Hello, my name is Nikos. I was born and raised in Athens. After I spent 5 years in the UK, I came back in 2016. A few hours after I arrived, I drove with friends 2 hours to an away game. Half of my life is connected deeply with my team, sports and the culture around them. I was raised playing basketball in small teams and playing football with friends.
Panathinaikos is the team of Athens, the capital of Greece. It was founded in 1908 and we have a huge history not only connected with sports but strongly connected with the social and political life of the city. Basketball here has adopted a mentality closer to the football games, and not similar to the European or US basketball games. You may see the same passion and voice level that you experience in the football games. Matches for the Euroleague are usually better to attend, as Greek league games do not attract so many people.
The days will start with a quick tour around the historic stadium, food and beers before moving to the stadium where the match will take place. We will have the most amazing, authentic and local pre-match with other Panathinaikos to bring you into the mood.
As usual, drinks may follow after the game. I will take you to a local bar where we will be able to share stories, hang out and have a good night out!
