Faur București was a football club based in Bucharest, Romania.


The club was established in 1935 as Metalul by workers at Malaxa. Prior to World War II they were known as Titanii and Rogifer. After the nationalisation of Malaxa, the club was renamed 23 August before becoming Metalochimic. In 1947–48 the club won promotion from Divizia B into Divizia A.[1] However, they finished second bottom of the division the following season, and were relegated back to Divizia B.[2] The club was later renamed Energia and then back to Metalul again. The club's junior team won the national championship in 1970 and 1980.

Following the Romanian revolution in 1989, the club became Faur București. It folded in 2005.
