F. C. Farul Constanţa is a professional football club from Constanţa, Romania. Established in 1949, Farul is currently competing in Liga 1 (formerly known as Divizia A). The club has yet to win a Romanian title. Notably, the 2004/2005 season brought for Farul some outstanding performances that enabled it to finish the season on the 5th place and reach to its first ever Romanian Cup final match, unfortunately lost, 0-1, to FC Dinamo Bucureşti.

In Romanian "farul" means "the lighthouse".

Farul Constanţa are also a well-known rugby union team, who hosted the first Heineken Cup rugby match.

History

In 1949, the two football clubs of Constanţa, Dezrobirea and PCA, were merged to create a new team, "Locomotiva PCA Constanţa", that played in the Divizia B (the 2nd League). After the 1954 edition, the team was promoted for the first time to the 1st League (Divizia A), and in 1958, the team's name was changed from "Locomotiva" to "Farul" Constanţa.

Its best achievements are reaching the fourth place in Liga 1 and the semi-finals of the Balkans Cup, and winning Liga 2 four times.
