"With our agreement with SPORTFIVE, as a company committed to sports, we can now reach not only young talents through our previous partnership with FTC but also the fans themselves, without whom football would not be the same. Our bank is dedicated to strengthening communities and we believe that sports create opportunities for bonding and cooperation. Our goal is to be part of these inspiring and memorable sports events that provide joy and an unforgettable experience to both the participants and the spectators." – said Dr. Zsolt Barna, President and CEO of MBH Bank at the ceremonial signing of the sponsorship contract.

In addition to supporting the departments of Ferencváros, the bank also launched a scholarship program, which provides financial support, financial advice and unique discounts to young athletes. 

"The Ferencvárosi Torna Club has had a strategic relationship with MBH Bank since 2022. Besides supporting young and talented Hungarian athletes from Ferencváros, now there will be also a cooperation in new areas with our club, which clelebrated its 125 years birthday this year. We hope that, just like the previous partnership, the current agreement will be mutually beneficial for both parties. A stable financial background is essential for victories and success on the football pitch, which is mainly provided by our sponsors for the club. Our goal has not changed even after the 35th championship gold medal, the sixth first place in a row, the FTC men's football team will start next year's championship with the intention of winning it again. It is a extraordinary pleasure if we succeed in getting a sponsor who also thinks about the fans of Fradi." - stated Gábor Kubatov, the president of FTC. 

"MBH Bank's leadership skills and experience guarantee that the collaboration will be successful and efficient. I am proud that we have found a very strong partner in an area that was previously unoccupied, enabling us to achieve even higher goals for the club. SPORTFIVE, which has been operating the stadium for 10 years is committed to realizing goals that offer outstanding opportunities and benefits for Ferencvárosi TC. This current agreement is a great opportunity to further increase the already achieved successes and to enhance the reputation of Fradi," said András Igaz, CEO of SPORTFIVE Hungary Ltd.
