Australia misses out as Cyprus gets Greek Cup final

·

The Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) has announced that the Greek Cup final is scheduled to take place at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia, Cyprus on May 20.

This comes despite a spokesman for the Cyprus Police expressing they have not received any formal notification of such an arrangement.

“We have not received any official information regarding this event, aside from media reports,” Christos Andreou said in an interview with Super Sport FM 104.0.

“We will need to analyse a lot of data, such as whether or not fans will attend and how many, before making any decisions or taking any positions on the matter.”

The GSP Stadium has a capacity of 22,800 seats and is used as home ground by APOEL and Omonia.

It was recently reported by The Greek Herald that the EPO had submitted a request to the Australian Football Federation to host the Greek Cup final in Australia this May. The president of EPO, Takis Baltakos, had sent a formal document to Chris Nikos, his counterpart in Oceania.
