Overview

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!

Great Experience

Nikos was a passionate host who immersed me straight into the history and culture of his club, Panathinaikos. He was ready to answer any question about the club and had a green and black T-shirt ready for me of his supporter's section. A nice touch. We first met closer to the city center near the Panathinaikos FC ground to talk team history, visit their volleyball arena, and eat souvlaki while watching the football club on TV before driving to the basketball arena for the game. We arrived 90 minutes early to the sight of chants, flares, and a sea of green ready for tip off. Great scene! The chants continued throughout the game, despite a Panathinaikos loss. I could feel why a Panathinaikos game is considered the top atmosphere in European basketball. Nikos was accommodating throughout the experience between food and drink, transportation, and the ticketing process. I am looking forward to connecting with Nikos in the future for another sporting event.
