Club Sportiv Portul Constanța, commonly known as Portul Constanța, or simply as Portul, is a Romanian football club based in Constanța, Constanța County and currently playing in the Liga IV – Constanța County, the fourth tier of the Romanian football league system.


Portul Constanța was established in 1930 under the name of SPM Constanța (Serviciul Porturi Maritime - Service Ports Maritime)[1] then, in the first post-war years (1945–1949), it was called PCA Constanța (Porturi Comunicații Ape - Ports Communications Water).

In the 1946–47 season, PCA won the Series IV of Divizia C, promoting for the first time in its history to Second Division.

In 1949, PCA merged with another local club, Dezrobirea, to form Locomotiva PCA, which promoted to the First Division in 1954 and which from 1958 was renamed as Farul Constanța. But the original club, eminently a harbour team, formed a new section of football called as SPT Constanța (Sindicatul Porturi și Transport - Syndicate Ports and Transport) between 1949 and 1953.[2]
