During the summer the club decided to release Szandra Szöllösi-Zácsik from her contract (reasons kept secret by both parts) and parallel with that Szucsánszki announced her come-back, postponing her baby-project with another year. The club called back Noémi Háfra, a young, talented prospect from the loan (she played in MTK last season).
