Today's Ferencvárosi TC Talking Points
Ferencvárosi Torna Club, known as Ferencváros (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈfɛrɛntsvaːroʃ]), is a Hungarian professional football club based in Ferencváros, Budapest, Hungary, that plays in the Hungarian League. Ferencváros was founded in 1899 by Ferenc Springer and a group of local residents of Budapest's ninth district, Ferencváros. Ferencváros is best known internationally for winning the 1964–65 season of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (after defeating Juventus FC in Turin 1–0) and for reaching the final of the 1974–75 season of the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.
The best-known part of the club is the well-supported men's football team – the most popular team in the country. The parent multisport club Ferencvárosi TC divisions include the women's football, women's handball, men's futsal, men's ice hockey, men's handball, men's water polo, cycling, gymnastics, athletics, wrestling, curling and swimming teams, some of which are highly successful.
The club colours are green and white, and the club mascot is a green eagle; hence another of the club's nicknames, "The Green Eagles".Close
