Fotbal Club UTA Arad (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈuta aˈrad]), commonly known as UTA Arad, or simply as UTA, is a Romanian professional football club based in the city of Arad, Arad County, currently playing in Liga I. UTA stands for Uzina Textila Arad.
Founded in 1945 as IT Arad, they have won the national title six times and the national cup twice. Domestically, along with Chinezul Timișoara, UTA can be considered one of the most successful Romanian clubs of the 20th century, with only three teams winning more championships during that period—Steaua, Dinamo and Venus, all from Bucharest. After a decline which started in 1979 with a relegation to the second league, in 2014 the team was dissolved. With the support of fans, a new team started its way back from Liga IV, the fourth level of Romanian league system, and is credited as the official successor of the defunct club.
"The Old Lady" plays in red and white kits at the Francisc von Neuman.
