PM Orbán Opens Football Academy In Serbia
Sports, especially football, are “central Europe’s common language”, the Hungarian prime minister said at the opening ceremony of the TSC Football Academy in Bačka Topola (Topolya), in northern Serbia’s Vojvodina province.

Viktor Orbán called sports a “natural link” between peoples of the region. He added that nations that cooperate would become stronger, while the ones reluctant to do so will be weak and “fall apart”.

“Serbs and Hungarians have opted to cooperate”, he said, adding that the new football facility was “only the beginning”.
