Bonchuk Stadium 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.
