The Blues will play their home matches at the Vasil Levski national stadium in the meantime until the new Georgi Asparuhov ground, also known as Gerena, opens.

“I think that all Levski fans will be delighted with the new stadium,” Levski’s chief executive Ivo Tonev told reporters.

The decision to build a new stadium comes at a time when Bulgarian football is reeling from the financial crisis with a number of clubs facing considerable difficulties.
