Fotbal Club UTA Arad (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈuta aˈrad]), commonly known as UTA Arad, or simply as UTA, is a Romanian professional football club based in the city of Arad, Arad County, currently playing in Liga II. UTA stands for Uzina Textilă Arad.

Founded in 1945 as IT Arad, they have won the national title six times and the national cup twice. Domestically, along with Chinezul Timișoara, UTA can be considered one of the most successful Romanian clubs of the 20th century, with only three teams winning more championships during that period, Steaua, Dinamo and Venus, all from Bucharest.

After a decline which started in 1979 with a relegation to the second league, in 2014 the team was dissolved.[1] With the support of fans, a new team started its way back from Liga IV, the fourth level of Romanian league system, and is credited as the official successor of the defunct club.[2]

"The Old Lady" plays in red and white kits at the Motorul Stadium, as their traditional home ground, Francisc von Neuman, is currently under reconstruction.

History[edit]

Establishment and first success (1945–1965)[edit]

The old lady was founded by the baron Francisc von Neuman, the owner of the Arad Textile Company, on April 18, 1945. The colors of the club (white - red) were inspired by Arsenal's colors, Neuman being a great fan of this team.[3]

It was here, on the corner, where the UTA platform is. Where the stadium is today, across the street. He held a meeting, there were many of his friends, engineers, trusted people. He said he wants to make a football team, who has a name to propose? Someone said Gloria, who was gone, someone else proposed to be like the factory: ITA. It was their factory! Good. And what colors should the team have? After many discussions it was noted to be white with green. Nobody knows today that for a few minutes, UTA had these colors: white-green. Then the baron, who had in mind the red-white combination of Arsenal, but he was so delicate he did not want to impose anything, was saved by someone from the community who said he could not "white with green, because are Nazi colors." People woke up and the colors remained white and red like on Highbury. Like Highbury was going to be the stadium, just a little smaller. (Dionisie Piros)[4]

Before the match in the Netherlands, the players of Feyenoord Rotterdam, intercontinental champions at that time, were amused by the value and the look of the Arad team: They ironized us when they saw how we were dressed. They wanted to give us a new equipment from head to toe. Eventually, we played with boots, leggings and shorts from them, and our t-shirts, remembered Gavril Birău. But on the pitch the situation was different, because Florian Dumitrescu opened the score in the 14th minute: I centered, and he hit with his head, although he did not excel at the head shot. remembered Mircea Axente. Feyenoord then equalized by Jansen in the 25th minute and 1-1 remained to the end, with all the assault of the Dutch at the gate of Gornea and in the despair of the nearly 70,000 spectators. coach Nicolae "Coco" Dumitrescu described.[8]

Before the Arad second match, scheduled for 30 September 1970, exactly one year after the humiliation in Warsaw, Ernst Happel, the Austrian coach of Feyenoord said: A qualification of the Romanians at our expense would be equivalent to the eighth wonder of the world. The match ended 0-0, so UTA, supported by over 20,000 people, and, thanks to the goal scored in away, qualified further. After the game, UTA fans shouted at the coach of Feyenoord in front of Astoria Hotel: "Happel, Happel, Ha, Ha, Ha!"[9]

The decline and bankruptcy (1975–2013)[edit]

The decline started in the 1975–76 edition, materialized with a 17th place in the 1978–79 edition, thus UTA relegated for the first time in its history to Divizia B.

After two years in the second division (3rd place in 1979–80 and 9th in 1980–81), UTA returned to Divizia A under the technical leadership of coach Ştefan Czako, but failed to last for more than a year, relegating again to the second division after occupying only 17th place in Divizia A at the end of 1981–82 season.[10]

Flavius Domide, one of the club's legends.

In the following two Divizia B seasons the team occupied the following positions: 2nd in 1982–83 and 5th in 1983–84, when, from the team coached by Gavril Birău and Flavius Domide were part the following players: Lovas, Bubela, Bodi, Gheorghieș, Gal, Hirmler, Gaie, Csodras, Ţîrlea, Váczi II, Vânăru, Găman, Tisza, Iliescu, Lupău, Roxin, Corec, Vuia, Cigan, Lalu, Leuc, Terez, Ţucudean, Negrău, Varşandan.

After the promotion, the old lady managed to maintain only two years in the Divizia A, occupying the 11th place in the 1993–94 season and the 18th place in the 1994–95 edition, relegating again in the Divizia B.

In the 2005–06 season, UTA finished 16th and relegated in Divizia C, for the first time in its history.

But UTA Arad will not play in this league because after an assignment agreement with Liberty Salonta, UTA would take the place of Liberty in Liga I and Liberty would take the place of UTA in Liga III.[15][16]

Thus, qualified in Liga I for the 2006–07 season, club president Nicolae Bara signed with coach Marius Lăcătuş and under his leadership, UTA occupied the 12th place at the end of the season.[17]

Marius Lăcătuş resigned on 1 October 2007 and at the end of the 2007–08 season, UTA, coached by Roland Nagy, owned by Nicolae Bara and Sandu Ion, occupied the 17th place and relegated again to the Liga II.

In August 2013, Adrian Marțian, a controversial businessman, took over Giovanni Catanzariti's majority stake, promising the financial recovery of the club and to bring back the good results, but by November he lost the support of the supporters and the legend of the club, Flavius Domide, asking him to leave the club to competent people from Arad.[18][19]

Sorin Botiș, ex-captain and one of the main artisans of the team's return to Liga II.

Another team, supported by a part of UTA fans, called UTA Bătrâna Doamnă was founded in 2013 by former player Marius Ţucudean, was enrolled in Liga IV instead of UTA II and receiving in March 2014 the logo, the record and the colors of UTA from UTA Supporter Club, the owner of these, becoming officially UTA Arad. The Liga II team had to change their name to FC UTA SA. At the end of the 2013–2014 season of Liga II, UTA SA was excluded from the championship by FRF for not attending two matches and relegated to the 6th League, where it did not sign up and therefore was dissolved.[20]

Rebirth (2013–present)[edit]

In the summer of 2017, FRF has officialized that UTA Bătrâna Doamnă changed his name back to FC UTA Arad being the official and legal successor of the old club.[26]

Grounds[edit]

Stadionul Motorul.
Stadionul Francisc von Neumann (Old Stadium).

The club plays its home matches on Stadionul Motorul in Arad, because their stadium, Stadionul Francisc von Neuman, is under reconstruction. Because the reconstruction of Stadionul Francisc von Neuman is not ready until 2018 the club decided to modernize Motorul Stadium so the club can play home if they promote, until then the team will play at Otto Greffner. After one year and a half spent at Otto Greffner the team will return to play at Motorul Stadium which is newly renovated until the construction of the new Stadionul Francisc von Neuman is finished.

Their main rivalry is with the supporters of Poli Timișoara, but also with FC Rapid București and FC Universitatea Cluj. They have a friendship with fans of Corvinul Hunedoara (currently supporting FC Hunedoara)[27] and ultras of CSA Steaua București.

Rivalries[edit]

UTA's most important rivalry is with Politehnica Timișoara. The match between them, Derbiul Vestului (West Derby), has been the leading Romanian football encounter in the last 65 years, as UTA and Poli are the two most successful football teams from the west of the country.
