Footage of a collapsed tribune at the Plovdiv stadium was published in a number of national sports publications. They contained information that the failure had occurred recently, and that there was a danger to the entire facility.

The sinkhole in question is more than 10 years old, the reason being the collapsed embankment below it. The first floor of a facility is on an embankment, and the second part of a reinforced concrete structure, and the survey years ago showed that there is no danger of it giving way.

The deputy mayor for sports, Georgi Tityukov, stated that the part in question has been fenced off for years and no spectators are allowed there.

“The stadium itself does not have Act 16, but the athletics track has permission to use it. There is no danger for the rest of the stands, as spectators are only allowed in the central sector, which is not on an embankment,” said the deputy mayor.

Unfortunately, the future of the stadium does not look bright. In the last mandate, there was an idea to start its gradual revival, but after the decision on the financing of the Botev and Lokomotiv stadiums, the idea went into the background.

“There was a concept that the stadium would be renovated in stages. However, the amount is huge and overwhelming for the budget of Plovdiv. Separately, the state provided substantial funds for the construction of the two stadiums. In our opinion, the only chance for the renovation of “Plovdiv” station to happen is for common sense to prevail along the Plovdiv – Sofia axis. Instead of looking for a field in “Vrazhdebna” or “Bojurishte” for a new national stadium, the one in Plovdiv can become one. Usually, however, reason has never prevailed, and whatever can be done in Sofia, has been done in Sofia,” Tityukov said.
