On its official page, the headquarters explains that the decision to move the match to Bulgaria’s second city and to play behind closed doors was made after “analysis of the information received by the Bulgarian authorities, related to an increased risk of disturbing public order”.
“UEFA today announced that the European qualifier match between Bulgaria and Hungary will now be played behind closed doors in Plovdiv on November 16. The measures were agreed between all parties following an analysis of information received by the Bulgarian authorities related to an increased risk of violation of public order in and around the stadium,” said the official statement of the headquarters in Nyon.
Earlier today, the BFS spread the information about the move of the meeting from Sofia to Plovdiv and also disclosed about additional phone calls between UEFA and the Bulgarian authorities.
