History

AFC Turris-Oltul Turnu Măgurele was founded in 1965 as Voința Saelele and played for almost all its history at county level, Liga IV and Liga V. Voința won for the first time Divizia D at the end of the 2003–04 season, but withdrew from the third tier before the start of the new campaign, selling its place to Petrolul Videle. [1] At the end of 2016–17 Liga IV season, the team was crowned the champion of Teleorman County and went to the promotion play-off match where they defeated Mehedinți County champions, CS Strehaia, 12–2 on aggregate and promoted to Liga III for the first time in the history of the club. [1]

In the summer of 2017 Voința changed its ownership and moved its headquarters from Saelele to Turnu Măgurele, also changing its name from Voința Saelele to Voința Turnu Măgurele. [2] After a strong campaign of transfers and rebranding, Voința has set as its goal a promotion to Liga II, but finally was ranked only 3rd, after Petrolul Ploiești and FCM Alexandria. [3] In the summer of 2018 the club moved also its home ground to Turnu Măgurele and was renamed again, this time as Turris-Oltul Turnu Măgurele, a name much closer to the football past of the city, this being actually the first name used by the old football club, Dunărea Turris Turnu Măgurele. [4]

Turris-Oltul is the third football team in the history of Turnu Măgurele, after Dunărea Turris and Sporting.

At the end of the 2018–19 season, Turris-Oltul Turnu Măgurele promoted to Liga II for the first time in its history, after winning the third series of the Liga III, being ranked ahead teams such as FC U Craiova, CSM Alexandria or SR Brașov. [5]
