500 days since the opening of the MOL Arena Sosto

The new modern Arena in Szekesfehervar was officially handed over before the NB I match against Ujpest FC.

It was exactly 500 days ago on the 21st November 2018 that the first league game was played at the MOL Arena Sosto. The visitors were Ujpest FC and we look back at events with the stadium. 

Roland Juhasz scored the very first league goal at the new stadium
That came in the above mentioned game on the 21st November 2018. Ujpest FC provided the opposition at the MOL Arena Sosto. There were several events laid on ahead of the 19:00pm kick off. Those included an impressive light show and a live concert performed on a make shift stage at the corner of the stadium. Wellhello played several hits as the crowd started to arrive and take their seats. Over 400 dancers from the city also performed on the pitch. A laser show followed before a speech was given by the local Mayor, Andras Cser-Palkovics. Finally the Hungarian national anthem was played just before match official Sandor Ando-Szabo blew his whistle to kick off the game. Club legends Jozsef Kovacs and Laszlo Karsai helped to start proceedings at kick off with 11,251 supporters packed inside. 

The two sides did not create too many chances in the 90 minutes as several battles dominated the game. The key moment arrived on 58 minutes. A mistake at the back from visiting defender Litauszki was pounced on by Scepovic, but Bojovic managed to get back to put the ball out for a corner. That corner brought the very first goal at the new stadium: Milanov took it and found the head of Roland Juhasz, who made no mistake in finding the back of the net. The team captain celebrated in his normal way and it proved to be the winning goal against Ujpest FC.

There have been 25 league games played at the MOL Arena Sosto - Hodzic has scored the most goals and Kovacsik has played in each game.
The 500 days since the opening of the stadium have brought 25 league matches at the MOL Arena Sosto. Those have produced 16 wins, 3 draws and 6 defeats. There have been 45 Vidi goals and 28 conceded at the other end. The match against DVTK brought the most goals with 5 scored in the opponents goal. There have also been three matches that have seen a four goal winning margin. They were against MTK, Kaposvar and ZTE.


Those 500 days have also seen Armin Hodzic score the most goals in the NB I at the new modern stadium. The Bosnian striker has notched 9 goals and those included two goals in games against Kaposvar and DVTK. He also did the same against Kisvarda. Keeper Adam Kovacsik has played in each of those 25 league games. He has managed to keep a clean sheet in 7 of those matches. 

Petryak has both scored for Vidi and an opponent at the MOL Arena Sosto
The first conceded goal at the MOL Arena Sosto came on the 18th December in a match against Ferencvaros. It was scored by current Vidi player Ivan Petryak. He would go on to join Vidi and score for the red and blues 14 months later. He also scored the first hatrick at the new stadium in a game against ZTE. That impressive fete came in just 13 minutes. He became the 22nd Vidi player to score 3 goals in a game.

We have not conceded a goal at the MOL Arena Sosto in the Hungarian Cup
The 500 days have also seen 5 Hungarian Cup matches played at home. We have won all five of those and scored 12 goals without conceding a single goal. The first Hungarian Cup match was against Taksony back in February last year. It ended up being a 3-0 win for Vidi. Szabolcs Huszti scored the first ever cup goal at the MOL Arena Sosto.

We have gone on to beat Ferencvaros (2-0), DVSC (1-0) and in this seasons competition, Ujpest (1-0) and ZTE (5-0). The latter was probably the best result as Vidi scored 5 times against the blue and whites to turn around a 2-0 first leg defeat.
