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. It has won the Hungarian League twice in 2011 and 2015, Hungarian Cup once, the defunct Hungarian League Cup thrice, and the Hungarian Super Cup twice. It 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 its history came in the mid-1980s when Ferenc Kovács led the club to the final of the UEFA Cup in 1985. It won its first Hungarian League title in 2011 and reached the group stages of the Europa League in the 2012–13 season.[2]

Background[edit]

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]

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 Nemzeti Bajnokság 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 Nemzeti Bajnokság II (second Division of the National Championship) for the 1957–58 season.

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 15th 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.

1980s[edit]

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 (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 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 team Real 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 Sóstói Stadion.[15] Ferenc Kovacs' side then flew out to Madrid for the return leg at the Bernabéu Videoton 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.

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.

2000s[edit]

Andre Alves became top-scorer and champion in 2010
Győr-Videoton in 2004

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 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 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 3–1 in the final.

Videoton FC entered into a joint working relationship with the Puskás Academy in Felcsút.

At the beginning of the Hungarian National Championship 2009–10 season, the club reassumed the Videoton name.[19]

In 2010 Videoton FC were leading the Hungarian National Championship I 2009–10 for many weeks,[20] but in the end their rivals Debrecen won the championship.[21] The team finished second, and qualified for the Europa League.

Stadiums and facilities[edit]

The multi-purpose stadium of the club is located in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. The name of the stadium is Sóstói Stadion which originates from neighbouring Sóstó (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 1948–50 and 1959–62. 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.

Pancho Arena, temporary home of the club

Due to the reconstruction of the Sóstói Stadion Videoton will play their home matches at the Pancho Arena in the 2016–17 Nemzeti Bajnokság I and 2016–17 UEFA Europa League season. The Pancho Arena is located in Felcsút and its main tenant is Nemzeti Bajnokság II club Puskás Akadémia FC. The director of Videoton chose Pancho Arena as their home due to the club's strong ties with Puskás Akadémia. However, the capacity of the Pancho Arena is much smaller than Videoton's original stadium. It is predicted that the club will organise regular shuttle buses before and after match days to transport their supporters.

In 2016, the construction of the new stadium started.

Ownership[edit]

Being the favourite football club of the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, Videoton FC co-operates with Puskás Akadémia FC, Felcsút. From 2010 some of the most wealthy Hungarian millionaires started to appear in the VIP of the team (e.g. Sándor Csányi, president of the Hungarian OTP Bank 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.[69]

Supporters and rivalries[edit]

Videoton supporters at the ETO Park, in Győr (2010).

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 no longer exists). Between 1997–99 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.[70]
