In fairness to Bulgaria, they successfully hosted the Final Round of the 2012 World League despite the drama.
President Graca has praises for them:
“You have everything needed to host the World Championship – great hall, a big team and a country, which is devoted to the sports. In addition, after the wonderful organisation of the League finals, you have a great dossier as a host.”
Lazarov also mentioned that the Bulgarian Federation plans to build new facilities in cities like Burgas, Plovdiv and Ruse capable of hosting the tournament. Sofia and Varna are already front runners to host a round or two.
In case you didn’t know, Poland will host the 2014 Men’s World Championships while Italy will host the women’s tournament.
Anyway, if the FIVB approves the bid then Bulgarian volleyball fans are in for a treat.
