During the official visit, Mr. Shahid and Mr. Nikolov discussed potential collaboration in the fields of sports, tourism, and business, and Mr. Nikolov also treated the BRAVE CF delegation to a tour of the city’s sports and infrastructure facilities, with the view to hosting a BRAVE CF show in the future. Mr. Nikolov explained the city was ready to host BRAVE CF in the European summer, and is eager to have joint cooperation to make the show happen. 

Burgas is one of the top cities in Bulgaria, and has been credited with hosting K1 events in the past, as MMA and BRAVE CF could bring a new era of sporting structure and development for the city and the country of Bulgaria.

Bulgaria could soon join 13 other European countries which have hosted a BRAVE CF show in the past, with the number set to increase to 15 in 2024. 

The organization has confirmed six events in five nations in Europe, with Slovenia, Netherlands, Croatia, Germany, and France all to be featured. Out of those, there will be debut shows in the Netherlands and Croatia, with Bulgaria potentially added to the list.
