Scornicesti was the home town of communist dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu. He wanted to make a "model-town” out of Scornicesti, which was actually more like a village, with a population of aprox. 10.000. So he built new flats, tearing down the old houses along the main road, and he also built a large stadium(for a small town), with a seating capacity of 30.000. It was one of the most modern stadiums in the country, at that time. He also created a team, recruiting some of the best Romanian players of that moment, some of them having to play there, against their own will. Of course, after the fall of his regime, in ‘89, the team was dissolved, and the stadium abandoned. The main stand is home now for a few homeless people.
