The European football headquarters confirmed that the European qualification between Bulgaria and Hungary will be held without an audience.
The headquarters specified that they approved such a decision after analyzing the data provided by the local authorities and the Federal Security Service.
We do not know what data the BFS and the native Vlachs sent to UEFA, but earlier today our football headquarters announced the decision, explaining that it was taken on the recommendation of the European headquarters.
As we assumed in our comments (SEE HERE), it was at the initiative of the BFS that the absurd decision was reached for the home team to close its stadium to fans.
The motive is fear of a protest, for which calls have appeared on social networks. Without it being clear whether there will actually be a protest by ultras groups in our country, BFS decided to move the match to Plovdiv and close it for fans.
Naturally, such a decision in an official match cannot be made without the approval of the European Football Central, which wrote:
“We announce that the European qualification match between Bulgaria and Hungary will be played in front of empty stands in Plovdiv on November 16. The measures were agreed between all parties after an analysis of the information received by the Bulgarian authorities related to an increased risk of disruption of public order in and around the stadium.”
