FCM Bacău was a Romanian football club, founded in 1950 and dissolved in 2014. It is the best placed Moldovan team in the Liga I All-Time Table, ranking 10th with 42 seasons played.


The club was established in 1950, and has achieved some decent results in the league (despite never having finished in the top 3), 4th place in the 1972/1973 season and 5th place in the 1996/1997 season as its best results there. In 2001, FCM Bacău relegated to the second league, but maintained in the first division after buying a place from promoted FC Baia Mare.

In the Romanian Cup, FCM Bacău managed to reach the final in the 1990/1991 season, eventually being defeated 2–1 by Universitatea Craiova, which also won the league that season. Their best European performance was achieved in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (the predecessor of the U.E.F.A. Cup) in the 1969–1970 Edition when the team, named at that time Dinamo Bacau, reached the quarter-finals, after eliminating teams like F.C. Floriana (Malta), F.K Skeid (Norway) and Kilmarnock F.C. (Scotland), being defeated by the team who at the end of the competition would win the trophy Arsenal F.C. with a humiliating 2-0 in Romania and 7–1 at Highbury Stadium.

FCM Bacău won the 1998 edition of Cupa Ligii and was runner-up in 2000.

In the 2001–2002 Divizia A season, Cătălin Cursaru the FCM Bacau's striker was the national Top Goal Scorer, scoring 17 goals.

At the end of the 2005–06 Divizia A season it relegated to the Liga II after 11 consecutive seasons in Romania's Top League.

The team's pennant decline accelerated even more, and at the end of the 2009–10 Liga II season, it relegated to the Liga III.

FCM Bacău promoted at the end of the 2010–11 Liga III season after it finished 1st in the Seria I, with 23 victories, 3 draws and 0 loses. The following season it finished 7th in the Liga II.

FCM Bacău withdrew from the 2012–13 Liga II after round 1 of the season.[1] This meant the club's automatic relegation to the Liga III.

The following season it enrolled for the 2013–14 Liga III, but withdrew just before the start of the season.

The club normally should have enrolled in the 2014–15 season of the Liga IV, but this did not happen, the club being dissolved.
