World Soccer - - Euro Season Review -

The team from Sfantu Ghe­o­rghe, one of the old­est cities in Tran­syl­va­nia, will be play­ing in the Ro­ma­nian top divi­sion next term for the first time in their his­tory.

Sfantu Ghe­o­rghe is a Hun­gar­ian strong­hold, which may prove prob­lem­atic for the author­i­ties given the tra­di­tional an­tipa­thy of Ro­ma­nian foot­ball fans to­wards their Hun­gar­ian coun­ter­parts.

Sepsi will, how­ever, be forced to play their top-flight matches in the nearby city of Brasov be­cause the 5,000ca­pac­ity Sta­dionul Mu­nic­i­pal in Sfantu Ghe­o­rghe does not meet the league’s li­cens­ing con­di­tions.
