Few associations can match the football pedigree of the Hungarian Football Federation, which was founded in 1901. A successful team from the outset, Hungary
were regular features at major tournaments, such as the first Olympic Football Tournament (Stockholm 1912) and the first FIFA World Cup? (Uruguay 1930). Hungary
were a true force to be reckoned with and were unbeaten for nearly a decade, a period that included a stunning 6-3 victory against England on the hallowed Wembley turf. The 1954 FIFA World Cup? Final in Berne against West Germany will also live long in the memory, as Hungary
lost and the defeat signalled the start of a return to normality. Countless Hungarian officials have also excelled within FIFA and UEFA, while Hungarian referees also have an enviable reputation and are subsequently regular participants in final competitions. In the first 100 years of its existence, the Hungarian national team played 747 matches against 72 different opponents, wining 368, drawing 166 and losing just 213. A proud record for a proud association!
