Hi everyone,

Here is an interesting piece of news.

Bulgaria's president Georgi Parvanov and prime minister PM Boyko Borissov have been invited to participate in the second edition of a chess match at 100 boards between fans of Bulgaria's most popular football clubs Levski and CSKA this Sunday.

"They both accepted the invitation and so far they have not contacted us to cancel the appointment," said Nikolay Todorov, chairman of the Levski chess club. The chess match of the fans starts at 10 am on Sunday in Sofia's Universiada Hall. The competition is supported by the youth and sports committee with the Sofia Municipal Council. The opponents will play two games with exchanged colors and there will be a lottery with small prizes between the rounds.
