A little history
104 years ago in 1912 Kispesti AC participated in the Hungarian Cup for the very first time. We made it to the final 16 times and won the trophy 7 times (1926, 1964, 1985, 1989, 1996, 2007, 2009). In 1981 Honvéd came in third and won the bronze medal.
Our largest margin of victory was in 1953, when the Puskás lead team beat Orosháza 18-1, when Kocsis scored seven times, Puskás six times, Czibor and Budai I. twice and Babolcsay once. The title of most goals scored in a single game belongs to Mihály Kozma, who scored 8 times against Hercegszántó.
