regional division


The regions have been designed based on geographic location, tournament participation in previous years, and expected growth to produce a roughly even number of students in each region. The two BEST tournament regions are divided as follows:

West: Vidin, Montana, Vratsa, Pleven, Lovech, Sofia, Pernik, Kyustendil, Blagoevgrad, Pazardzhik, Smolyan or Plovdiv regions.

East: Veliko Tarnovo, Gabrovo, Stara Zagora, Haskovo, Kardzhali, Yambol, Sliven, Burgas, Targovishte, Ruse, Razgrad, Shumen, Varna, Dobrich or Silistra regions.

If you are a new team and do not see your city/region listed, please contact to confirm your region and participation.
