Currently the Hungarian Olympic Committee numbers 154 athletes, and this can increase further as qualification only closes in early July for track and field athletes and swimmers.

The president of MOB said about the cooperation between Magyar Telekom and the Hungarian Olympic Committee, being of key importance: „Sponsors are needed for the successful operation of the Hungarian Olympic Committee and the successful preparation of the Hungarian Team, if the government considers and funds sports as a strategic area. As the Platinum level sponsor of the Hungarian Team, Telekom is a key partner of the Hungarian Olympic movement. I trust that this beneficial cooperation continues at least until the Budapest Olympics.”

Supporting the Hungarian Olympic movement is eminently important among sport sponsorship activities of Telekom – was said at the press conference. „We are especially proud that Magyar Telekom – as Platinum sponsor – supports the preparation of the Hungarian team already for the sixth time. This year we applied technology for fans to send their messages directly to Olympic athletes heading for Rio, through the Telekom Cheering heart solution” – said Christopher Mattheisen, CEO of Magyar Telekom.
