The Hungarian National Team, going for their third consecutive European Championship in a row, got placed into Group A. They will start their campaign against Switzerland, then face host nation Germany and Scotland, in that order.
Hungary won their Euro 2024 qualifying group unbeaten and ended the entire year without losing a single game. The National Team gave very little opportunity for the small minority of contrarians, actively rooting against them, to gloat.
Securing a spot in the 2024 UEFA European Championship marks a historic achievement for the Hungarian national football team, as it is the first time since the memorable 1985 campaign that they have qualified for a major tournament without the need for playoffs.
The new national stadium opened its door exactly four years ago today—its inaugural game was an international football friendly between Hungary and Uruguay. Since then, it has seen many great clashes and has routinely been filled to the brim with fans in the past few years.
Israel had to postpone their last two European Championship qualifiers last month due to the Hamas attacks.

This is not the first time Hungary provides a temporary home turf for a foreign football team.
