The Bulgarian National Quidditch team competed in the [[1994]] [[Quidditch World Cup]] final against the [[Irish National Quidditch team]]. Irish [[Chaser]], [[Troy]], scored the first goal of the match. After another two Irish goals, [[Clara Ivanova]] registered Bulgaria's opening score. Then [[Irish National Quidditch team|Ireland]]'s [[Seeker]] [[Aidan Lynch]] was fooled by [[Viktor Krum]]'s [[Wronski Feint]], but managed to continue play after the aid of some [[mediwizard]]s. Fifteen minutes later Ireland had stretched their lead to 130-10, when their Chaser [[Mullet]] was fouled by the Bulgarian [[Keeper]], [[Lev Zograf]], and was awarded a penalty. This led to a scuffle, with another penalty being awarded to Ireland, though [[Quidditch referee|referee]] [[Hassan Mostafa]] soon became distracted by the Veela . [[Quigley]] sent a [[Bludger]] towards Krum which broke his nose. Lynch then spotted the Snitch, but was beaten in the race for it by Krum. Despite this, Ireland still ran out the victors. The final score was 170-160.

Bulgaria reached the final, but lost to [[Egyptian National Quidditch team|Egypt]] on a score of 450 to 300.

On June 6th, they competed against [[Norway]] and won 170 to 20, in what many considered the tournament's biggest upset, due to Norway being joint favourites.

We'll leave everything out there." And that they did. Play was stopped twice during the early part of the game for Healers to attend to the Bulgarian team, six of whom were bleeding from the head within the first hour of the game. Later, Vulchanov deliberately flew into a Bludger to protect Krum, who was in pursuit of the Snitch. He was knocked out cold and fell from his broom, only to be saved by Japanese Seeker [[Noriko Sato]]. And Krum, seeing at Sato couldn't compete for the Snitch, pulled up instead of using this advantage. The Japanese were two hundred and fifty points ahead when the Snitch re-entered the game and Krum beat Sato to it, but refused to catch it. The Bulgarians drew even with the Japanese by the tenth hour, when Krum led Sato to believe he was avoiding Hongo's sight-line and caught the Snitch.

HistoryEdit

1994 Quidditch World CupEdit

The Bulgarian National Quidditch team competed in the 1994 Quidditch World Cup final against the Irish National Quidditch team. Irish Chaser, Troy, scored the first goal of the match. After another two Irish goals, Clara Ivanova registered Bulgaria's opening score. Then Ireland's Seeker Aidan Lynch was fooled by Viktor Krum's Wronski Feint, but managed to continue play after the aid of some mediwizards. Fifteen minutes later Ireland had stretched their lead to 130-10, when their Chaser Mullet was fouled by the Bulgarian Keeper, Lev Zograf, and was awarded a penalty. This led to a scuffle, with another penalty being awarded to Ireland, though referee Hassan Mostafa soon became distracted by the Veela . Quigley sent a Bludger towards Krum which broke his nose. Lynch then spotted the Snitch, but was beaten in the race for it by Krum. Despite this, Ireland still ran out the victors. The final score was 170-160.

2002 Quidditch World CupEdit

Bulgaria reached the final, but lost to Egypt on a score of 450 to 300. This came as another crushing disappointment for Bulgaria, since the last time it had reached the final, in the 1994 World Cup, they had catched the Snitch but did not manage to secure a win. This time, outstanding Egyptian Seeker Rawya Zaghloul narrowly beat Viktor Krum to the Snitch. After the match, a tearful Krum announced his retirement.[5]

2014 Quidditch World CupEdit

Bulgaria qualified for the 2014 Quidditch World Cup. Viktor Krum came out of retirement to play in the tournament.[5] The team rode Firebolt Supremes.[6]

Their first match was against New Zealand on May 20th, which they won 410 to 170, despite many feeling that they were lucky to even qualify. In the 106th minute, Chaser Bogomil Levski collided with New Zealand's Chaser Dennis Moon appeared accidental to many spectators, but the referee, Georgios Xenakis, ruled that Moon had itentionally caused it and sent him off, giving Bulgaria a large advantage. Krum beat New Zealand's Seeker Ngapo Ponika to the Snitch, winning the game.

On June 6th, they competed against Norway and won 170 to 20, in what many considered the tournament's biggest upset, due to Norway being joint favourites. Chaser Nikola Vassileva scored two goals early in the game. When Krum dived for the Snitch, the Norwegian Seeker Sigrid Kristoffersen thought he was dodging a bludger, so ignored him, allowing Krum to capture the Snitch in the 42nd minute and win the game.

They competed in the semi-final match against Japan on July 6th, and won 610 to 460. As Bulgarian Beater Boris Vulchanov told Ginny Potter, "We've been underdogs all through this tournament. We have nothing to lose and everything to win. We'll leave everything out there." And that they did. Play was stopped twice during the early part of the game for Healers to attend to the Bulgarian team, six of whom were bleeding from the head within the first hour of the game. Later, Vulchanov deliberately flew into a Bludger to protect Krum, who was in pursuit of the Snitch. He was knocked out cold and fell from his broom, only to be saved by Japanese Seeker Noriko Sato. And Krum, seeing at Sato couldn't compete for the Snitch, pulled up instead of using this advantage. The Japanese were two hundred and fifty points ahead when the Snitch re-entered the game and Krum beat Sato to it, but refused to catch it. The Bulgarians drew even with the Japanese by the tenth hour, when Krum led Sato to believe he was avoiding Hongo's sight-line and caught the Snitch.
