The 2010 Bulgaria Cup semi finals are due to be played on April 28, with West B league (second division) side Chavdar Etropole taking on Beroe Stara Zagora who are currently mid table in Bulgaria A.  In the other Semi Final Chernomorets Pomorie will face Kaliakra Kavarna. (both play in East B).

All of the teams pulled off shock results to make the Semis with Beroe Stara Zagora beating CSKA Sofia 1-0 and Chernomorets Pomorie  winning 2-0 over top flight side Minyor Pernik. The other two games both went to penalties and Kaliakra beat Cherno More Varna and Chavdar defeated Slavia Sofia. Thus the eventual winner of the final is on May 5 will be a new name on the cup and given the size of the clubs involved the Bulgarian FA have decided to wait until the finalists are known before deciding where the final will be played to try and accommodate the clubs supporters.

As one of the remaining clubs will represent Bulgaria in Europe next season a further decision will have to be made regarding where any European game will be played as none of their stadiums will meet UEFA Standards none of the three B league sides has a ground capacity above 5,000 and even Beroe Stara Zagora can only accommodate 25,000 max. Still it will be a nice problem for the eventual winner to have.
