Balázs Fürjes described the IAAF World Cup in Budapest as a global success for the team

Balázs Forges, co-chair of the organizing committee, described the IAAF World Championships in Budapest, which concluded on Sunday, as a global success of cooperation.

The sports leader of MTI indicated on Monday morning that the largest sporting event in the history of Hungary has become a global success in all aspects, which is supported by the numbers.

He stressed that “athletes from 195 countries participated in the World Cup. Such global participation in sports can only be achieved in the Summer Olympic Games, and the World Championships for other sports cannot do that.” He then stated that more than 2,200 athletes participated. Competitions, coaches and team members numbered more than five thousand.

“During the World Cup, 2,500 Hungarian volunteers helped serve the fans and competitors, helping to hold the World Cup successfully. Fans from all continents of the world, from more than 120 countries, came to Budapest,” he concluded.

He confirmed that the number of tickets sold exceeded 400,000 tickets, which was not what even the International Sports Federation Western Australia expected.

“Over the nine days, the average viewership for the evening finals exceeded 95 percent, the majority of the finals were sold out, and on the first day, in the qualifiers for hammer thrower Pence Halach, all tickets were sold out. “We actually went out in the morning, which is unprecedented,” he stressed. However, television broadcasts were watched by more than one billion people around the world for a long period of time.

He said Hungary also benefited from the World Cup. He noted that all the guests, athletes, team members, official guests, fans, journalists and workers who came to Budapest spent more than half a million guest nights in Budapest hotels and spent several billion forints in Hungary.

“The World Cup brought the whole nation together, strengthening Hungarians’ self-esteem, self-confidence and belonging. “The secret to the success was cooperation and teamwork,” explained Balázs-Forges, who believes the success is down to all of Hungary: everyone contributed their part.
