After reaching the semi finals of the tournament, Kingston City FC President, Sam Koulos, said in a statement, “Congratulations to the Greek Community for organising such a wonderful event and it reminds me of the old days of the Hellenic Cup when all Greek Clubs used to look forward to participating.”

Senior Football Director, Andrew Mesourouni, was delighted to see the South Melbourne Hellas in the finals of the Greek Cup.

“It will be amazing if we can become the first Greek team to win the Inaugural Greek Cup and I encourage all our fans to come and support the team this coming Saturday at Mill Park,” Mr Mesourouni said.

The teams which qualified for the semi finals are: Hellas, Clarinda, Mill Park and Olympiacos (East Kew). Semi final matches will be held at Mill Park Soccer Club on Saturday, February 4.
