The municipal sports facilities in Bansko remain free of charge. This decision was made by the municipal council at its last regular meeting, as the press centre of the Bulgarian municipality announced. They added that in the last almost two decades municipal funds have been invested in the construction of sports facilities, which are used at no cost by the residents and guests of Bansko.

New rules for use

Until now there have been no rules for their use and they were accessible to all citizens. This was recently subject to change when the councillors adopted "Conditions for the use of municipal sports facilities".

The municipal tennis courts and football fields remain free, but their use will be possible after making a prior request and with a limited time of up to two hours, at the suggestion of Mayor Ivan Kadev. The "Conditions" adopted unanimously also provide for reservations and cancellations to be made through an application on the Municipality of Bansko website.

The Municipality also pointed out that citizens who regularly use the sports grounds had taken part in the preliminary discussion of the conditions. They even made a voluntary commitment to monitor compliance with the newly adopted rules.
