Water Polo Fan Tram has started operating
In order to celebrate the approaching European Water Polo Championship in Budapest, the tricolour-clad Fan Tram is running again from Friday.
It is easy to recognize the tram: the floor is decorated with waves of water; there are clouds on its roof and “Go Hungary” notices painted on the seats. On the sides of the tram the current sports news and photographs about water polo are to be seen.
It way two years ago, at the time of the Olympic Games in London, that Hungarian sports fans could frist travel on the Fan Tram. The mobile fan club on the tram at the time of the London Olympic Games proved to be a unique initiative and was very popular with the passengers who supported the team. The spectacular tricolour-clad tram brings water polo – and thus all sports – even closer to people, who can support both the women’s and the men’s team while sitting on the tram.
Fan Tram operating until the end of July
The Water Polo Fan Tram will be operating on three tram lines from Friday till the end of July in Budapest: on line 24 between Közvágóhíd and Keleti railway station, on line 50 between Határ út and Béke tér in Pestszentlőrinc, and on line 61 between Hűvösvölgy and Móricz Zsigmond körtér. The displays set up on the trams present the players of both the women’s and the men’s team to the passengers who can also follow the events of the European Championship which starts on 14 July. Reports of the previous achievements of the Hungarian water polo teams will be shown, including the victory of the men’s team at the FINA World Championship last year.
