţa continued the football tradition in Sibiu after the dissolution of FC Sibiu and FC Inter Sibiu.

The club promoted from the Liga IV to the Liga I in just three seasons.

Voinţa had an excellent start in the 2010–11 Romanian Cup and qualified for the Round of 32, where they faced, Liga I club and fierced rival from the Sibiu County, Gaz Metan Mediaş. On September 21, 2010, Voinţa produced a big surprise and defeated Gaz Metan, at Sibiu, with a score of 3–1 after the extra time, after the first 90 minutes had ended 1–1. In the Round of 16 they were defeated only after the penalty shoutout by the renowned FC Timişoara.

Voinţa finished 1st the first half of the 2010–11 Liga II season, and had a great chance to promote for the very first time in history to the Liga I.

Voinţa finished 4th its first Liga II season in history, but all was not lost, because FRF decided that a play-off round will be played between Săgeata Năvodari and Voinţa Sibiu for the last vacant place in the 2011–12 Liga I.[1]

After 0–0 at Năvodari and a 2–0 win at Sibiu, Voinţa promoted for the very first time in history to the Liga I. Sibiu is represented at the highest football level after 15 years of absence, Inter last playing there in the 1995–96 Divizia A. In Liga 1, they achieved their first point in the first round, 1–1 home with Steaua Bucharest and their first win at Ploiești, 1–0 with Astra.

Voința relegated after only one season of top football, finishing 16th in the table, with 32 points.

After only 11 rounds played in the 2012–13 Liga II Voința withdrew from the championship, because of immense debts.[2]
