In international competitions Újpest are two-times winners of the Mitropa Cup and winners of the 1930 Coupe des Nations.

Since 17 September 1922 their home ground has been the Szusza Ferenc Stadion in Újpest, previously known as Megyeri úti stadium, it was named after the club’s legendary player, Ferenc Szusza in October 2003.
On 3 July 2017, Újpest FC announced that they changed their crest, a move which has greatly angered and is still not accepted by their supporters, UTE, the mayor of Újpest, Újpest’s Cultural Society and many other famous residents and honorary citizens who continue to campaign for the return of the proper crest. The anchor depicted in the proper crest is not only part of the club’s badge but a part of the town’s coat of arms and represents the important role its port played in the district’s history. From 2020-21 a temporary compromise has been reached regarding the crest with a combination of the proper crest and the thing that replaced it whilst talks continue regarding full restoration of the proper crest.
