Xenophobia in Sport

Xenophobia in Sport Bulgarian football fans

Lately, football racism is becoming increasingly widespread in Bulgaria. Groups of radical right-wing football fans are emerging across the country, and the radical nationalist parties are gladly banking on them. Majority of NPB members are football fans.

Football fans acted as the main force during the anti-Muslim unrest in February. Fans of Levsky FC attending the game with CSKA FC displayed a large banner, saying “Bulgaria will remain free when all of you are dead,” referring to Turks. Bulgarian Football Union did not issue any sanctions against Levsky FC. Bulgarian authorities did not react to this at all.
