Violent Clash Between Football Hooligans at Greek Cup Final Ends With €300,000 in Damages

Following clashes between PAOK and AEK fans before the Greek Cup Final on Saturday in the Panthessaliko Stadium in Volos, some 300,000 euros worth of damage is reported to have been inflicted on the stadium — a bill which the Hellenic Football Federation is responsible for, stadium manager Tassos Milanos said according to ekathimerini.com.

According to Milanos, there was concern prior to the match between PAOK and AEK that the stadium was not suitable to host the game between the two rival teams, and the end result has proven this sentiment to be true.

Over 2,000 seats were torn up in the stadium by hooligans, while the bathrooms, CCTV cameras and other equipment were completely destroyed.
