In the Summer of 2010, George Rohonczy, a lacrosse player from New York, contacted the Budapest Blax Club with the intention of building a national team. At that point, Hungary was not a member of any international lacrosse federation. He contacted the European Lacrosse Federation (ELF) and made a presentation for Hungary’s acceptance as a member. It was at the general assembly meeting in Manchester, England, during the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Lacrosse Championships, that Hungary was recognized as a member of the ELF and soon after was recognized by the FIL as an associate member nation. All the hard work put into making The Hungarian Lacrosse Federation came together.
