The First NB1 match
Golden Team Era
1974-1984 That time the Diósgyőr felt the gold and the fall of the 2nd division. Veréb, Tatár, Salamon, Oláh, Borostyán, Fekete, Fükő, Váradi, Teodoru and a lot of names who could do anything to the victory. These men had point Diósgyőr of the Soccer-map of Europe.
The 1976/77 season wasn't very memorable: 34 matches, only 32 points, and the team finished 10th, but in the Hungarian Cup the team enjoyed far greater success, going all the way and winning.
Géza Szabó (manager): "Originally we wanted to be in the final eight. We met the Videoton, Olajbányász and the MÁV-DAC in the group. Away we beat the 2nd league teams, which wwasn't easy, because the FC Fehérvár couldn't do it. In the final four we were the "underdog", but this was the thing that helped us (we were peaced). We convinced to coused bad moments of the Ferencvárosi TC, Vasas Bp and Újpest FC. We didn't believe that we could be first, we thought we can beat one of them at home. The final went pretty well. We, in Diósgyőr saw that we can be better with high physical training."
The team won the Hungarian Cup again in 1980, and played final in 1981, but that time the players received silver.
The 1978/79 season saw the team's 1000th goal, 800th 1st division match and bronze medal in the final. That time the arena was full with 25-30 thousand fans, and the team was the brightest star in the soccer-sky. The bronze medal winning team: Veréb-Szántó,Salamon,Váradi,Kutasi-Oláh,Tatár,Görgei-Borostyán,Fükő,Fekete
After the winning the cup in 1977 Diósgyőr played in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. Their first opponent was Beşiktaş. The first match was a 2-0 loss, but 20 000 fans wanted to see the second match. Diósgyőr won 5-0, and overall 5-2, so the team went to the second round. Then Diósgyőr get Europe's best team at that time, Hajduk Split. Diósgyőr lost both matches by a score of 2-1.
Two years later the team went to the UEFA Cup. First Rapid Wien and Dundee United were defeated but 1. FC Kaiserslautern was too much. That is time that English newspapers wrote: Diósgyőr is one of the best teams in Europe.
In 1980, DVTK played again in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, but Celtic F.C. beat DVTK with an overall score of 7-2. After that an era ended in Miskolc.
After the Cup winning, the team spent seven years in the 2nd division. After many coaches, the breakthrough was the second appear of the couch Barnabás Tornyi, because when he take the team, the next year theye were again in the NB1. The most memorable scenes were the winning of the second division championship, and las match of he goalkeeping-legend, György Veréb. At his last match he was 49! years old, and with him the team defeated the Videoton FC, by 4-1. Fans nowadays often speaks of the famous players of that era, the midfielder László Kiser, and the dynamic striker duo, Sándor Kulcsár and Gábor Egressy. In the next season, after a beautiful autumn the team beat the Ferencvárosi TC and the Újpest FC, and began the UEFA Intertoto Cup. But, the club-owners wanted to make soccer without money, and the club disappeared in 2000, because of bankruptcy. In the winter of 1999 most of the players left the club, so it was nearly a miracle, that the team played the spring rounds of the championship.
After the end of the club, the fans made the rebuilt of the team, and with the help of the Bőcs Sport Club, Borsod Volán SE, Monor SE and the government of Miskolc. The first year was in the 7th division, after cooperating with other teams, the club finished in the 3rd division. After an other year, and an other owner the team played in the NB 2, the second division. The result: the team was in the top division in 2004 again. In 2004 the Siófok Balaton FC was replaced here and changed it name Diósgyőri Balaton FC (Diósgyőr and Lake Balaton are about 300 kilometers away from each other). After a new owner the team was again Diósgyőri VTK. Later the owner of the club was the Szeviép constructual company (based in Szeged).
In the 2009–2010 season, the club celebrated its 100th birthday. After the owner left, many problems led to the fact that the there is not enough time and player to the championship. Then the government jumped in, and the club spent the 2009–2010 season at the bottom of the table, and after many problems, the club was relegated to the second division. Now the club is owned by the government of Miskolc and an investment group, Arago ZRt. In the 2010–2011 season, the new management is working to win the championship.
