History[edit]

Early years (1950–1972)[edit]

Although association football had been present in Pécs since the early 20th century, the predecessor of Pécsi MFC was founded later, in 1950 with the name Pécsi Dózsa. The new club started to compete in the third division and eventually won promotion to the second division in 1953.[3] After spending only two years in the NB II with moderate success, Pécsi Dózsa started the 1950 season in the top flight of the Hungarian football pyramid, after a fusion with Budapest-based club Kőbányai Dózsa. Pécsi Dózsa made its debut in the first division on 27 February 1955, with a 3–0 win against Szombathely.[4] With only one year of hiatus, Pécsi Dózsa was the member of the NB I until 1972, when the club undergone another, more complex fusion with four other local clubs.

From Pécsi Dózsa to Pécsi MSC[edit]

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.[5]

In 2003 Pécs rejoined the first division after two years of exile.[6] Pécs drew with Szombathelyi Haladás and finished first eleven points clear. Tamás Nagy's team lost only three times in 34 matches.
