Puskás Day — an important day in the international sports industry
The event, named after the Hungarian football legend Ferenc Puskás, was officially opened by Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade in the Hungarian pavilion at Dubai’s World Expo on the 16th of February. The initiative aimed to emphasize Hungary’s commitment to making the country a world-renowned center of sports excellence.
