1985 cup final

I have just found this forum, and wonder, whether anyone can provide me info about the 1985 Bulgarian Cup final? All I know is that there was some scandal there, and therefore the two teams (Levski and CSKA) were dissolved and renamed, to be named back later, and several key players were suspended for life, to be forgiven later (e.g. Stoichkov). I tried to find more details about this on the web, but I did not succeed so I thought to ask here, perhaps there is someone around who knows more about it.

Being just three years old back then and not really interested in Bulgarian football, I can not give you the details but here goes - there was a fight in the tunnel after the game, a lot of players involved, some of them (three, IIRC) were banned for life by the communsit party officials but a year or so later forgiven and allowed to play again. CSKA was renamed - "Sredec" and Levski was renamed - "Vitosha". And if I am not mistaken Botev Plovdiv who was third in the championship after the two grands, got the title.

“But we're a university! We have to have a library!" said Ridcully. "It adds tone. What sort of people would we be if we didn't go into the library?"

"Students," said Senior Wrangler morosely.”
