ASAR had three founding clubs: Olympia and Colentina București from Bucharest and United Ploiești from Ploiești.

This three clubs, which consisted mainly of non-Romanian players, contested the first three edition of the Romanian football league.[1]

The three pioneer clubs in the Divizia A were Olympia București, Colentina București and United Ploiești, each team played a fixture against the other two clubs, totalizing a number of three matches disputed.
