Red Star fans are on fire!

19 Nov

Flabbergasted. That is the right word to describe my feelings during the Red Star Belgrade-OFK match on Oct. 5. Thousands of Red Star Belgrade fans put newspapers on fire and put these above their heads. After that, they even burned the seats: their own stadium was on fire.

CSKA-Levski: “One of the biggest hates in the world”

6 Nov

The football world counts many, many derbies. These are the most special matches of the year for the fanatic fans. ‘Their’ team plays against another team from the same or another city, which is close to their team’s homebase.

In Bulgaria they also have a few big derbies, like the Plovdiv derby (Lokomotiv against Botev). But the biggest Bulgarian derby is without any doubt CSKA Sofia-Levski Sofia. Those two teams are both, what’s in the name, from Sofia.

In the southern city of Blagoevgrad, about thirty Levski-fans gathered to go to the Sofia-derby by bus. A video compilation about their journey and how the Levski-fans supported their team.
