Watch the Lions on the European stage and beyond with the World Soccer Talk Bulgaria national football team TV schedule.

Bulgaria first officially competed in 1924, after the national team’s formation two years prior. Shortly after their first match, they took part in the 1924 Summer Olympic Games.

The side declined to participate in the first World Cup in 1930, but finally qualified in 1962. They’ve played in seven World Cups to date, making the round of 16 in 1986, and finishing fourth in 1994. ’94 included defeating Argentina in the group stage, and reigning champions Germany in the quarterfinals. They eventually lost to Italy in the semifinals, wrapping up their greatest run in a World Cup to date.

At Euros in 1996 and 2004, their only two appearances, Bulgaria failed to make it out of the group stage. In minor tournaments however, Bulgaria does have some silverware. They won the Balkan Cup in 1931, 1932, and 1976. They also have silver (1968) and bronze (1956) medals at the Olympics.

Bulgaria traditionally plays home games at Vasil Levski National Stadium in Sofia, but recently has started playing matches at the much smaller Huvepharma Arena in Razgrad.

Bulgaria’s kits are traditionally white tops, green shorts, and red socks – matching the tricolors of the national flag. The lion at the heart of the team crest, and thus the team nickname, derives from the lions featured on the Bulgaria coat of arms.
