The Ministry of Youth and Sports will provide the Bulgarian coaches and technical teams with a decent salary. This is provided for by the "Program for personnel provision of sports for high achievements for 2023 and 2024" developed by the team of the caretaker minister Vesela Lecheva. 

The document has been completely restructured and aligned with the goals and objectives of the licensed sports federations, which will be encouraged to increase their specialization. The main tasks in the program are also related to the preparation and participation in the Summer Olympic Games in Paris 2024 and the Winter Olympic Games in Milan Cortina 2026.

In the document that was presented to the federations, it is also written that the Ministry of Youth and Sports will exercise systematic monitoring and control over the budget funds.
