Bulgaria 1924

0
0
1924 was a big year in Bulgarian football. The first national championship competition was scheduled and the nation played its first international fixtures.
Regional leagues had been held since 1921, and in 1924 a unification tournament for the 6 regional champions was planned. Unfortunately this was  abandoned when Vladislav (Varna) refused to replay their semi final with Levski in Sofia, wanting a switch to Varna as the original tie had been played in Sofia. This was never resolved. 
 The following season's  championship was successfully concluded, with Vladislav beating Levski 2-0 in the final.

Bulgaria's first international came on 21.05.24 at Vienna's Simmeringer Sportplatz. 
The team featured 9 Levski players.
