Up to 20,000 Hungarian football fans expected to support national team in France
Budapest, November 23 (MTI) – Between 15,000 and 20,000 Hungarian football fans could travel to France next year to support the national team in the European Championship, daily Magyar Nemzet said on Monday.
Gabor Szabados, a sports economist, told the paper that 60-70 percent of the fans would travel to France by car or bus. The trip, including transport, lodging and tickets, will cost them at least 50,000-60,000 forints (EUR 193) apiece, although they could easily spend as much as 180,000-200,000 forints, he added.
After defeating Norway in a pair of playoffs earlier in November, Hungary’s national team made its way to the European Championship for the first time since 1972.
