Football fans have started to gather around the Vasil Levski National Stadium for the upcoming protest against the BFS management, which is scheduled for 17:00.
A large number of police officers have been stationed around the facility since early afternoon. At around 4:15 p.m., Evlogi Georgiev Boulevard at Orlov Most in Gurko Street was closed, allowing only public transport buses to pass through. A little later, traffic in the other direction from Dragan Tsankov Boulevard was also stopped.

The uniformed have formed a perimeter around the National Stadium from the Orlov Bridge, near the monument to the Soviet Army and in the Boris Garden in front of the CSKA “Bulgarian Army” stadium and around the public transport stop at the corner of “Dragan Tsankov” and “Evlogi Georgiev” boulevards.
