What was fabulous two years ago became a reality last year, and according to the CEO, Hungarians in the Vojvodina football center still dare to dream bigger.
They live the dream on Poplar. The Serbian Hungarian diaspora football team is preparing for the third season in the history of the Serbian Super League, and after the first two extremely successful seasons, the Hungarians of Vojvodina want more and more.
“I think it is no exaggeration to say that we are among the top teams in the Serbian league” – Szabolcs Palágyi, CEO of TSC, proudly declared to the MOL Team. “A realistic goal is to count on us around the podium, the 3-4. I clearly think our team is strong enough for this place. ”
It is not a fairy tale, it is a TSC story
While it used to be dreamy for the Topolics to be in the first division, this year the TSC, which finished 5th last season, also has a secure place in the Serbian championship, which has been reduced from 20 teams to 16. Moreover, according to Palágyi, even the number of sixteen may be a lot.
“There was no need for a twenty-team championship in a small country like Serbia. The league has been long and protracted, not to mention that teams who may not have hit that level have played in the Super League year after year. Let’s add, Serbian football’s infrastructure is in pretty bad shape, which is why it’s good to have resources distributed among fewer clubs, because that might leave money for improvements on first-class teams. ”
“The strengths of the cutting edge have not changed with the headcount reduction, the two Belgrade teams, Crvena Zvezda and Partizan, continue to stand out from the field, as both have strong backgrounds, plenty of quality players, legions and serious opportunities. Behind them, we and Cukaricki and Vojvodina, I think these three teams will fight for the podium. ”
“We certainly won’t have an easy time. In the first year we surprised the field, no one knew us, they couldn’t prepare for us, and we rode that advantage very well, so we finished in 4th place and got to Europe as well. It’s no coincidence that the second year is said to be the hardest, compared to that – adding that the season was much harder due to the pandemic – we were barely behind our performance a year earlier and although we can’t play in Europe this year, we ranked 5th. ”Palágyi explained.
“I would say our first season was fabulous, but in the second we were able to prove that what happens at Topolya is not a fairy tale, but a reality,” he added with a smile.
System has become the TSC
The CEO feels the team has been well prepared, which has also been helped by not giving a player to the European Championships. Serbia didn’t make it out, so he only played friendly matches, with TSC player Petkovic taking part, the others getting a longer break after a strenuous, covid-dominated league season.
“The most important decision of the summer was to change the game system for our team, to switch to three-defense play. “Of course, it also affected our certificates, we bought two defenders and got rid of three expiring footballers. We also tried to strengthen the balance between young, talented players and routine footballers with certificates, and I think we were successful. the transfer season, but we are ready, ”Palágyi explained.
“As before, this year’s transfer season didn’t just look at who is what kind of footballer. For us, athletic virtues are very important, and in recent years we have already proven that footballers can be helped by people from whom the public does not expect much. This year, we also tried to map the selected footballers humanely, and I am sure that our certificates will come true. ”
At the end of August, the Blue Outlaws will move
The Topolics also started their third first class season in a sublet, the nearby Zenta (the 2021/22 season started successfully with the 2-0 defeat of Novi Pazar), but the moment is already approaching when the team’s enthusiastic camp, Blue Betyars can take possession of Serbia’s newest stadium, the Topolya Arena.
“We are planning the handover by the end of August, the opening match is being negotiated for the time being, we may hand over the stadium with a league match, but we may also be able to organize a gala match during the national team break.” said the CEO.
“The stadium is an important milestone for our club in many ways anyway. Firstly, it will be the most beautiful and modern facility in Serbia, and secondly, we will strive to have the stadium not only on match days for the fans, but throughout the week. We try to incorporate the facility into the lives of the locals through the hotel or the spa. ”
The fresh plans
“I would be happy with the podium,” Palágyi said with a wide smile when the plans for 2022 came up. “The most important thing is that the construction doesn’t stop, the club and the team develop as well.”
We do not only measure success in points, as it is also important to ensure the development of young people leaving our academy, and, together with football in Topolya, our youth training is constantly advancing. ”
“We have set a goal to be in the top four and we want to be well in the Serbian Cup as well. We really want to compete in Europe again next year, or it would be good to get out through the championship or the cup. We don’t chase dreams, we stand on the ground with two feet, but we definitely want to capture what we have in 2021, ”Palágyi concluded.
