To get a clear picture of MAC hockey and the MAC Hockey Academy you have to go back to 1963 when the Központi Sportiska (Central Sports School) added hockey to the sports that they worked with. This would later become Liget SE and eventually Népstadion Szabadidő Egyesület. In 1993 NSZE merged with Magyar Atheltikai Club, which had been resurrected in 1988 to form the hockey club MAC Népstadion. After the youth system had produced national team players such as Balázs Sebők and krisztián Nagy with more and more players moving on to play professional hockey, it was time to have a senior team to where these graduating players can move on to.
With the team only in the second year in the MOL League MAC hockey actually has a rich tradition as a number of current MOL League and Hungarian national players played in the MAC colors in the 1980s, 1990s 2000s and today.
The current home of MAC Budapest is the recently renovated Tüskecsarnok that sits just off the Danube bank on the Buda side of the Hungarian capital. MAC joins Ferencvárosi TC and UTE as the third professional hockey team in the city. With the addition of MAC to the city rivalry the hockey fans of Budapest always have a game to go between the three teams.
