Fotbal Club Steaua București, known as Steaua Bucharest in English, is a Romanian professional football club based in the capital Bucharest. They are the most successful Romanian side, both domestically and in European competition. They were the first East European team to win the European Cup, beating Barcelona on penalties in 1986 in a remarkable shoot-out in which Steaua goalkeeper Helmuth Duckadam saved all four of Barcelona's penalties. Steaua reached the final again in 1989, but they lost heavily to AC Milan, future Chelsea player and manager Ruud Gullit scoring two goals. Steaua youth product and future Chelsea right back Dan Petrescu was on the losing side.

Historically Steaua are affiliated to the military, and were known as the Romanian Army sports club, though the football team separated in 1998. However their home stadium remains the property of the Ministry of National Defence.

Chelsea met Steaua Bucharest for the first time in a competitive match in the 2012-13 UEFA Europa League, progressing 3-2 on aggregate despite losing the away leg 1-0.
