We have often heard sports comments, such as "our players needed just a little bit of luck to win" or "luck was not on our side." After today's victory we know one thing for certain that luck and success follow the courageous and the selfless. And when a little bit of proven professionalism is added to this, personified by the football legend, the team's coach Bozhil Kolev and the full support of the academic management, provided by the Rector of the University, Prof. Dr Krasimir Ivanov, then success and victory inevitably come. We shouldn't forget the sporting spirit and courage that Prof. Dr Ara Kaprelyan, the president of the club, inspires in the boys. Yes ... everything matters. Including the sports outfits, with the name of the University on them, which, you guys managed to defend with dignity! We are proud of you!
