[*] Levski-Spartak (Sofia) had won the league; however, the title was awarded
    to Trakija (Plovdiv) (who had finished third behind Levski-Spartak and
    CSKA) "due to behaviour incompatible with the socialist morals" during
    the Cup Final between CSKA and Levski-Spartak.  Both CSKA and Levski-Spartak
    were dissolved (but re-emerged the next season as Sredets (later renamed
    CFKA Sredets) and Vitosha, respectively.  In 1990 Levski-Spartak (Sofia)
    were reinstated as champions (though meanwhile called Levski again).
