History

1989

Bulgarian Supercup trophy (2007-)
The first match for the Bulgarian Supercup was held in 1989. The match was proposed by Kiril Zaharinov, sport editor at the Bulgarian News Agency and secretary of the union of the Bulgarian sport journalists. The first Supercup trophy was made in Italymarker and was 80 cm tall, weighing 15 kg. Today it is kept in the CSKA Sofia museum.

The match was held at 9th September Stadiummarker in Burgasmarker, opposing 1988-89 Bulgarian champion and Cup winner CFKA Sredets (currently CSKA Sofia) and the losing finalist of the 1988–89 Bulgarian Cup Chernomorets Burgas. CSKA won the match 1-0 thanks to a goal by Hristo Stoichkov.

2004-

After the Revolutions of 1989 the Bulgarian Supercup match was canceled. 14 years later the Bulgarian Professional Football League decided to restore the competition organising a Supercup match between the champion from the 2003-04 season Lokomotiv Plovdiv and the 2003-04 Bulgarian Cup holder Litex Lovech. The match was held at Naftex Stadiummarker in Burgasmarker and Lokomotiv won 1-0 after a last-minute goal by Ivan Paskov.

Since the win of Lokomotiv Plovdiv in 2004, only two teams have won the Supercup - CSKA Sofia (in years 2006 and 2008) and Levski Sofia (years 2005, 2007 and 2009). Litex Lovech, the losing finalist of the 2004 edition of the competition, has lost three more Supercup matches since then (2007, 2008 and 2009).

From 2004 on a brand new trophy is made every year as it was decided that each Supercup winner should retain the trophy in perpetuity. The current trophy was designed in Italymarker in 2007 and is 100 cm tall.
