Bulgarian Side Levski Sofia Puts Stadium Construction On Hold As Money Dries Up
Bulgarian club Levski Sofia "has put the reconstruction of its Georgi Asparuhov stadium on hold which new money is sought to complete the build," according to Alexander Krassimirov of INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL. The main stand "has already been demolished to begin construction of the new facility." Construction of the largest stand in the stadium "was scheduled to be completed in May next year, when the club celebrates its 100th anniversary." However, currently, Levski "has fallen into serious financial difficulty forcing the project is currently halted, said the club's owner lawyer Todor Batkov." He said, "The construction of the stadium is not going as planned. Obviously there is a delay and you can see it. We have money only for the wages of our players and employees" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 12/13).
