The resigned executive director of CSKA Aleksandar Todorov submitted on Monday the appeal of the club against the decision of the Bulgarian Football Union (BFS) to revoke its licence.

The Appeal Committee of BFS will now review the new documentation, which was submitted by CSKA, and will have until June 1 to deliver an opinion on the decision to revoke the licence.

However it was not announced whether CSKA submitted together with the appeal documents proving repayment or rescheduling of the club's debts.

Todorov himself did not wish to comment whether the club had made any transfers to the National Revenue Agency (NAP) or other creditors, saying only that the appeal was submitted.

Creditors of CSKA confirmed that no one has been in touch to inform them that repayments have been made or to offer rescheduling of debts.

BFS revoked the licences of CSKA and three other teams for participation in the domestic A Group and the European tournaments due to the clubs' debts to NAP.

CSKA has no chance of regaining its licence for the European tournaments as all deadlines have been missed, but it could do so for the A Group.
