Greeks Ready For Football?

Greeks are fanatical about football – soccer that is. When the Greek national football/soccer league won the Euro 2004 championship, there was delirious celebrations all over the county of Greece.

Formed in 2006, The Super League Greece is the highest professional football league in Greece. The league consists of 16 teams and runs from August to May, with teams playing 30 games each.

Most Greeks support one of the big three teams of greater Athens: Panathinaikos, AEK or Olympiakos. And thanks to the 2004 Olympics, the teams have two magnificent new stadiums to play in. The first two teams share the Olympic Stadium at Marousi and the Olympiakos team plays at the Karaiskaki stadium.

The Greek Football Cup, commonly known as the Greek Cup, a the Greek football competition run by the Hellenic Football Federation. Because it involves clubs of all rankings playing against each other, there is the possibility for the “underdogs” from the lower divisions to become "giant-killers" by eliminating top clubs from the tournament and even possibly winning the Cup. The current holders of the Greek Cup are Panthinaikos, who beat fellow Super League Greece team Aris in the 2010 on April 24, 2010.
