No matter how good Vasas were, a general weakness of Hungarian football was still detectable: not only Vasas was unfit for a double, but the Cup went to entirely surprising team. Not even from Budapest! The Cup format was unusual as well: instead of traditional ½ finals and final, there was 4-team round robin final stage. At the end, Ferencvaros finished second-placed, one more indication that Fradi were not ready for real achievement. Above them finished DVTK.
Proud Cup winners. No players to speak of, but collective effort paid off. DVTK experienced their 'golden years' after 65 years of suffering. With Vasas champions, the season of 'ironworkers' was completed. With Videoton and Raba ETO steadily performing and DVTK winning the Cup, a change of status quo was detectable – the slow shift of power from Budapest to the industrial provincial towns. It came to full bloom in the first half of the 1980s, but the signs of challenge were already present.
