Yugoiztochen Region

No strangers to this competition, Yugoiztochen Region were the host team at the 2007 UEFA Regions' Cup finals, and will look to improve on their runners-up finish on that occasion.

No strangers to this competition, Yugoiztochen Region were the host team at the 2007 UEFA Regions' Cup finals, losing 2-1 to Polish side Dolnośląski in the final under coach Angel Stankov. Stankov's former assistant Krassimir Manolov steered them through qualifying this time out, with victories against sides from Romania and Switzerland proving crucial on home soil. With players plucked from local clubs like FC Slivnishki Geroi, FC Sozopol and Manolov's club, FC Levski Karlovo, this is a young side, but their coach rates them. "At such tournaments anything can happen," Manolov said. "I have already been at two final tournaments and I know what a great opportunity this is for the boys."

Coach: Krassimir Manolov
A Bulgarian Cup winner as a player with PFC Botev Plovdiv in 1981, Manolov won the 2000/01 Maltese title as Valletta FC coach.
