Hungary hasn’t impacted the top footballing scene much, especially in recent years. However, the country has a deep-rooted history in soccer. They have some of the oldest teams in the world, with Ferencvaros being one of them. The team has been around for more than a century.

Ferencvaros is one of the football clubs to begin its journey in the late 1800s and early 1900s. They’ve also been one of the most successful teams in Hungary and continue to represent the country in Europe as they participate in various European competitions. Ferencvaros is undoubtedly a team to watch.

Ferencvaros General Info

Ferencvaros is one of the 12 teams in the Hungary NB I league and plays all its home games at the Ferencvaros Stadion in Budapest. The stadium has a capacity of 23,700 and is one of the biggest in the country. They’ve been around for more than 120 years, playing competitively across Europe.

The club’s full name is Ferencvaros Torna Club. They are also commonly called Ferencvaros, FTC, Fradi, Zold Sasok (meaning Green Eagles), and Zold-Feherek (translating to The green and whites). The team’s primary colors are white, green, and black. They also have active departments in other sports.

Ferencvaros History

The district’s citizens of Budapest decided to come together on May 3rd, 1899, to form a football club, and they called the team Ferencvaros TC. The team’s name didn’t change from inception, and they’ve been a top team in the league, pushing to represent Hungary on the European scene.

Although they’ve had some rocky moments throughout their history, the team remains the most successful Hungarian team in the league and on the continental level. They are one of the few teams in the country to have participated in competitions across Europe throughout the history of the league.

Ferencvaros Records

Ferencvaros stats show that the team is the most successful side in Hungary. They’ve been better than every team in the country, winning all the domestic championships and some European competitions. They have an impressive record, but they’ve had a few stints in the country’s lower leagues.

The team had played in the Nemzeti Bajnoksag I since it was created in 1901, other than three seasons when Ferencvaros’ license was withdrawn, and they had to play in the amateur leagues. They’ve also played in Magyar Kupa over 20 times and are the first Hungarian club to participate in the UEFA Champions League.

Championships Won

Ferencvaros is one of the best to win championships in Hungary. They’ve finished in the top two in 69 seasons. They first finished second in 1902 but eventually won the league. Since then, they’ve won the Nemzeti Bajnoksag I 33 times.

Outside the league, they’ve won the Magyar Kupa 24 times, making them the most successful team in the country. They’ve also won other domestic titles multiple times, like the Szuperkupa and Ligakupa. And they’ve also had successes on the European scene.

Historical Events

The team has had many historical events throughout its history. One of the team’s most significant moments was winning the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in the 1964-65 season. They also have top moments from the early 1900s when they won multiple Nemzeti Bajnoksag I and the Magyar Kupa.

Another historical moment was when they made it into the UEFA Champions League competition, becoming the first Hungarian team to do that. However, they had some negative moments, such as when they had their license revoked between 2006 and 2009 and had to work their way back to the top division.
