Because of the city's famous brand of Shumensko beer, they were often affectionately called Пивоварите, or The Brewers.
The newly founded FC Shumen 1929 shared a stadium with the old club during the 2013–14 V AFG season, resulting in the most recent 'Shumen derby' taking place in one of the top three levels of Bulgarian football. FC Shumen 1929 won the first game 3:1 on September 22, 2013, and followed that up with another win on April 5, 2014, this time with a scoreline of 2:1. At the end of the 2013/14 season, PFC Shumen 2010 was relegated from the North-Eastern V Group, and soon after disbanded altogether.
This temporarily left FC Shumen 1929 as the highest-ranked team from the city within the Bulgarian football pyramid, but the club soon began experiencing financial difficulties. They ultimately stopped fielding a senior side after the 2015–16 season, leaving Shumen without an official representative in the Bulgarian football system until the original club was refounded in 2018.
