there is not the tiniest doubt about which term is to be used

the other possible one, labdarugás, (lob-dough-roog-aash) is just too long and doesn‘t have the perfect sounding to it as (faw-tsee) has

Foci is the hungarian malapropism of „footie“. Labdarugás, meaning „ball kicking“, is the official term. MLSZ, our FA, is Magyar Labdarugó Szövetség. Other words like fodbol and futball are also in use, but are less popular.

The Croatian nogomet is the best as it's an actual word that means 'foot target', and not just a local pronunciation of the word football, though foci does sound cooler and has a wonderful ring to it.

Bro, Croatian like Ukrainian is archaic. Russian and Serbian are modernized languages capable of expressing high concepts due to heavy foreign influence.

I thought it was faw-chee? If it's a 'c' sound then it doesn't sound nearly as cool.
