Football: Cash goal for Bacau.

ROMANIAN club FC Baia Mare has decided to cash in its promotion to the country's top division for one million dollars.

Club officials have agreed an amazing switch with FC Bacau who were destined for the drop from the Romanian top flight.

Bacau Mayor Dumitru Sechelariu said: "We reached an agreement with Baia Mare and Bacau will be back in the first division."

It is understood that about 20 companies in the city will lend the club the money for the deal.

A spokesman for FC Baia Mare said: "The two clubs have agreed to swap places."

He said the club did not have enough money to cope with the costs of playing in the first division.

A FIFA spokesman said: "This is not a nice situation, but we can't do anything about it."
