In the first half - the fall of 2009 - the bears played 2 international matches and several domestic flag football tournaments. At the beginning of 2010, the team was unexpectedly left by the long-time coach Hristo Gyurkovski, but despite this, the team started his training on time. This was followed by 10 full kit domestic matches between Saints and Dragons, 1 flag football tournament and 2 internationals. The Sofia Bears achieved an all-important win in their first clash with the Serbian team and finished the season with 3 out of 4 international matches won and cemented their authority as one of the best defensive teams in the Balkans. The team has a 2-month summer break - that is, gym training and sprints. The 2010-2011 season begins on September 6, and the team will face even stronger teams from neighboring countries and will participate for the first time in one of the European competitions - the EFAF Challenge Cup.
