HistoryEdit

One of the oldest sports associations in Hungary was founded as III. kerületi Torna- és Vívóegylet (III District Gymnastics and Fencing Association) on January 24, 1887 in one of the small restaurants in Óbuda. The choice of the name was made in the spirit of the time, athletics, cycling and the rest feel in the "gymnastics" part of the name, while a special emphasis was put on "fencing", which was a major sport in many parts of the world at the time.

The club did not have a football section, and this was formed late, when fotball started to become popular in Budapest. The real beginning of football in Óbuda can be traced back to October 31, 1897, when members of the two most important associations in this district of Budapest, the III. Kerületi TVE (founded in and Óbudai Torna Egylet (the Óbuda Gymnastics Association, founded in 1872) decided to create the Budai Football Csapat (Buda Football Club).[1] This "marriage" ended with the founding of III Kerületi TVE's own football team on April 30, 1899. It is worth noting that either the date 1897 or 1899 is considered as official starting date of the football club nowadays.[2]

III. District TVE made its debut in Hungary's first division NB I in 1911, and stayed in the highest division without interruption between 1913 and 1937, reaching its greatest successes in the twenties and thirties. In 1931 it defeated Ferencváros 4-1 in the final of the Hungarian Cup, and in 1914 he finished 3rd in the Augusta Cup. In NB I, it was pushed off the podium four times, and finished fourth in 1921, 1925, 1930 and 1933. It took almost six decades for the club to get back to the NB I: in 1996 it was the champion of the NB II East Group. It immediately dropped out again and it got bak to NB I in 1998, and i t dropped out again 4 years later.

In 2000 III. Kerületi TVE's football section merged with Csepel SC and moved the first team to Csepel Island. For the next two years the club played under the Csepel SC name. The youth teams stayed in Óbuda. The football section of Csepel got dissolved in summer 2002 and in 2003 the senior football team re-formed at the club then called III. Kerületi TUE, back in the III district. The team started in the fourth division which the club won undefeated. Since then the team has been playing in the Hungarian third division until 2021, when it got promoted to the NB II once again.
