I have just read about the CSKA - CSKA story and have been inspired to write about the Romanian cases. The divided Romanian football Romanian football has been "infested" the last few years with cases of teams going bankrupt (or another major mess up) and have 2 new teams fighting over their history, badge, trophies, etc etc. All these cases have lead to a huge divisiveness between romanian football supporters. The most famous case is Steaua Bucharest: CSA Steaua Bucharest vs FCSB case.Here the legal problem was/is about the ownership of the brand, badge, trophies, etc. From this fighting, supporters have been divided, the Sud Curve (Peluza Sud) ultras decided to go with the "new", 4th league team of the Army that has the colours and names of Steaua Bucharest. The Peluza Nord ultras were neutral and inactive until last year or early this year when they announced they will go and support FCSB at the match against Dinamo. I dont know, however, how the simple people (as in "they sometimes go to the stadium" and "watch quite often on tv") from Bucharest feel about it. I suspect that there are very few that that go to matches of both teams, but I'd say the larger part are with FCSB. Although, more people might be interested in Steaua Bucharest as they have just promoted to the 3rd league and are getting a new stadium. Outside of Bucharest, I think it's pretty safe to say that over 80% are with FCSB. This is not surprising as the average Romanian supporter is more of a "result supporter" and we can see now, as FCSB is doing worse, more and more stop caring about them. 2nd biggest case is the case of Universitatea Craiova. Universitatea Craiova have been founded in 1948. They have been champions and cup winners multiple times, produced huge players for team and country, one of the most loved clubs in Romania. However, in 2011, when businessman Adrian Mititelu was running the club, he got into a heated argument with the heads of the Romanian Football Federation which lead to Mititelu's team (which had major financial issues) was unaffiliated from the 1st league. This unaffiliation later has been proven to be illegal. He has been allowed to sign the team up for the 2nd league, but due to the financial struggles, they didnt finish the season, having been pulled out. Soon after, the company that managed the team went bankrupt. The same season, the local authorities of Craiova created a team called CS U Craiova. This team has been allowed to sign up straight to the 2nd division, in the season when Mititelu's FC U Craiova played there. They played against each other that season. This has split up supporters from the city. The ones that support Mititelu's new team say that he owned the real Universitatea Craiova, so the city hall's team is a fake clone. The supporters of CS U Craiova (city hall) have issues with the way Mititelu ran the club and had enough of him. There have been quite a few legal cases about this, don't ask me about them, it's too much of a mess. Currently, CS U Craiova (who now somehow use the original name and logo of the old club) are still in the 1st league and almost became champions. Mititelu's new team has promoted to the 2nd which will likely re-ignite the conflict. If Mititelu's FC U 1948 promote to the 1st, Craiova will be a barrel of explosives.
