Armin Salimi, Captain Of Inter Budapest FC
We established the team last year in August, and we took part in 3 competitions,Budapest International Football League (BIFL), the BIFL cup competition and the Danubian League tournament which is on a smaller scale than other main tournaments, but we won the Danubian league last year

This year we are hoping to rebuild the team and be ready for the start of the new season, as the 2019-2020 season came to an end early due to COVID-19 pandemic.

We are holding training sessions at the moment and many players are eager to join the team, as we have always been an international, multicultural club and we build friendships and close bonds in the team and try to even help our fellow expats as much as possible.
