NotesEdit

  1. ^ The contemporary name of Tarnovo is Veliko Tarnovo.
  2. ^ The full name of AS 23 Sofia is Atletik-Slava 23.
  3. ^ The match was abandoned in 73' at 1:2 for Shipchenski sokol, when after a clash a player from the Varna team had to leave the field with a broken leg. The Varna players demand from the referee to show a red card to the AS 23 player that participated in the collision, but the referee refused to send him off, as he judged that there was no intention in the AS 23 player's action. At that, Shipchenski sokol left the field. Later it was awarded 3:0 to AS 23 by the BNSF.
