Stadium Guide

History

Bonchuk Stadium has been home to PFC Marek Dupnitsa since 1952, and is very much built in the archetypical Bulgarian mould. Municipally owned, the stadium consists of a bowl-shaped single-tier of seating and a pitch which features an athletics track around its perimeter.

Although Bonchuk Stadium is yet to host a full international match, it has hosted a number of high-profile European matches of the years most famously in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

During the 1977-1978 season, the club played Bayern Munich in the UEFA Cup, and a season later faced Aberdeen in the Cup Winners Cup. Managed by a young Sir Alex Ferguson, Marek Dupnitsa won both of their home legs against the two European giants, but ultimately lost out on aggregate.

Stands

Bonchuk Stadium is comprised of four stands: North, East, South and West.
