Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met this evening, at Maximos Mansion, with the President of UEFA, Aleksander Čeferin.

Mr Čeferin thanked the Prime Minister for Greece’s firm position against the formation of a closed European Super League consisting of some major clubs, including before the Court of Justice of the European Union. They also discussed initiatives undertaken by the government, in collaboration with UEFA and FIFA, in an effort to resolve problems that Greek football faces.

At the beginning of their meeting, the Prime Minister told Mr Čeferin that Greece “is clearly moving in the right direction”, in order to address issues that raise concerns about Greek football and expressed the government’s determination to resolve “all outstanding issues”. He also pointed out that “To the extent that we can intervene, with respect to the independence of the federation, we will do what is necessary to make sure that we leave all legacy problems in the past”.

“We have your support, we have the proper direction and guidance, and we will do that,” added Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
