Μεγάλης ιστορικής σημασίας, όχι μόνο για την ομάδα του Παναθηναϊκού. Δυστυχώς, οι εγκαταστάσεις του δε μπορούν να θεωρηθούν πλέον αντάξιες, ούτε του ονόματος της ομάδας ούτε των σύγχρονων απαιτήσεων δ... more »Of great historical importance, not only for the Panathinaikos team. Unfortunately, its facilities can no longer be considered worthy, neither the name of the group nor the modern requirements of conducting competitions.

Greek football supporters are famous all around the world as very passionate and die hard fans of their clubs. I was in the neighborhood and it was interesting to have a look from the outside of the stadium.
Nice football field. Panathinaikos fc playing here. Nice atmosphere
