Sofia trip Can't Post or Reply Privately

I am visiting Sofia next week and hope to do three games - on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday:at Septemvri, Slavia and CSKA respectively. Has anyone any experience of these grounds, where they are, how to get to them and buy tickets? I have seen the piece in Football Weekends some time ago but that article only mentioned CSKA of the three. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Bulgarian clubs CSKA Sofia and Lokomotiv Plovdiv have both been ordered to play two matches behind closed doors after crowd trouble at their league match on Sunday, the Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) said on Monday.
Fighting between rival fans forced the referee to halt Sunday's match in Plovdiv for nearly 20 minutes. CSKA, who are second in the Bulgarian league table, won the game 1-0.
Players tried to step in to prevent the violence but were ignored when pleading with their fans as belts, bottles and flares were all used as weapons.

CSKA, one of the two most popular clubs in the Balkan country alongside Sofia rivals Levski, were also fined 14,300 leva (6,531.78) and Lokomotiv were fined 14,000 leva (6,394.75), the BFU said.
The CSKA fixtures affected by the ruling will be their homes games against Septemvri Sofia on Thursday and Beroe Stara Zagora on December 10.
Lokomotiv will play behind closed doors when they host Vereya next month and Pirin Blagoevgrad in February

Many thanks for this. If I have got it right I have Septemvri v Cherno More at the Vasil Levski National Stadium at 5.30 on the Friday and Slavia v Levski at 5.30 on the Saturday at their home ground; CSKA v Beroe on the Sunday will not be possible as it is behind closed doors. That will be it I think with the lower divisions finished for the winter break.

Yep.


Although the Slavia v Levski may also be at the Vasil Levski because of lighting needed for TV purposes and daylight time.


Early doors they were under these instructions = '' Slavia 1913 (Sofia) plays its home games at the at the "Vasil Levski" national stadium in Sofia and some home games during daylight hours - at the "Slavia" stadium in Sofia.''




Keep eyes peeled , Vitosha don't even know at this moment where their playing Loko Plovdiv in 48 hours time ?

Re: [dottirofhod] Sofia trip [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I have seen 8 games in 2017 in Bulgaria including 2 Slavia Sofia games both played at Vasil Levski Stadium, the last one being against Dunav in October. I did e-mail Slavia Sofia about the ground situation and got the following reply " Slavia plays the home games at the National Stadium Vasil Levski. The Slavia Stadium is undergoing some construction works this season". I did have a look around Slavia stadium and in parts it looks quite run down so not sure they would play Levski there. The following website (which I have found quite reliable) says that the game is at Vasil Levski Stadium but double check nearer the time as things can always change quickly in Bulgaria. https://en.bulgarian-football.com/

Yes Gary that's a good site , a clickable link to it can be found in post 2.


As stated in the post before yours the Slavia v Levski game is at Vasil Levski.




Would have been there myself at the moment if Vitosha were playing at their home ground. Contact with them reveals the renovations are finished to their ground but nevertheless the next 2 home games v Loko Plovdiv tonight & v CSKA on Dec 3 are both at Vasil Levski.


Tonights Vitosha v Plovdiv game declared high risk because of Loko (?) fans.


Its getting silly again in Bulgaria.




So it was a toss up between Bulgaria or Bosnia for me , Bosnia winning. The Cup Q Finals also influenced the decision.

I visited CSKA last year. From memory, we bought tickets on the day from booths in the park outside the stadium (Google Maps street view: https://www.google.co.uk/...w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656). The ground is in the same complex as Levksi's stadium, which has its own metro stop "Vasil Levski"

Re: [totallyuntamed] Sofia trip [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Further research has thrown up the possibility of Botev Plovdiv v Etar on Saturday at 3pm. A train journey of 2 and a quarter hours makes it doable. However, I cannot work out if it is being played at the Hristo Botev Stadium or the Botev 1912 Football Complex. Can any of our Bulgarian experts shed any light on this please?

Its a lovely brand spanking new facility , ideal for Academy games but for the big boys stuff with Botev getting 1,500 plus with quite a few nutters its an interesting atmosphere.


Easy to spot on the way in on the left , its the one with lights out of the 5 pitches.
