A fiesta worthy of Champions

Time for celebrations for Olympiacos adding their 46th championship in the club’s illustrious history.

For the second year, due to Covid19-related measures, our fans were not allowed to celebrate with Pedro Martins and his men their success. Yet, technology met tradition and on Wednesday evening, the country’s top club celebrated one more championship title.

Our fiesta kicked off with memories and great moments of this year’s Olympiacos matches on their way to the title. Thanks to holograms, our viewers watched all championship years parading before their eyes in a magnificent spectacle.

Then, the future met with past as 45 athletes of our Academy transferred all 45 trophies that are now joined with this year’s one.

European Champions of our Women Water Polo team made their appearance along with the trophies, who brought more glory to the name of Olympiacos with their amazing achievement a few days ago.

This year’s trophy started its journey from the city that gave birth to the Legend of Greek sports. From a granny’s balcony, next to a flower pot, in Porto Leone, then through the Port, Main Market, Municipal Theatre, the Maniatika and Kaminia district, before it reaches home, the Georgios Karaiskakis stadium.

A very special moment midway the trophy’s itinerary was the appearance of 95-year-old President of our Veterans Club, Giorgos Darivas, at the very building where the legendary Miras tavern used to stand, the place where the idea of Olympiacos as born in 1925.

Our stadium was named after a Greek Revolution hero and Olympiacos could not but honor this iconic individual who meant so much for this place. A giant who fell in battle, fighting over this land, and for this reason “Georgios Karaiskakis” is now a landmark for Piraeus to remind us of the great heroes of those times of fighting. Its meaning becomes even stronger with the occasion of the bicentennial of the Greek Independence War. Actually, this hero’s bones lie buried across our stadium since 1835!

The holograms of the 1821 heroes marched across the pitch and then it was up to folklore bands to set the rhythm and stage folk dances from the islands, Pontus, Crete and Epirus.

5 men wearing their traditional outfit (islands, Epirus, Mani, Crete and Pontus) carried the championship trophy to deliver to the hands of the stars.

Super League Vice President Mrs Katia Koxenoglou welcomed the Olympiacos leader, the person who built this recent 10-year red-and-white empire featuring 9 championship titles.

Our club’s sports director and world champion Christian Karembeu and technical director Vassilis Torosidis followed to receive their medals. Then it was time for our side’s architect Pedro Martins along with his associates to step on the platform followed by the medical staff, our team manager Thodoris Kokkinakis and first team crew.

One by one, our footballers walked along the lined-up trophies and enjoyed their own moment of glory.

This year’s captains made their appearance last and raised the trophy for the 46th championship title in our club’s history, high in the sky.
