The club represented the home village of former dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu, arguably receiving "extra help" to reach Divizia A and remain there. In 1974 promoted in Divizia C, 1978 in Divizia B and then, after only one year they reached the first division. It is well known an episode from the last round of the 1978–1979 Divizia B season, when to succeed promotion on goal difference, they defeated Electrodul Slatina with 18–0, it also says that at that game, Dumitru Dragomir, the president of the club at that time, brought out both teams from the showers on the field to score a few more goals, that after he misunderstood the result of the other match.[2] However, after the fall of the communist regime, the club lost its main support and was excluded from championship, the same thing happened with the other clubs which were supported by the communist regime, like Victoria București (police team) or Flacăra Moreni (securitate team) since then, FC Olt did not manage to play at a higher level than Liga II.
