Budapest, April 30 (MTI) – Hungary’s first standard-sized American football field opened in Szekesfehervar on Saturday with a ceremony attended by US Ambassador Colleen Bell.

The field that measures 120 yards (110 m) long will be home to the Fehervár Enthroners team.

Bell, wearing a Chicago Bears shirt, said in her inauguration speech that Hungary gave several iconic figures to the sport, including Joe Namath, a star of the 1960s and 1970s, Pete and Charlie Gogolak, who raised the sport to a new dimension, and George Stanley Halas, founder of the Chicago Bears.
