"CSKA the home of football in Bulgaria" Sofia Sports & Outdoors Tip by Martin_H

Sofia Sports & Outdoors: 17 reviews and 42 photos


CSKA are probably the most well known and successful team in Bulgaria. Their history dates back to 1948 and in common with former USSR states CSKA denotes the army club.
This was a Bulgarian 'A' league match against Vidima-Rakovski which CSKA went on to win by a convincing 3-0.
The ground itself is a typical small European stadium with running track and a largely useless roof over the centre part of the main stand. Ticket prices are from 1 to 4 leva (0.3 - 1.3 GBP).
A word of warning, all the seats appear to be covered with a layer of cement dust so do what the locals do and bring a newspaper to put on the seat!

Address: Stadium Bulgarian Army, 3 “Dragan Tsankov” blvd
Directions: Located directly behind the National Stadium in the central part of the city.
Theme: Sports Watching
