On 16th June 1885, the founders of the club appointed the leading policy of UTE with a triple watchword: „Unity, Soundness, Union”. Újpest FC is the football team of the oldest sports club, which has been existing without a brake. At first, it was only gymnastics, then came fencing and athletics to the profile of the Újpesti Torna Egylet. Football started in Újpest in 1899. The best championship series was reached by Újpest (under the name Újpesti Dózsa) was from 1967 to 19880. During these 14 seasons, Újpest won 9 championship gold, became runners up for 4 times, and 1 time won bronze medal.
