The Bulgarian Motorcycling Federation says it has reached an agreement to bring MotoGP to the nation from the 2012 season.
BMF head Bodgan Nikolov said a five-year deal had been secured with MotoGP rights-holder Dorna.
"We signed the agreement with Carmelo Ezpeleta and we're very pleased because no country from our region has hosted a motorcycle grand prix," Nikolov told Reuters.
"It's still not clear which track will host the races as we're still thinking over two options."
The news agency reports that a new circuit set to be constructed near the northern town of Dolna Mitropoliya is the most likely location for the event.
