Videoton Football Club (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈvidɛoton ɛf t͡seː]) is a Hungarian professional football club based in Székesfehérvár, in the west of Hungary, playing in the first division Hungarian League. Videoton won the Hungarian League title in 2011 for the first time in its history, one Hungarian Cup trophy, three times Hungarian League Cup winners and two Hungarian Super Cup successes. Videoton is best known in Europe for reaching the 1985 UEFA Cup Final.[1]

Videoton was founded in 1941 and its colours are blue and red. The club has played at its home ground, Sóstói Stadion, since 1967. The most successful period in Videoton's history came in the mid-1980s when Ferenc Kovács led the club to the final of the UEFA Cup in 1985. The second most successful era has been the last 3–4 years, which has seen the club win its first Hungarian League title in 2011 and managing to reach the group stages of the Europa League in the 2012/2013 season.[2]

Background[edit]

Main article: Videoton (company)

The name of the football club, Videoton, comes from the eponymous privately owned Hungarian company, Contract Electronics Manufacturer (CEM), the largest independent Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider in the CEE region, in the TOP 30 worldwide, TOP 10 in EU according to the latest ranking of MMI.[3][4]

History[edit]

The 1940s[edit]

Founded in 1941 as Székesfehérvári Vadásztölténygyár SK by the defense manufacturing company Székesfehérvári Vadásztölténygyár, the club was made up of workers of the local factory in its early years. The team first entered the Fejér County Championship in 1942/43 and went on to win the championship. In 1948 the club was broken into three teams, with one team playing in the NB III (Third Division of the National Championship), one in the County Championship and the third one in the Second division of the County Championship. In 1950, the workers of the factory assembled their own team in the hope of achieving better results, and the club was renamed Vadásztölténygyári Vasas on 10 March. Later on they eventually agreed on 3 January 1956, that all teams would join forces in a unified team built on Vadásztölténygyár. In that season the team won the County Championship by a very wide margin, and, after winning the following year's County Championship Winners Trophy, qualified for the second Division of the National Championship for the 1957/58 season.

The 1960s[edit]

The first opportunity to play in Hungary's highest league came along only a few years later. In the 1961/62 season the team finished in third position – barely qualifying for the first division. Known then as VT Vasas, the dream finally came true in 1967 when the team finished second in the second division and was promoted to the top league.

On 22 January 1968, the club was renamed Videoton SC, due to a sponsorship agreement with the electrical goods manufacturer Videoton. The first season in the top league wasn't very successful. The team won 9 games but lost 18 matches, finishing in fifteenth place, which resulted in them being relegated.

However, the following year, Videoton bounced back and won the second division. The next five years saw the club consolidate its position in the first division by finishing tenth, seventh, fifth, fourth and again fifth. Then in the 1975/76 season the team achieved the best position in its history by finishing second.

Videoton went on to produce modest results in the ensuing years, failing to finish in the top three on four occasions. Finally, in 1982, the Fehervar club reached the final of the Hungarian Cup, but were defeated 2–0 by Újpest. This was the beginning of the club's golden age. In 1984, the team finished third with the same number of points as ETO Győr, who finished second, but due only to a superior head-to-head performance. That season saw, József Szabó become the top goal-scorer in the 1st division with 19 goals.

The Golden era[edit]

József Verebes a.k.a. "The magician" managed Videoton in 1980-81 and in 1998-99
József Tajti managing Videoton 1986-87 season

On 18 September 1984, the UEFA Cup success story began. The club caught international attention when it reached the 1985 UEFA Cup Final during a campaign under the management of Ferenc Kovács. In the UEFA Cup 1984–85 season Videoton overcame Dukla Prague (1-0/0-0) in the first round,[5][6] Paris Saint-Germain FC (4-2/2-0) in the second round,[7][8] FK Partizan (0-2/5-0) in the third round.[9][10] They then had further success in the quarter-finals where Videoton played against Manchester United. At Old Trafford, Manchester United beat Videoton by a 1–0 scoreline with the only goal coming from Frank Stapleton.[11] The return leg in Székesfehérvár saw Videoton beat the English team 1–0.[12] In the penalty shootout Videoton won 5–4. In the semi-finals Videoton played Yugoslav) FK Željezničar. In the first leg in Fehervar, Videoton won 3–1[13] and it proved enough to overcome their Yugoslavian opponents after losing 2–1 in Sarajevo.[14] In the final they came up against Spanish giantsReal Madrid. The first leg match was played at a packed out stadium in Székesfehérvár, which saw Videoton lose 3–0 in front of a record 38,000 spectators at the Stadion Sóstói.[15] Ferenc Kovacs' side then flew out to Madrid for the return leg at the Bernabéu Videoton famously beat Real Madrid by 1–0 but lost 3–1 on aggregate.[16][17][18] The only goal of that memorable match was scored by Lajos Májer in the 86th minute. In the Hungarian domestic championship Videoton once again finished in third place.

The 1990s[edit]

After the golden era, Videoton continued to be a mainstay in the first division. However, they failed to achieve any significant results. The 1998 season saw them barely escape relegation, which surprised many. Finishing the season in 16th place, the club had to win a play-off against Sopron to remain in the top flight. They managed to do this by winning both games 2–1 and 3–0. Relegation came the following year ending a run of 29 years in the first division.

The 2000s[edit]

Andre Alves became top-scorer and champion of the Hungarian League in 2010

This was the beginning of a period for the club, which saw them go upwards and develop. After winning the Second Division and gaining promotion in 2000, the teamed once again reached the cup final in 2001, losing 5–2 to Debrecen. This led to the team's only participation in the Intertoto Cup, where they were defeated by PFC Marek Dupnitsa in the first round. In 2005, the club changed its name to FC Fehérvar. The next year saw the club's most successful domestic year. After a third place finish, the first in 21 years, the team finally won the Hungarian Cup for the first time by defeating Vasas SC 6–5 in a penalty shoot-out, after the match had finished 2–2 after extra time. A brand new main stand was erected and handed over in 2004. Videoton were close to bankruptcy when businessman István Garancsi rescued the club. He brought financial stability and a resurgence in fortunes on the pitch. 2008 saw the team win the first ever League Cup by defeating Debrecen 3–0 on aggregate (Home 1–0; Away 2–0). They won the League cup again in 2009, this time beating Pécsi FC 3–1 in the final. Being the favourite football club of the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Videoton FC co-operates with Puskas Akademia, Felcsut. From 2010 some of the most wealthy Hungarian millionaires started to appear in the VIP of the team (e.g. Mr Sandor Csanyi, president of the Hungarian bank OTP and the Hungarian Football Association) by the side of the Prime Minister. That's why supporters of rival teams often think that Videoton FC gets financial and other help from the politics and the referees.[19] Videoton FC entered into a joint working relationship with the Puskás Academy in Felcsút.

In July 2009 György Mezey (formerly champion with MTK and Budapest Honvéd) was appointed as the manager of the club.[20] At the beginning of the Hungarian National Championship 2009–10 season, the club reassumed the Videoton name.[21] In 2010 Videoton FC were leading the Hungarian National Championship I 2009–10 for many weeks,[22] but in the end their rivals Debreceni VSC won the championship.[23] The team finished second, and qualified for the Europa League. In January 2010 György Sándor joined the team from Újpest FC.[24] In June 2010, Videoton signed Bojan Djordjic and Martin Kayongo-Mutumba from the Swedish champion AIK.[25]

The 2010s[edit]

György Mezey has been the most successful manager on home ground by winning the 2010–11 season of the Hungarian League

In the first half of the 2010–11 season Videoton climbed to the top of the league, and remained there until the end.[26] The end of the season saw the club reach its peak by winning the Hungarian League title for the first time in its history.[27] In the same year the former Portuguese international Sousa was appointed as the manager of the club, taking over from title winner Mezey.[28]

Paulo Sousa managed to lead Videoton into the group stages of the Europa league 2012–13 season

The 2011–12 started with the forming of a new squad with new arrivals such as the Portuguese Caneira from Sporting Lisbon, Oliveira from Parma, Brandão from CD Fátima and Serbian Mitrović from Újpest. Since Videoton became the champions of the Hungarian league for the first time they could play in the UEFA Champions League 2011–12 season. Videoton FC played their first ever Champions League match in Klagenfurt, Austria against Sturm Graz (Sturm's pitch was one of the host places of the 2011 IFAF World Championship). Videoton lost 2–0 the first leg of the match.[29] In the second leg of the match Videoton beat Sturm Graz 3–2 which resulted the farewell from the international turf.[30] In the first match of the Hungarian League Videoton beat Paksi SE 4–0. Videoton finished second in the 2011–12 season of the Hungarian League.

The 2012–13 season started with the triumph in the Hungarian Supercup against Debrecen, the champions of the 2011–12 season. Videoton defeated the Hajdús on penalties after a 1–1 draw at home.[31][32] On 29 July 2012 Videoton started the 2012–13 season of the Hungarian League with a 1–1 draw against Pápa. On the international turf, Videoton entered the second round of the UEFA Europa League 2012–13 season against the Slovak ŠK Slovan Bratislava. The first leg was played in Bratislava and ended in 1–1 draw.[33] The second leg ended with a goaless draw which resulted Videoton's qualification for the third round.[34] In the first leg of the third round Videoton beat the Belgian KAA Gent 1–0 at the Sóstói Stadion.[35] The only goal was scored by Nikolic in the 78th minute. The second leg was won by 3–0 by Videoton at the Jules Ottenstadion.[36] The goals were scored by Oliveira and Nikolić (2). At the play-off stage of the Europa League 2012–13 Videoton played the first leg against the Turkish Trabzonspor at the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium. The match finished with a goalless draw.[37] On 28 August 2012, Viktor Orbán, the Prime Minister of Hungary, stated that Videoton are on the brink of a big international success and he has a feeling of déjà vu since Videoton played in the UEFA cup final in 1985.[38] On 30 August 2012 Videoton received Trabzonspor, the result was a goalless draw after extra time and the penalty shootout was won by Videoton 4–2. Videoton thus reached the group stages of the UEFA Europa League 2012–13.[39] On 30 August 2012, which coincided with the 42nd birthday of the manager, Sousa said: "the qualification for the group stages of the Europa League was the most beautiful birthday of my life".[40] On 20 September Videoton played their first Europa League group match against K.R.C. Genk at the Cristal Arena in Genk, Belgium. Videoton's inexperience at the European level was ruthlessly exploited by Genk and the Belgian club won the match by 3–0.[41]

On 4 September 2012 (the 2nd matchday) Videoton hosted the Portuguese Sporting Clube de Portugal in the Europa League, which was very exciting due to the fact that Videoton have Portuguese a manager as Sousa and former Sporting players such as Caneira and Renato Neto. In the first half Vinícius, Oliveira and Nikolić scored and after a goalless second half the team celebrated one of the biggest triumphs in Videoton's modern history.[42] On 25 October 2012 Videoton defeated FC Basel 2–1 at home therefore they extended their unbeaten European run in Székesfehérvár to nine matches.[43][44] On 28 October Videoton beat reigning Hungarian League champions Debrecen 3–1 at home.[45] On 8 November Basel beat Videoton at the St. Jakob-Park, Basel, Switzerland.[46] The only goal was scored in the 80th minute by Streller. On 22 November Videoton hosted K.R.C. Genk and lost to the Belgian club by a goal in the 19th minute by Barda.[47] The last group match was due to be played on 6 December, however due to heavy rain it was postponed and played the day after on 7 December. At the Estádio José Alvalade, Lisbon, Portugal, Sousa's team lost to 2–1 to Sporting C.P. Sporting took the lead in the 65th minute by a goal from Labyad which was equalized by Sándor in the 80th minute. However, just after 2 minutes Sporting took the lead again by a goal from Viola. The final result meant that Videoton was eliminated from the 2012–13 season of the Europa League. All in all, Videoton could gain 6 points in 6 matches.

On 7 January 2013 Sousa resigned as the coach of the club due to personal reasons.[48] On 21 January 2013 Videoton appointed José Gomes as the new manager of the club. Previously, Gomes was the assistant coach of Porto, Benfica, Málaga and Panathinaikos.[49]

On 19 February 2013, the agreement with the Hungarian League club Videoton FC was announced on the website of the Anderlecht, however it was not confirmed by the Hungarian club until 20 February 2013.[50][51] Roland Juhász joined Videoton on a loan deal until the end of the 2012–13 season.

On 4 July 2013 Videoton hosted Mladost Podgorica in the first round of the UEFA Europa League 2013–14 season. The first leg ended in a 2-1 victory for the home team.[52] In the second tie Videoton lost to 1-0 which resulted their early exit from the European contest.[53]

Supporters and rivalries[edit]

The supporters of the club are based in Székesfehérvár, in Fejér County, Hungary. One of the group of supporters is the Red Blue Devils which is considered the main ultras of the team (there are smaller groups like Red-Blue City, Sóstói Hableányok, G-pont). Videoton FC is in rivalry with the most famous Hungarian clubs such as Ferencváros, Újpest, Győri ETO, Haladás and Debrecen. The club does not have a local rival since they are the only first league club based in Fejér County (the county's second most populated city is Dunaújváros, but Dunaferr is no longer existing). Between 1997–1999 Videoton's local rival was Gázszer FC which was based in Agárd, Fejér County.

Videoton has a selection of celebrity supporters such as the Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán.[54]

Grounds[edit]

Main article: Stadion Sóstói

The multi-purpose stadium of the club is located in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. The name of the stadium is Sóstói Stadion which originates from neighbouring Sósto (in English Salt Lake). Its capacity is 14,300 (all seated) and it was opened in 1967. The record attendance was in 1985 when Videoton FC was playing with the Spanish giant Real Madrid in the first leg of the final of the UEFA Cup 1984–85.
The first ground of the club could be found in the Berényi Street. On 26 September 1946, the first match was played at the Berényi Street Ground. Videoton played its matches here from 1950 to 1959. From 1959 the team played on a grass turf until 1967. The club moved to the Sóstói Stadion three times. The first era spent at the stadium was between 1948–1950 and 1959–1962. In 1967 the club moved there permanently.

In 2007, the academy of the team was founded in Felcsút, the village where Viktor Orbán, the Prime Minister spent his childhood. Videoton FC bought the team of Felcsút, which was played in the NB II and the team of the academy (named after Ferenc Puskás) competes in the Second League since that. The team is called Videoton-Puskás Ferenc Labdarúgó Akadémia (or Videoton II). Videoton-PFLA plays in Felcsút.

Ferenc Puskás Football Academy[edit]

For more details on this topic, see Ferenc Puskás Football Academy.

Ferenc Puskás Football Academy or simply Puskás Academy is a youth team of Videoton.[55] One of the first talents of the academy was Ádám Gyurcsó who debuted in the national team of Hungary. The academy organises the Puskás Cup which is a youth tournament held every year.[56][57] The first time it was held in 2008 with the participation of former clubs of Ferenc Puskás such as Real Madrid C.F., Budapest Honvéd FC, Panathinaikos F.C..[58] From 2009 the academy invites two more participants from Europe such as Ferencvárosi TC and Slovan Bratislava in 2009,[59] AC Milan in 2010.[60]

Colours, badge and nicknames[edit]

The colours of the club are blue and red, representing the colours of the coat of arms of Székesfehérvár. The club used different crests and badges from their founding in 1941. The crests also indicate the changes of the name of the club, however, the colours were always the same i.e. blue and red. In the early 2000s, the club was named FC Fehérvár, which was changed to Videoton FC in 2009. The most famous nickname of the club is Vidi.

The badge (which is used since 2009) is blue and red, and in the centre the castle refers to the symbol of the town: "vár" from "Székesfehérvár" means castle. The name and the year of the founding can also be seen on the badge.
