Professional Football Club Shumen 2010 (Bulgarian: Професионален Футболен Клуб Шумен 2010) was a Bulgarian football club, playing in the city of Shumen. The club was established in 1929 under the name "Panayot Volov". They play their home games on "Panayot Volov", with a capacity of 24,390 people. The main kit-colours of the team are yellow and blue. Currently the team is playing in the Bulgarian North-East V football group, after finishing 12th in the 2012–13 B PFG and suffering relegation.

Because of the city's famous brand of Shumensko beer, the team are often affectionately called The Brewers.


Panayot Volov participated in the State Championship as Shumen region champion in 1934–35 and reached the semifinals. The club was again champion of Shumen region in 1935–36 and 1936–37, but was eliminated during the first matches of the State Championship. Panayot Volov changed names as DFS Shumen in 1980, Madara Shumen in 1984, and as FC Shumen in 1985.

After a successful spell in the Bulgarian A Professional Football Group during the early and late 1990's, which included a 4th-place finish in 1993/94 and a UEFA Cup participation, the club lost its sponsors and went bankrupt. A newly formed entity acquired its license and merged with Yunak Shumen in 2001, eventually becoming FC Shumen 2001. The club briefly returned its original name in 2007, before entering financial difficulties once more and being renamed Shumen 2010 as it was demoted to the V group, the third tier in Bulgarian football.[1] The club regained its position in professional football after a two-year absence by winning the 2011–12 Northeastern V Amateur Group, but finished 12th out of 14 teams in its first season back, and was relegated to the third division for the 2013–14 season.

Panayot Volov played in the A Professional Group for a total of seven seasons: 1972–1973, 1983–1984, 1993–1996 and 1998–2000.[2] It reached the semifinals of the Bulgarian Cup on two occasions, in 1957 and 2006, when they narrowly lost 2:1 to Cherno More Varna after extra time.
