Mayor of Budapest Tarlós unveiled a blue plaque to mark a charity match in 1967.

The Mayor of Budapest István Tarlós unveiled a blue plaque to mark Ferenc Puskás’ charity game in Liverpool with Ambassador Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky and Ambassador György Szöllősi. In 1967 one of the world’s greatest footballers arrived here to play at a non-league ground helping raise funds for the local Bankfield House community centre. Four decades later Holly Park was demolished to make way for Liverpool South Parkway station where a permanent reminder of the game was positioned thanks to the effort led by the former Hungarian Honorary Consul in Liverpool, Dr Andras Zsigmond. Mayor Tarlós continued his official visit meeting Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region.
