CFR Cluj is a Romanian professional football club from the city of Cluj-Napoca in Transylvania, Romania. The club had spent most of their existence in the lower divisions, except for a spell in Divizia A in the 1970s, until they received significant financial backing from Arpad Paszkany in 2002. CFR Cluj returned to the top flight in 2004 and the following season took part in their first UEFA competition, the Intertoto Cup, finishing as runners-up. In 2007–08, CFR Cluj were champions of Liga I for the first time in their history, taking the title away from teams from the city of Bucharest for the first time in 17 years, qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stages in the process, six years after having been in the third tier of Romanian league football. CFR Cluj started the 2008–09 UEFA Champions League with an unexpected win against Roma, followed by a draw against the previous season’s Champions League finalists, Chelsea. The team has set a record since their major ownership change in 2002, they managed to win eight trophies: the Liga I championship, the Romanian Cup, and the Romanian Supercup.
