HistoryEdit

Kisvárda FC, later known as Várda SE, was founded in 1911 as Kisvárdai Sport Egyesület (KSE). The officials of the village supported the new club by donating a pitch next to the market place.[1] The financial support came from the merchants of the village, who helped a lot in the early stages of the club.[2] In 1953, their present-day ground, the Várkerti sporttelep was built.

The club was reestablished on 26 October 1971.[3]

Since the 2013–14 season, the official name of the club is Kisvárda-Master Good FC.[4]

In the 2017-18 Nemzeti Bajnokság II, Kisvárda finished second and were promoted to the 2018-19 Nemzeti Bajnokság I.

On 21 July 2018, the first Nemzeti Bajnokság I match was played against 2017-18 Nemzeti Bajnokság I title-holders Videoton FC at the Pancho Aréna. The match ended with a 4–0 defeat.[5]

On 30 July 2018, Elemér Kondás was sacked after two consecutive defeats in the 2018-19 Nemzeti Bajnokság I season.[6] The next coach was László Dajka, whom Kisvárda stayed in the NB I for the next (2019/2020) season.

The end of the season Dajka left the club and his position received Vasile Miriuță.[7]

Kisvárda were eliminated by Ferencváros in the round of 16 of the 2018–19 Magyar Kupa season on 1–3 aggregate.[8]

StadiumEdit

The old grounds, Várkert Sportpálya, were next to the market place, on Anarcsi út (Anarcsi road). It was able to host up to 1000 supporters.[9]
The current grounds, Várkert sporttelep, were established in 1953. The stadium is able to hold 2,000 people. The stadium's highest official attendance was 5,000, for a league match between Kisvárdai SE and Nyíregyházi VSSC on 1 April 1979.[10]

The new stadium, Várkerti Stadion, was opened on 11 August 2018. The first match was played against Ferencváros in the 2018–19 Nemzeti Bajnokság I season. The match ended with a 2–0 victory for Ferencváros.[11]
