11th of May, 2016 – on this date Ludogorets became champion for the fifth time in a row. The same day our biggest rival Levski lost to Lokomotiv (Plovdiv) with a 2:3 score and “The Eagles” became untouchable on the top of the rating.
Ludogorets already owns the second longest collection of consecutive trophies in the Bulgarian premiere football championship after CDNA’s nine titles won between 1954 and 1962. Until now the team had the second position along with CSKA, who have 4 titles between 1980 and 1983, but now Ludogorets sits firmly in the second spot alone and is already aiming to overthrow CDNA’s achievement from the 60’s.
The season was kicked off on the rough side for “The Eagles”, who were fourth in the overall ranking for a short time, with six points behind the leader. After Georgi Dermendzhiev returned in November, the team achieved a few wins in a row and after the first half-season they were on the top position. After the spring period of the championship Ludogorets was dominating over its competitors with an impressive 14 points ahead of the second team – Levski. Ludogorets left no doubts in its class and supremacy by achieving a positive balance in the results against every team of the “A” football group except Litex.
