The Serbian Rugby League Federation in cooperation with the Belgrade Rugby League Federation will  host a Budapest XIII in Belgrade from 30th Septembar to 2nd October. Belgrade XIII will play a friendly versus Budapest XIII in Belgrade, at the Ada Ciganlija 3G pitch on Saturday 1st  October 2011, kick-off at 5pm. This will be the third game for the fledgling Hungary Rugby League in their very short history.  On 31st July 2011 Hungary XIII hosted Belgrade XIII in Hungary, with the latter victorious 44:0.

Jovan Vujosevic, Central Europe Regional Director: “Serbian Rugby League, as a leader in Central Europe, will host Budapest XIII to try to promote rugby league in Hungary. This is the first time that a Hungarian side tours outside Hungary. Hungary was very active in the last few months and this will be the third game of rugby league for a Hungarian side in last three months. I hope that this will push forward develoipment of the sport in Hungary and our ultimate goal will be the formation of the Hungarian Rugby League Federation as an NGB which will lead development in Hungary.“
