Evangelos Marinakis: “Olympiacos is always ready to offer in benefit of European Football”

The UEFA workshop that took place at the "G. Karaiskakis" stadium (October 25-27), in cooperation with the Hellenic Football Federation and Olympiacos F.C., was concluded today.

More than 110 representatives of the 53 european federations attended the meeting with KISS ( Knowledge and Information Sharing Scenario), along with UEFA media officers from all over Europe who work at the stadiums where the Champions League, Europa League, Euro and World Cup games are held. In the meeting, all notes from these competitions were discussed so that the regulations of the competitions be improved, in order to facilitate the function of all Media and teams in future games

Upon the conclusion of the workshop, Olympiacos FC President, Mr. Evangelos Marinakis addressed the participants and bid them farewell:

“On behalf of Olympiacos F.C., I would like to thank you all for your presence here and I wish that upon completion of this workshop, the final outcome would be the best for the future of European football.

Olympiacos F.C. hosted at the “G. Karaiskakis” stadium the three-day event, under the auspices of UEFA, and despite the economic crisis that our country is facing, it proved once more that life, in Greece, continues vigorously, heading towards a better future.

We proved it again last year, when we called on the world of sports and sports fans, and held in this stadium the “Match Against Poverty” – the eighth of its kind– during which the Olympiacos All-Star team took on the friends of Zidane and Ronaldo. The proceeds of the match went in part to the millions of people affected by the Haiti earthquake and by the Pakistan floods, and to the homeless and unfortunate of the district of Piraeus.

Olympiacos was also the first club, within the football community, to lend its support to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, in cooperation with the International Olympic Committee.

Moreover, in May, together with Michel Platini, we set the base for a long-term partnership between Olympiacos and UEFA. The workshop was the first step.

I wish you nothing but the best for the future and keep in mind that Olympiacos will always be there to offer its full support for the good of European football.”

On behald of UEFA, Communications Director Robert Falkner thanked the President of Olympiacos for his hospitality and excellent cooperation during the workshop. It is also worth mentioning that Olympiacos is the third club to host such a project in cooperation with UEFA. Only Manchester United and Bayern have had the honor to host such a workshop in the past.
