Rebirth of Spartak Plovdiv

Plovdiv started an attempt to revive 1963 Bulgarian champions Spartak, who disappeared from the football map in the summer of 2016.

The club from Kyuchyuk Paris has submitted documents for registration in the Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) through a new company which will inherit PFC Spartak-S 94.

Last week, the new company has submitted two letters to Plovdiv municipality for the concession of the Todor Diev Stadium.

“The requirements that the municipality has set is the stadium to meet all the licensing criteria for holding matches of the Bulgarian championship – with the construction of lighting and stands for 5,000 spectators,” the Mayor of Plovdiv Ivan Totev said in a press conference today (Tuesday).

Plovdiv Mayor added that the desired investment is “very small” and the decision of the concession is expected by the end of this month.

“What we want is within 3-4 million leva. No more. It is relatively small and is completely realisable.”

Spartak Plovdiv disappeared after management decided to close the men’s team two days before the start of this season in which the team had to compete in the Southeastern B Group. Only youth academy continued to function.
