Vasas SC is one of Hungary's major sports clubs. Most of its facilities are situated in Budapest's 13th district in the north of the town. Members of the Hungarian Union of Iron Workers founded the club as Vas-és Fémmunkások Sport Clubja, the "Sport Club of Iron and Steel Workers", on 16 March 1911. The club colours are red and blue.

The club is internationally best known for its successful football and water polo departments, which have won many national and international competitions. But also athletes from other departments have won many Olympic gold medals as well as international and national championships.

The club’s women's handball team has for 15 times been crowned Hungarian champions, and in 1982 won the Handball European Cup.
