Chindia Târgoviște

Asociația Fotbal Club Chindia Târgoviște, commonly known as Chindia Târgoviște (Romanian pronunciation: ) or simply as Chindia, is a Romanian football club based in Târgoviște, Dâmbovița County, currently playing in the Liga I. Founded on 11 August 2010 by Romanian former footballer Gheorghe Popescu, in association with the former international referee Ion Crăciunescu and Târgoviște Municipality, FC Chindia wanted to be from its first years a long-term project, a model of professionalism and viable football club for the city. The club was named after the Chindia Tower, a tower built in the time of Prince Vlad III the Impaler, located near the stadium and part of the Curtea Domnească monuments ensemble. The monument is a symbol of the city and the football phenomenon, the team being most of the time associated with it, either by its name (Chindia), either when the squad is generically named "the team situated under the Chindia Tower". Even if it's not the original club of the city and does not hold the record of the old team (FCM Târgoviște), the club enjoys the support of the local fans, who consider it to be the main club of the city and the successor (at least sentimental) of the football history under the Chindia Tower, football history that starts long ago, in 1948. However, besides the fans' contribution, the actual club has also some elements that connect it with the original club, such as the colors (red and blue), the name "Chindia", also used by the first club between 1996 and 2003 (name that is the most loved by the fans) and the logo, which is in fact the logo used in the same period, mentioning that the old text C.F. Chindia was replaced by a new one, appropriate to the name of the new club F.C. Chindia.
