Club Career

After playing as a youth for Politehnica Timişoara between 1922 and 1924, Gheorghe Ciolac started his senior career at Banatul, another team from Timişoara. He played for this team until 1930, when he moved to Ripensia Timişoara.[2]

Gheorghe Ciolac was the captain of the team which won, between 1932 and 1938, four Divizia A titles and two Romanian Cups. He made his debut in the first tier of Romanian football on September 11, 1932, in a match between his team and CFR Bucureşti[2].

Ciolac scored the winning goal for Ripensia Timişoara in the first Romanian Cup final, but the match was contested by Ripensia's opponents, Universitatea Cluj, which asked for playing the match on a neutral stadium. The match was replayed two months later in Bucharest, and Ripensia won 5-0.

In 1936 Romanian Cup final, Ciolac scored two goals as Ripensia Timişoara demolished its opponents, Unirea Tricolor Bucureşti, winning the match by 5 goals to 1.

Ciolac retired from football in 1941, after playing his last match against Venus Bucureşti, on June 15[2].

International Career

Gheorghe Ciolac made his debut for the Romania national football team in May 1928, in a match against Yugoslavia, lost by Romanians, 1-3. In his second match for Romania, Ciolac scored a hat-trick, as Romania won 3-0 in front of Bulgaria.

In September 1929, he was for the first time the captain of the national team, in a match against Bulgaria, played on the Levski Stadium in Sofia.

Gheorghe Ciolac was selected in the Romanian team for the 1934 FIFA World Cup, but did not play, remaining on the bench in the match against Czechoslovakia. He played his last match for the national team in 1937, being also the captain of the team in the match against Czechoslovakia (1-1).
