seeing a football (soccer) game in Athens?

Hello,

If one wanted to see a soccer game in Athens in Sept, is that possible?

Are games going on at that time in/ around Athens?

Any info on teams, locations, and tickets would be appreciated.

I've never been to a Pro Football match before.

Thanks

Hey Crumz23 and welcome to the Forum....you won't have any problems here finding a spot to see 'soccer' as it is a #1 sport in Greece...you can hear the sets and crowds viewing from the streets! ...no lack of places here... am sure the locals will advise of any particular 'haunts' they visit to view :) Enjoy!

They link to the club web sites, where you will find all information about the different clubs.

There are two major football clubs in Athens, AEK (www.aekfc.gr) and Panathinaikos (www.pao.gr), and one in Piraeus (Olympiacos, www.olympiacos.org). AEK and PAO use the Olympic stadium as their home ground, while Olympiacos uses the Karaiskaki stadium. You may find info on various Greek stadiums at www.stadia.gr.

During recent years, Olympiacos dominated the championship, but AEK and Panathinaikos are strong rivals. There is still no information on specific games for September, as the draw takes place during the summer, so you will have to wait until then to find out the schedule and times. In general, games are rarely sold out, so you can easily find tickets, especially for a game in the Olympic stadium, which almost never fills during football games (except of a game between any two of these three teams).
