Who are the Bears?

The Sofia Bears Sports Club, founded on May 3, 2007, is the first team in Bulgaria to play American football with full equipment. The Sofia Bears was created by veteran players of the former Sofia Lions (formed February 5, 1995).

Over the years, the Bears has become a solid foundation for the introduction and development of the sport throughout Bulgaria, including the formation of a children’s team.

The team is both a participant and organizer for all types of tournaments and camps throughout Bulgaria as well as international events in Serbia, Romania, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 2014 a Bears veteran received a collegiate scholarship to play NCAAF Division II in the United States. In 2016, the Bears won the Serbian League III cup.

The Sofia Bears are a full member of the Bulgarian Federation of American Football (BFAF).
