Our basketball department continues the tradition that started in 2016 and this year, we ask our fans again, to bring a ball to our next game. Our regular fans are aware of the well-known “Bring a ball to kindergarteners in Újbuda!” campaign: once a year, we ask our fans who come to our games (for free) to bring a ball as a “ticket” instead and throw them on the court at halftime. We collect these balls and along with other sports equipment and additional balls take them to kindergartens in Újbuda.
This year, we ask our fans to bring a ball to our game against DVTK on February 1, 2020. at 16.00 hours and “buy” their ticket to the game in the form of a ball!
During the past three years of the program, we donated over 500 balls and sports equipment in the value of over a quarter million Forints to kindergartens in the 11th district. In close cooperation with the Government of Újbuda, our NB1 players personally take these donations to several locations where the experience of giving equals or not exceeds the value of the donations for both the children and the players alike. Playing together is a lasting experience for all involved and our mission continues to be instilling the joy and importance of sports in the youngest generations.
