Fotbal Club Steaua București (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈste̯awa bukuˈreʃtʲ]), formally known as FCSB, is a Romanian professional football club based in Bucharest.

Founded in 1947 as Asociația Sportivă a Armatei București, the team is historically known as belonging to the Romanian Army, however the football department separated in 1998. The Army sued the club in 2014 and has since been in a conflict regarding the ownership of the Steaua brand. It has spent its entire history in the Liga I, the top tier of the Romanian football league system. Domestically, Steaua has won Liga I 26 times, Cupa României 22 times, Cupa Ligii 2 times and Supercupa României 6 times – all competition records. Internationally, they have won the European Cup and European Super Cup, both in 1986. They have also reached the European Cup final in 1989, the final of the Intercontinental Cup, quarter-finals of the European Cup Winners' Cup and the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup.

Steliștii currently play their home games at Arena Națională, having moved there from the Ministry of National Defence-owned Stadionul Ghencea. Initially, the club played in the colours of the Romanian tricolour – blue, yellow and red – but yellow soon lost its importance, and the team became associated with the red and blue colours. Recently, some away kits have begun to reintegrate the yellow colour.

The club has a long-standing rivalry with neighbouring Dinamo București, with matches between the two being commonly referred to as "The Eternal Derby" or "The Romanian Derby".
