On May 9, 2015, Saturday at 18:30 at Akademika Stadium (behind the Pliska Hotel) will be held the 3rd round of the Eastern Division of the Serbian Football League (SAAF), in which the Bulgarian team Sofia Bears participates.
Sofia Bears won convincingly their first official match in the Serbian championship with 39:6 against the team from Jagodina – Black Hornets. Now there is a second clash, but this time in Sofia in front of its own audience. The event will be attended by over 300 people (information from the Facebook event) and interest is expected to grow this week.
Over the years, the Bulgarian team had many international victories, but this year for the first time already participates in an official championship.
The interest that this sport evokes is different from the usual. American football is not a mass sports in Bulgaria, but it is gaining more and more popularity. Filled with adrenaline, strong and spectacular blows, American football is a technically complex but practically simple game, which in its nature is closer to gladiator games in Rome than to basketball or European football.
Fans of this sport in Bulgaria will be able to enjoy a real fighting match between the two teams led by professional referees. The atmosphere will be taken care of by the wonderful cheerleading squad of VS dance, against the backdrop of music and catering and all this on one of the best artificial terrains in Sofia.
