How does the Football League work in Bulgaria?

The winner of the top group is crowned Bulgarian Champion and receives the title. The top six teams play each other on a home-and-away basis. Every top six fixture includes three matches, as well as the results and points from the regular season. The team with the most points at the end of the season is declared champion.

There is also a play-off between the second-placed and third-placed teams to determine who will join the champions in the next season's UEFA Europa League. The match takes place within weeks of the conclusion of the Championship season. If scores are equal after 90 minutes, there is a 30-minute extra time period where any further goals would advance the team ahead. If scores remain level after extra time has finished, a penalty shoot-out will decide the match winner. This play-off system was introduced for the 2009–10 season.

Previous to this system being used, the two lowest placed teams would go into a two-legged relegation/promotion play-off against each other. The losing team would be relegated while the winning team would stay up.

The Bulgarian Cup is played annually by the winners of the First Professional Division. The current holders are Ludogorets Razgrad who beat Sliven 2000 2-0 in the final. The match was held over two legs.

Is Bulgaria in the Euros for football?

Bulgaria will not compete in the European Championship for the second time. Bulgaria lost 1:3 to Hungary in the Nations League Group A semifinal playoff at the "Vasil Levski" stadium. The match was tied 1:1 after 90 minutes of play and went into extra time where Hungary scored twice to advance to the final.

This is Bulgaria's second defeat in the European Championship playoffs in a row. They also lost to Hungary last year. This means that Bulgaria will not be participating in this summer's tournament in Romania and Poland.

So, no, Bulgaria is not going to the Euro 2020 Football Tournament. Instead, they will be competing in the Nations League B division this season.

The Bulgarian national team has never qualified for the European Championship finals. They have only ever been invited once, in 2008. That was when Europe hosted the championship after Russia and Ukraine were banned due to political tensions. Bulgaria was one of four countries that took part in the tournament along with Germany, Greece and Wales. Germany won the competition after defeating Spain 4-2 in the final.

Bulgaria played two matches at the European Championship, both against Northern Ireland. Both games ended in defeats for Bulgaria (0-2 and 1-4).

What are the achievements of the Bulgarian football team?

Bulgaria's most notable successes were reaching the Summer Olympics final in 1968 and the FIFA World Cup semi-finals in 1994. They have also competed in the Balkan Cup, where they have won three titles. Bulgaria, on the other hand, has failed to qualify for any major event since UEFA Euro 2004. Bulgarian national football team was established in 1922. They have never been relegated from the top division of the Bulgarian football system - B PFG.

During the interwar period (1922-39), the nation played only against other countries of the Balkans and Central Europe. It was not until after World War II that they started competing with more powerful nations. Their first major tournament was the 1948 Olympic Games when they took part as one of the five new members of UEFA. The country has never missed an Olympic games since then except for 1976 when they withdrew due to political reasons.

Their first win at a major international tournament came at the 1994 FIFA World Cup when they reached the semi-finals. A year later they achieved their first ever victory at the European Championships when they defeated England 2-1 in Sofia. In August 1995, they became the first Eastern European team to beat Brazil at the Estádio do Maracanã. Three years later they repeated this achievement by beating Colombia at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. This makes Bulgaria's record against South American teams 3-0.

At the 2008 European Football Championship, Bulgaria finished third behind Germany and France.
