With respect to the upcoming free dates in the football calendar allowing for the organization of club friendly games, the Bulgarian Football Union would like to remind the representatives of all professional football clubs as well as the licensed agents that every international friendly game has to be coordinated with the BFU international department beforehand.
In accordance with the established order, all games featuring Bulgarian clubs are subject to official authorization by the international department, the integrity expert Mr. Mario Kosturkov as well as the Referee committee headed by Mr. Yordan Stalev.
The BFU would like to forewarn that any non-compliance with the FIFA, UEFA and BFU procedure would be subject to strict sanctions from the respective authorities.
The Bulgarian Football Union strongly states its stance against potential unregulated international friendly games and expresses its willingness to cooperate with all official state institutions in case of breaching of the laws of the game.
