History

Foundation

At the beginning of 2015 BFUnion discussed the idea of teams from A Group having a second team in B Group or lower. Ludogorets Razgrad, Litex Lovech, Levski Sofia, CSKA Sofia, Cherno More Varna and Botev Plovdiv showed interest in having a team in B group. At the beginning of June 2015, BFU announced that only Litex and Ludogorets had applied to have their 2nd teams in B Group. Later Litex II and Ludogorets II were added in B Group for the 2015–16 season.

2015–16 Season

After the administrative relegation to the B Group on 21 January 2016 (for the 2016–17 season) of Litex Lovech, the 2nd team will be relegated to the V Group for the 2016–17 season, but the team will complete the season in the B Group until end of 2015–16 season and as the first team won't complete in A Group, most of the players could complete for the 2nd team and play for the first team in the Bulgarian Cup since Litex Lovech is part of semifinals.
