The tournament for the One World Cup has aimed for the past 12 years at popularising indoor football
amongst those working in diplomatic missions, commercial companies and the media.
During the final days of 2011, our sporting competition was held in the newly-opened hall of the
Akademik Sports Complex. The amateur teams who took part were: DSK Bank (3rd), First Investment Bank (1st),
Strabag Austria (4th) and Telegraph (2nd).
By tradition before the official awards ceremony a collective star team of participating
teams was able to enjoy a demonstration match against Champions No.1 in Bulgaria, Bulgarian Cup Winners, a
veteran team of footballers from Levski FC.
The famous names included Emil Spasov, Ruslan Vutsov, Stegan Pavlov, Atanas Vasilev,
Stefan Vasilev, Sasho Nachev, Angel Stankov and Alexander Valentinov. The head of the selection board for
the elite team was always Alexander Manolov, a good friend of our magazine.
The match was played under the strict control of Ivo Tsenov, referee, and the final score was 6:3.
Dr. Iordan Genovski from the Ambulance Service was there to provide care for the health of all the players.
The prize fund was provided by a number of sporting brands: Maxima, Burgelof, Rubella
cosmetics and an exceptional collection of Bessa Valley wines. A special present was given to the blue
legends by the company of Avendi, a bottle of Johnnie Walker with all their names printed on it.
The One World Team would like to thank Dr. Georgi Gelev, the director of the Ambulance
Service, as well as Aneta Vasileva and Stoyan Tashev, thanks to whom the football fiesta was injury free and
played in one of the most modern and contemporary sports halls in Sofia.
