Bulgarian football club Ludogorets Razgrad Owner Kiril Domuschiev has said that he will "do everything in his power to get permission to hold Ludogorets' Champions League home games at the National Stadium Vasil Levski in Sofia," according to Alexander Krassimirov of INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL. It "became clear" on Wednesday that the Vasil Levski stadium "would not qualify to host Champions League group games as it is classified as a UEFA Category 3 stadium rather than the required Category 4." Ludogorets' owners "have said they will make improvements to the facility, to avoid having to play in either Romania and Macedonia." Domuschiev said, "If UEFA allow to us, we will play in Sofia, otherwise (we will play) in Romania or Macedonia. Hopefully we will play here because the stadium will be full. I and my colleagues will deal with it. We need to make some improvements to the stadium, there is no way to wait for money from the state. We will try with our means to achieve it, we will make a donation to the stadium to play here" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 8/28).
