The locals and visitors of Balchik should be proud of their Football team, founded 99 years ago by English and Italian soldiers after the end of the First World War.
FC Chernomorets Balchik was competing in the North-East Third league and last year they ended up in 1st place. The team plays its home games at the local Balchik Stadium with 3,200 seats and at the moment the squad is composed of only Bulgarians players.
From November 2014 to March 2016, Chernomorets won 37 consecutive games in the third division and in the 2015–16 season the team won the promotion to the B Group after five years of absence. On the 12 of June 2016, the Chernomorets announced that they will stay in the North-East Third league and won’t take the promotion due to financial reasons which is kind of unfortunate because, in his history, Chernomorets played mainly in the Bulgarian amateurs divisions.
