Supporters and RivalriesEdit

 
DAC fans in match against AS Trenčín, on 19 november 2016

DAC supporters are called YBS (Yellow Blue Supporters), biggest rivals are Slovan Bratislava and Spartak Trnava. DAC supporters maintain friendly relations with fans of the Hungarian Ferencváros Budapest.[5] The YBS usually display a banner stating “Dunaszerdahely”, the Hungarian name of Dunajská Streda, in the home end and chant in Hungarian, including the Hungarian anthem Himnusz or the popular song Nélküled, which is usually sung by performers before kick off. The Hungarian Tricolour is also usually displayed on the stands of MOL Aréna by the fans.

The preferred use of the Hungarian language from fans and club officials, however, has caused debate in the Slovak society. Slovak National Party MP and former football international Dušan Tittel had stated in a Parliament session: "Going to Dunajská Streda to watch a football game when 9,000 sing the Hungarian anthem, I don't think you'd like it", promoting a bill to make an offense the singing of foreign national anthems. DAC President Oszkár Világi and the club's spokesmen Krisztián Nagy had declared that the club will continue to support the fans and such customs, even in defiance of fines.[6]
