History

Corona managed to promote for the very first time in history to the Liga I in June 2013. It advanced from the Liga IV to the Liga I in only four years. Only FC Victoria Brănești succeeded to do so before. The participation in the first league was short-lived. Corona was relegated after only one season. In Liga I, Corona won only two games, against Ceahlăul Piatra Neamț and FC Vaslui. The team finished last, with only 14 points in 34 games, with the weakest attack and the weakest defense lines in the championship. Only days after the end of the season, the mayor of Brașov, George Scripcaru, announced that the football section of the club financed by the mayorship ended its activities.[1]

The club was refounded in the summer of 2016, but it activated only at youth level until the summer of 2019, when the senior squad was refounded as CSM Corona Brașov.[2][3]

Grounds

Until the promotion to the Liga I, Corona played its home matches on the Carpați Stadium but was forced to move from there because it didn't meet the requirements for top football. In the first division, the team shared the Silviu Ploeșteanu Stadium with FC Brașov. In 2016, the club moved again on the Carpați Stadium.
