HistoryEdit

Early yearsEdit

The club was founded on 16 June 1885 by school teacher János Goll in Újpest, a separate city in those times, just next to the borders of Budapest under the name Újpesti Torna Egylet. It was formed first as a general athletic club, performing gymnastics and fencing, and its motto was "Soundness, Strength, Harmony" (Hungarian: Épség, Erő, Egyetértés). In 1899, a football club was formed in the city of Újpest under the name Újpesti FC and with the same colours, purple and white. The first official match of Újpesti FC was a 1:1 draw on 29 April 1900 against III. Kerületi TVE. In 1901 the two clubs (UTE and Újpesti FC) merged and formed the football division of Újpesti TE and the club joined the second division of the newly formed Hungarian League. Újpest is ever since one of two teams in Hungary that have never missed a season since the beginnings of league games in the country.

Újpest were promoted to the first division in 1904 and they have managed to play on top flight ever since except for the season of 1911–12 when they finished as champions of the second division after a one-year relegation.

The first golden eraEdit

 
Dorog-Újpest in the Hungarian League

The club built the new Megyeri úti stadion in 1922, which marked the opening of a new era of medal collection. The legendary "Fogl-gate" (Fogl-gát in Hungarian), a massive defending formation of brothers Károly Fogl II and József Fogl III for both the national team and Újpest was the key point for the club's successes. From 1926, after the introduction of professional football in Hungary, the football team was playing under the name Újpest FC. The late 20's and 30's brought the first golden age of the club, marked by finishing on top of the Hungarian first division 5 times and international cup success, including two Mitropa Cup titles in 1929 and 1939, and also the Cup of Nations title in 1930. The team finished on one of the first three positions in every season between 1926 and 1942, and played in five cup finals during the 20's and 30's.

Újpest gave 5 players for the World Cup of 1938 to silver medalist Hungary including György Szűcs, Antal Szalay, István Balogh I, Jenő Vincze, and the rising star of Hungarian football, Gyula Zsengellér.

After World War IIEdit

The first years after World War II saw the second golden era of Újpest, and saw the club on the top of the championship three times in a row, once even giving 9 players to the Hungarian national team. Players like Ferenc Szusza, Béla Egresi, Sándor Balogh II, István Nyers or Mihály Nagymarosi were setting records of winning 30 consecutive games, or scoring 187 goals in one single season.

In 1950 the communist government chose Újpest as official club of the police and renamed them Budapesti Dózsa (after György Dózsa), a fairly common practice in Eastern Bloc countries (except that in other places "police clubs" were all named Dinamo/Dynamo) and two decades of moderate league and cup success followed. In 1951, defender Sándor Szűcs, after being executed by the communist government for high treason during a secret pre-arranged trial, became a martyr of the club. As a result of the less successful years, Mihály Tóth was just one of two Újpest players in 1954 World Cup squad, and the only one to play in the final. During the 1956 revolution, the club renamed itself Újpesti TE; however, after the revolution was pulled down by the Soviets, the Hungarian government – unlike for FTC or MTK – didn't let the club use their old name. This resulted the name Újpesti Dózsa, which was referring both to the district and to the police. After 13 years without a league title, Újpest became champions of Hungary in 1959–60, and reached the Cup Winners' Cup semi-final in 1962 with the help of the new star, János Göröcs.

With the fall of the communist government and the termination of state sponsorship there came financial problems as well, just like for all other Hungarian football teams. Professionalism was once again introduced in Hungarian football in 1998, thus the club changed their name again, but this time to the well known Újpest FC. However, hard times reached the club soon, and the key players left Újpest due to the lack of money. The situation became better after 2001, when the Szusza Ferenc Stadion went over a complete renovation, and the club's new owners invested more money in football. In December 2001 Róbert Glázer was appointed as the new coach of the club.[87] Their efforts resulted in a new Cup beating Szombathelyi Haladás in the final with a last-minute goal in [88] and Supercup title in 2002, but the team finished in the middle of the league table for years.

In the qualifying round of the 2002-03 UEFA Cup season Újpest beat KÍ Klaksvík 3–2 on aggregate.[89] In the first round Újpest faced with the French Paris Saint-Germain F.C. and lost to them 4–0 on aggregate.[90]

With three silver medals won in 2004, 2006 & 2009, Újpest is once again back to the top teams of Hungary. Today the club's financial situation is relatively stable, with one of the largest budgets in the country. They are currently strong contenders in the domestic league, but international appearances are still few and far between.

In August 2006 former Újpest legend Ferenc Szusza died at the age of 82. He is still considered as one of the best players ever of the club.[91] Szusza scored 393 goals in 463 matches. The club named their stadium Szusza Ferenc Stadion in order to honour the feat of their former player.

In 2006 the club appointed the former Hungary and Malaysia national football team coach Bertalan Bicskei as the new manager of the club.[92]

In April 2010, Willie McStay resigned from his coaching position after six defeats in a row.[93]

In July 2011, the former Real Madrid and Netherlands coach Leo Beenhakker was appointed as the new sporting director of the club.[94][95]

On 5 March 2013 Jos Daerden was removed from his position after a 6–0 defeat from Paks in the 2012–13 season of the Hungarian League.

Újpest won their 9th Hungarian Cup on 25 May 2014 against DVTK in Budapest. The game remains memorable due to the tense penalty shootout after a 1–1 draw. This success has been achieved after twelve trophyless years in the club's history.

StadiumEdit

Újpest's home stadium is Szusza Ferenc Stadion, which has been their home since the opening on 17 September 1922. It was known as Megyeri úti stadium until it was named after the club's legendary player, Ferenc Szusza in October 2003. After the renovations which took place in 2000 and 2001 the ground can hold 13,501 spectators.

OwnershipEdit

On 3 December 2008, it was revealed by BBC Sport that the Premier League club Wolverhampton are considering an alliance with Újpest. Jez Moxey, the Chief executive officer of Wolves said that "We have had some initial discussions in Budapest with the officials of Ujpest. We touched on the issues of loaning players, academies and sharing of best practice on and off the field."[97]

Újpest approached Roland Duchâtelet to become the owner of the club. Although Roland refused the club's offer, he suggested his son to be the proprietor of Újpest. Roland Duchâtelet is the owner of the Charlton Athletic F.C., FC Carl Zeiss Jena, AD Alcorcón and former owner of the Standard Liège.

On 19 October 2011, Roderick Duchâtelet, former director of Germinal Beerschot, bought 95% of the shares of the City Budapest Zrt.[98]

Roderick Duchâtelet said that he indtends to bring back the glory of the 1970s.[99]

On 27 October 2011, Csaba Bartha, managing director of Újpest FC, confirmed that the club received 150 million Hungarian forint from Roderick Duchâtelet.[100]

SupportersEdit

Supporters of Újpest are mainly from the fourth district of Budapest, the eponymous Újpest. Due to the success in the 1970s, the club gained supporters from all over Budapest and the country.

On May 4, 2007, Újpest were deprived of three points in the 2006–07 Hungarian League season due to racist chanting during their home match against Debrecen. Újpest's official, Szilárd Dányi said "I would ask all of our supporters to think about all factors when they appraise the situation and try to create an atmosphere at matches so that this never happens again. I discussed the topic with the owner and we decided to accept the decision."[101]

RivalriesEdit

 
Ferencváros-Újpest derby at the Albert Stadion on 1 April 2011

Újpest are in rivalry with several teams from Budapest including Ferencváros, MTK Budapest, Budapest Honvéd and several provincial clubs such as Debrecen and Diósgyőr. Since Újpest have been the third most successful club of the Hungarian football history by winning 20 Hungarian League titles and 9 Hungarian Cup titles and the most successful Hungarian club in the European football competitions in the 1970s every club in the Hungarian League wants to defeat them.

The rivalry with Ferencváros dates back to 1930s when Újpest won their first Hungarian League title. Since then the fixture between the two teams attracts the most spectators in the dometistic league.[107] The matches between the two team often ends in violence which causes big trouble for the Hungarian football. The proposal of personal registration was refused by both clubs.
