FK Belasica

FK Belasica are a club in the south-eastern part of the country from Strumica.  For the up coming season, they will play in the 3rd division after being relegated last year.  Only a few years ago they were playing in the first division, and had played twice in the UEFA Cup.  The most famous player to come from the club is Goran Pandev who currently plays in Italy. Unfortunately, the club has run out of money, which reflects their current position in Macedonian football.  I was in Strumica in November 2009 for the Macedonia-Canada friendly, but have recently returned for a month.  In many ways it is now my second home.  Later this month I will attend some of the 2012/13 European Women's Champions League qualifiers in Strumica and Turnovo.
