Snow-Covered Pitch Turns Greek Football Game into Farce (photos – video)

A football game for the Greek Cup between Lamia and Panathinaikos, descended into a farce on Thursday, as the pitch was covered with snow.

The referee decided that the game should start as scheduled, despite the fact that the lines on the pitch were practically invisible.

To complicate matters even further, the players of Lamia were wearing white shirts and shorts.

For the record, Panathinaikos was humiliated losing the game 4-1.

Lamia, a town in Phthiotis, central Greece, was particularly affected by snow over the last few days.
