MTK joins forces with Resysten to allow safe return of fans
Resysten, a company that manufactures an antimicrobial coating that protects surfaces from the spread of COVID-19 and other pathogens for up to 12 months, has announced that it has teamed up with MTK Budapest, one of Hungary’s oldest football clubs, to coat the most commonly used areas of the Hidegkuti Nándor Stadium, allowing fans to safely reconnect with their team.
The award-winning solution, developed in Hungary, is already present in 35 countries and is extensively used in public hospitals and transport networks, as well as by private sector customers ranging from food supply chains, gyms, schools, and a wide array of manufacturing industries.
The coating has also received official approval and recommendation from the Hungarian Football Federation (MLSZ). Its president, Sándor Csányi, said in a statement: "The Hungarian Football Federation supports the health and wellbeing of both our employees and football fans, which is now even more important than ever in all our activities, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Having thoroughly checked Resysten’s credentials and success stories, I am convinced that the technology offered by the company will provide effective protection to the football family. I also strongly believe that operators of stadiums and other sports facilities in Hungary should use Resysten."

Other early adopters include Budapest’s Metro transport network (including all 27 km of its escalator handrail) as well as Hungary’s public hospitals. Resysten’s latest customers also include VT-Arriva, Audi, Auchan, T-Mobile, Mylan Pharmaceutical, Philip Morris International, Stadler, Cognizant, Europart and the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague.
