Greece suspends domestic football activity following arson attack
The domestic football activity has been suspended in Greece until further notice following an alleged arson attack on the house of the head of refereeing committee.
Referring committee head, Giorgos Bikas, has found his house in Halkidiki in the north of Greece suffering an arson attack on Wednesday morning. The fire caused several damages to the home but neither Bikas nor his family were at the house during the time of the attack.
The temporary Hellenic football federation board, appointed by FIFA last month, has released an official statement to announce the suspension of all domestic football league and cup competitions until the end of an investigation into the cause of fire.
The suspension won’t affect the national team’s campaign in FIFA World Cup qualifications, nor the clubs representing the country in the Europa League.
It is worth a mention that Olympiacos are leading the Superleague table with 21 points after eight games, while Warda’s Panetolikos are in seventh place on 11 points.
In the cup competition, Panetolikos are playing in Group G alongside Panthrakikos, Atromitos and Kallithea. Warda and his teammates have lost their only game at Atromitos 1-0 thus far.
