I’ve been to a fair few grounds in Budapest over the last year or so, so thought I’d put this district map together. Teams in bold are in the upper leagues or have won league titles in the past.
Space-wise, I only had room for the most notable team in each district (sorry BKV Előre, it’s not you, it’s me). I couldn’t find anything of note in the central districts.
I’ve updated it with a few of the notable historical connections and associations, either from when the clubs were founded or during the communist regime, when clubs such as Honvéd and Újpest were co-opted into being army and police teams.
Update Nov 2021
Added Margitszigeti FC – finally an island team!
Update – Sep 2021
Replaced SZ Építők with Pénzügyőr SE in District II (I’d mixed up Építők’s HQ in District II with their ground in XIII).
Replaced Pestszentimrei with SZAC for notability reasons (Ferenc Deák’s incredible scoring being the main one).
Added III. Kerület in bold to reflect their promotion to NBii.
Thanks to @agendur on Twitter for the update suggestions. I’m always looking for more input, so let me know if you have any ideas let me know. It’s a work-in-progress.
REAC is much more prominent than Testvériség, I think.
Yes, someone else mentioned that one too. It’s a WIP so I may change a few.
