Ticha Stadium (Bulgarian: Стадион „Тича“) is a multi-purpose stadium in Varna, Bulgaria. It is located in the north-eastern part of the city. Currently the stadium is used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Cherno More Varna. It has a seating capacity of 8,250 spectators. The stadium's name comes from the former name of the club and the river Kamchia.

History[edit]

The stadium was constructed and completed in 1968 with the help of volunteers and fans by an initiative held by the then-president of the club Vladimir Chakarov.[1] It was renovated in 2008, when plastic seats were installed on the nоrth stand.

To date, the stadium does not meet UEFA guidelines to host the home matches of the club in the European competitions, which means that the team is forced to play at another stadium with approved UEFA requirements in Bulgaria. Because of that, the club will move to a new stadium.
