UM Timișoara was a Romanian professional football club from Timișoara, Romania, founded in 1960 and dissolved in 2008.[1]


The football team of Uzinele Mecanice Timișoara was founded in 1960, playing in the first years of its existence in the Ronaț neighborhood on the field that would later become the Stadionul Gheorghe Rășcanu.[1][2]

The club managed to promoted in Divizia C at the end of the 1966–67 season, when it won the Banat Regional Championship and the play-off for promotion against Aurul Brad, the winner of the Hunedoara Regional Championship.[1][2] In the 1970s, the team went to play on the Stadionul UMT, known at that time as Stadionul Electrica.[1]

The club did not obtain great performances during its existence, but succeeded to play one season of Romanian top football, in the 2001–02 Divizia A.[1][2][3]

At the end of the 2007–08 Liga III, UMT were relegated to the Timiș County League (Liga IV), but didn't start in this competition because they were dissolved.[1][2]
