Fotbal Club CFR 1907 Cluj (Romanian pronunciation: [t͡ʃefeˌre ˈkluʒ]) is a Romanian professional football club from the city of Cluj-Napoca in Transylvania, Romania ('CFR' stands for Căile Ferate Române, meaning Romanian Railways). The club had spent most of their existence in the lower divisions, except for a spell in Divizia A in the 1970s, until they received significant financial backing from the current owner in 2002. CFR Cluj returned to the top flight in 2004 and the following season took part in their first UEFA competition, the Intertoto Cup, finishing as runners-up. In 2007–08, CFR Cluj were champions of Liga I for the first time in their history, taking the title away from the teams of Bucharest for the first time in 17 years and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stages in the process, six years after having been in the Liga III, the third tier of Romanian league football. The team has set a record since their major ownership change in 2002, having managed to win nine trophies: the Liga I championship (three times), the Romanian Cup (four times), and the Romanian Supercup (twice).

Since rejoining the first division in 2004, the club has been known for relying heavily on foreign players, particularly Portuguese, but also African, South American and more recently European.

The club has a fierce rivalry with Universitatea Cluj, also from Cluj-Napoca. Matches between the two clubs are known as the Derby of Cluj.
