Total Player of the Year 2017 – Tamás Märcz’s TOP 5 – Juror #20

Märcz Tamás

Tamás Märcz can look back at a very extensive and variable career as a player. Playing competitive water polo for over two decades, he was able to appear for 9 clubs from Hungary, Italy and even Malta. He played for European powerhouses like Eger and Pro Recco, while being a solid part of Hungary’s national team for over six years. He was able to amass an impressive number of national international trophies during that time.

In the last year of his career as an active player, he took up the Italian citizenship and joined their national team, finishing his playing days as part of the Settebello.

Since 2013 he took up the position of BVSC head coach and, after coaching the women’s national team for a year, became the new national coach of Hungary’s male team, leading them to the silver medal at this year’s world championships in Budapest.
