Hungarian Football Federation secures new partner on road to Euro 2016

The Hungarian Football Federation (MLSZ) has entered into a partnership with oil and gas producer MOL Group.

The length of the MLSZ’s agreement with the company, which is headquartered in the Hungarian capital of Budapest, was not disclosed.

The company has worked with the MLSZ in the past, having teamed up with the federation on its Bozsik Programme youth initiative in 2013.

“I am confident that we can contribute to a worthy team to represent the country and continue the path we started during the last period,” Hernádi Zsolt, chairman and chief executive of MOL Group, said.

Hungary will compete at this summer’s Uefa Euro 2016 national team tournament in France in what will be the country’s first appearance at a major competition since the 1986 Fifa World Cup in Mexico.
