Supporters and Rivalries

DAC fans in match against AS Tren?ín, on 19 november 2016

DAC supporters are called YBS (Yellow Blue Supporters), biggest rivals are ?K Slovan Bratislava and FC Spartak Trnava. DAC supporters maintain friendly relations with fans of the Hungarian Ferencváros.[5] The main ultras group, YBS, usually display a banner stating " Dunaszerdahely", the Hungarian name of Dunajska Streda, in the home end and sing chants in Hungarian, like the Hungarian anthem Himnusz or the popular song Nélküled, which is usually sung by performers before kick off. The Hungarian Tricolour is also usually displayed on the stands of MOL Aréna by the fans. The preferred use of the Hungarian language from fans and club officials, however, has caused debate in the Slovak society. Slovak National Party MP Du?an Tittel stated in a Parliament session that <<Going to Dunajska Streda to watch a football game when 9,000 sing the Hungarian anthem, I don't think you'd like it>>, promoting a bill to make an offense the singing of foreign national anthems. <<We will sing and will pay the fines>>replied Oszkár Világi, the president of DAC, followed by club spokesmen Krisitan Nagy's declarations: << My family has always spoken Hungarian. If someone has an issue with that then it's their problem>>. [6]

Huk to Piast Gliwice and ?ubomír ?atka to Lech Pozna? booth in 2019), American Major League Soccer (Matej Oravec to Philadelphia Union in 2020).
