Pécsi Mecsek Football Club, commonly referred to as Pécsi MFC or simply PMFC, is a professional Hungarian football club based in Pécs, Baranya, that plays in the OTP Bank Liga, the Hungarian First Division. The club was established on 16 February 1973 by the merger of five other clubs of the city, Pécsi Dózsa, Pécsi Ércbányász SC, Pécsi Helyiipari SK, Pécsi Bányász and Pécsi Építők.

Pécsi MFC's home ground is the Stadium of PMFC, also known as Stadium of Újmecsekalja, a football stadium in Uránváros. The stadium’s current capacity is 7,160, it was opened in 1955.

Pécsi MFC holds long-standing rivalries with other football clubs, most notably Komlói Bányász SK, a club based in Komló, a city near Pécs, and Kaposvári Rákóczi FC from Kaposvár.

Since its foundation in 1973, the club played most of their seasons in the first division, with twelve seasons spent in the second division. After finishing on the first place of the Western Group of the second division in 2011, the club was promoted to the highest level of professional league.

The owner of the club is Dezső Matyi, a local businessman in the book publishing industry, who acquired the club in 2007.


Pécs were promoted to the first division in 1955 and they have managed to play on top flight to 1975 since except for the season of 1958-59 when they finished as champions of the second division after the relegation. Pécs played in second division in the season of 1975-76. Pécs finished as champions of the second division in the season of 1976-77. PMSC has been playing in the first division for 20 years between 1977 and 1997. They won the Hungarian Cup in 1990.

In the then European Cup Winners Cup they were drawn against Manchester United, and became the first team to play against English opposition in Europe since English teams were banned five years previously. They lost the game 3-0 on aggregate, and Manchester United went on to win the competition, beating Barcelona in the final.[1]

In 2003 Pécs rejoined the first division after two years of exile.[2] Pécs drew with Szombathelyi Haladás and finished first eleven points clear. Tamás Nagy's team lost only three times in 34 matches.
