On the eve of the rematch from the Conference League Anderlecht - Ludogorets, a big fan club of the eleven-time champions was opened in Brussels. It will be called Belgium and will include supporters of the Eagles from all over the country, as well as from other European countries. Almost 80 people attended the opening ceremony on Wednesday, which was personally honored by the chairman of the board of directors in Ludogorets Temenuga Gazdova, the president Alexander Alexandrov, the executive director Angel Petrichev, the sports director Georgi Karamandzukov, as well as the technical director Cosmin Moti. The new fan club numbers nearly 600 people and almost all of them will attend today's rematch with Anderlecht at the Lotto Park stadium.
"We have been with Ludogorets for a long time. We have gone to almost all away games in Europe. There are many Bulgarians in Belgium who support the team. Over 1 200 people will be at the rematch with Anderlecht," said the chairman of the fan club Shehsin Ahmed.
The head of the consular service at our embassy in Brussels, Malin Messalski, also attended the opening of the fan club.
"I know what Ludogorets means to all of you in Brussels. We have been communicating for the last few years, we see each other. I had heard word of mouth, but I had not come here. I am really impressed," said the team's executive director Angel Petrichev.
Sports director of Ludogorets Georgi Karamandzhukov promised that he will present his last gold medal from the Super Cup of Bulgaria, together with those of Angel Petrichev, Alexander Alexandrov and Cosmin Moti, to the children who attended the establishment of the fan club.
"What you made us feel is that the Bulgarians and the Bulgarian culture exist and are united and we support each other," added the president of the team, Alexander Alexandrov.
"Hopefully after the match, we celebrate together," Moti said.
The organizers pointed out that they have an ambition to create a Ludogorets football school in Belgium, and in addition, the first event will be an organized tournament between representatives of the different cities. The most Ludogorets fans are in Brussels, Ghent, Genk and Antwerp.
