Béla Háray started playing ice hockey in 1929. He wanted to be a footballer, but his parents didn’t let him, on the grounds that football was too rough a sport. He won the Hungarian championship four times. The most memorable of his league gold medals was the one he won in 1951, as the Ferencváros TC player-coach. Between 1934 and 1946, Háray earned 50 international caps. He played at the 1936 Garmisch Winter Olympics, and also competed at the Berlin Olympics that year as a field hockey player.
Between 1934 and 1939, Háray competed at all the Ice Hockey World and European Championships and helped win the World University Championships in 1935 and 1937, adding a silver medal in 1939. He led the BVSC team as a player coach from 1956-58 and then as a full-time coach until December 1968.
However, Háray did not abandon football, playing for BEAC and winning a college championship twice with his team. As a field hockey player, he won 12 league titles, and was capped 22 times in that sport.
