New record set as 12 hours teqball match takes place in Budapest

A new record was set in the home of teqball on 11 July, as the longest teqball match took place in Budapest ahead of the UEFA Euro 2020 final between Italy and England. 

Starting at 9 am local time and lasting for the next 12 hours, finishing just before the UEFA Euro 2020 final kicked off, hundreds of participants took part in the landmark occasion. The teqball match was held in the UEFA Festival Fan Zone next to Heroes’ Square in the Hungarian capital. 

The Fan Zone was located at City Park Ice Rink and Boating, next to the iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site, where fans enjoyed teqball and a range of other activities throughout the tournament. 

Leading Hungarian teqball players, including top 10 ranked singles player Martin Csereklye, as well as rising stars Ádám Bakó, Milán Szabó, and Bence Forgács, were in attendance throughout the day. They helped coordinate the match and taught newcomers the basic skills of the world’s fastest-growing sport.

FITEQ congratulates everyone involved in the record-breaking match, particularly due to the adverse weather conditions at various points throughout the day!
