Dunaújvárosi Kohász KA or DKKA (in English: Dunaújvárosi Kohász Handball Academy), formerly known as Dunaferr, is a Hungarian women's handball club from Dunaújváros, that plays in the Nemzeti Bajnokság I.



The team enjoyed their best spell between the mid-1990s and the mid-2000s, during which period they won five Hungarian championship and five Hungarian Cup titles, and set a unique record of winning all three major continental competitions. Kohász, as the fans call the club, first won the EHF Cup Winners' Cup in 1995 and captured the EHF Cup title three years later.

In 1999 they lifted the EHF Champions League trophy as well, after beating Slovenian side Krim Ljubljana in the finals. Dunaferr, playing in front of their fanatic fans, have secured a two goal advantage for the rematch, which ended in a 26–26 draw, and that was just enough for the Hungarians to celebrate a famous success.[1] To make the silverware collection complete, they also took the EHF Champions Trophy in that year.

Dunaújvárosi Kohász KA[edit]

Following the decision of the Dunaújváros City Council on 28 October 2010, Bojana Radulovics has been named to manage the women's section of the newly forming handball academy, which is set to open in September 2011 and will run in co-operation with the College of Dunaújváros. The Academy is operated by Dunaújvárosi Főiskola – Dunaújvárosi Kézilabda Akadémia Nonprofit Kft. (DF-DKA). In the autumn of 2011 Eszter Mátéfi joined the staff. Dunaferr NKSE could not undertake the operation of the NB I adult team longer, so it was a real danger that professional handball in Dunaújváros would totally disappear. The DF-DKA announced that it will take over the senior team and enter it in the NB I/B championship. The Hungarian Handball Federation did not support this, but the club has offered the 12th place in the first division. The team started the 2012/2013 season as Dunaújvárosi Kohász Kézilabda Akadémia.

Notable former players[edit]


Dunaújvárosi Kohász KA II[edit]

Dunaújvárosi Kohász KA II is the junior team of Dunaújvárosi Kohász KA women's handball club. They compete in the Nemzeti Bajnokság I/B, the second-tier league in Hungary. Although they play in the same league system as their senior team, rather than a separate league, they are ineligible for promotion to the Nemzeti Bajnokság I, since junior teams cannot play in the same division as their senior side.
