Greek Court Decision Approves PAOK Stadium Overhaul Plan

THESSALONIKI – The Greek Supreme Court opened the way on Wednesday to the overhaul of the PAOK soccer facilities in Thessaloniki by approving a presidential decree containing a Special Urban Plan for the entire area of Toumba, where the outdated facility is located.

The Supreme Court added to the stadium another two plots of land based on a 2018 law, which will allow the facility to become a space for public use and tourist attraction. The plan includes directions for land use, the overhaul of the stadium for the Thessaloniki-based club, and landscaping, bringing the facilities up to date with the club’s obligations under FIFA and UEFA, as the court noted.

Responding about the decision, Macedonia & Thrace Minister Stavros Kalafatis said “the state resolved all issues related to urban planning and land use, allowing PAOK to acquire a modern stadium.” He stressed that “the new facilities will upgrade both the area of Toumba and Thessaloniki itself.”


PARIS — In a season when soccer violence has made an ugly comeback, a potential menace hangs over Wednesday's Europa Conference League final between Dutch club Feyenoord and Italy's Roma in the Albanian capital of Tirana.
