History[edit]

Early years (1902–1942)[edit]

Debrecen in 1962-63

The club was founded on 12 March 1902, initially being known as "Egyetértés Futball Club" but on becoming independent it was renamed "Debreceni Vasutas Sport Club" (Debrecen Railway Sports Club). In 1926 professionalism came to the Hungarian football scene, with the unfortunate result that "Bocskay FC" was formed using players from DVSC and city rivals DKASE and DTE, with the result that Bocskay ruled the football roost in Debrecen for 15 years while DVSC continued to struggle in the lower divisions. In 1940 the professional/amateur division of players was abolished and Bocskay suffered financial collapse, returning DVSC to top-dog position in the city. Debrecen reached the Hungarian First Division for the first time in 1942–43, but then suffered something of a yo-yo existence for the next fifty years, suffering eight relegations in all, and even starting the 1967 season in the Third Division. During this period the club underwent a number of name changes. It became "Debreceni Vasutas Sport Egyesület" in 1948–49, "Debreceni Lokomotiv" (hence the nickname) in 1949, "Debreceni Törekvés" in the 1955–56 season, and it was known as "Debreceni Vasutas SC" from 1957 to 1979. In 1979 the two city teams, DVSC and DMTE were united into one team, called DMVSC, but after ten years the clubs split again and the team adopted its current name.

Back to the First Division[edit]

Debrecen's most successful period has been since its most recent promotion to the First Division in 1993, since when the club has won its only national honours – the Hungarian Cup was won in 1999 and 2001, and the Hungarian League title for the first time in 2005. Although the team was relegated from top flight football in 2001 as a result of questionable refereeing on home matches (Ref. Béla Kiss was helped to escape from the stadium by officials in order to avoid the crowd's anger after the match against Budapest Honvéd FC), the then promoted BKV Előre SC could not afford to play in the first league in lack of the necessary financial conditions, thus DVSC remained in the top flight as the better relegated team according to the rules and regulations of the championship which led to some controversy whether it was just.
The first international matches were played in 1998 in the Intertoto Cup. Debreceni VSC beat FC Dnepr Mogilev, FC Hradec Králové, FC Hansa Rostock, and lost to Ruch Chorzów in the semi finals.
In 1999 Debrecen played in the first round of the UEFA Cup 1999-00 and they were beaten by the German VfL Wolfsburg 3–2 on aggregate. Although Debrecen beat the German club 2–1 at home, they lost 2–0 in the away-game, and their first UEFA Cup season ended.

Debreceni VSC's stadium is located in Oláh Gábor utca in Debrecen. The capacity of the Stadium Oláh Gábor út is 12,500. Since the team's stadium did not meet the UEFA criteria, Debreceni VSC had to play their Champions League and Europa League matches in Puskás Ferenc Stadium, in Budapest.

Lajos Kósa, mayor of Debrecen and Member of Parliament of Hungary, announced that by 2012 Debreceni VSC will be playing at the new stadium and can celebrated their 110-years anniversary of the foundation.[54]

Tibor Krecz announced that there were four tenders among which there were Hungarian and foreign companies on 5 December 2012. It was also announced that the money available is enough for the execution of the construction. The committee of the NSR Ltd. will evaluate the tenders and announces the winner who can start the construction in the spring of 2013.[55]

The plans of the new stadium was presented and displayed on the official website of the Debreceni VSC on 3 May 2012.[56]

The construction of the new stadium officially started on 29 January 2013. At the conference hall of the Kölcsey Centre Marjay Gyula (the project leader), László Vígh (member of the Hungarian Parliament), and Lajos Kósa, mayor of the City of Debrecen, officially started the reconstruction with an opening ceremony.[57]

Viktor Orbán, Hungarian prime minister, said that "the Hungarian spirit, the architects, the engineers, the workers make Hungary a big country again with this constructions like the Nagyerdei stadium" (in Hungarian: "A magyar szellem, a tervezők, a mérnökök, a munkások ilyen alkotásokkal teszik ismét naggyá Magyarországot"). The stadium was also santificied by Nándor Bosák, bishop of the Roman Catholic Church, Gusztáv Bölcskei, minister, and Fülöp Kocsis, bishops of the Greek Catholic Church. After the sanctification, singers such as Lou Bega, Viktor Király, Ildikó Kersztes, Gigi Radić, and Erika Miklósa entertained the audience. The first match was played between the Debrecen All Stars and Hungary All Stars, including players such as Attila Pintér, current Hungary national football team coach, Kálmán Kovács, former Budapest Honvéd legend, Péter Lipcsei, former Ferencváros icon, György Véber, former Újpest icon and current Mezőkövesd manager, Imre Garaba, former Hungary international, Flórián Urbán, former Újpest legend, and Lajos Détári, former Hungary national team legend.[58]
