Greek Soccer Legends Encourage a New Generation of Players

September 21, 2021

ATHENS — The soccer legends of Greece’s 2004 Euro championship team are working to mentor young players and foster an environment of healthy competition through a series of youth soccer tournaments around Greece.

On September 18, more than 200 girls and boys took part in an event in Piraeus as part of the Legends 2004 Youth Cup program.

The program seeks to create an atmosphere of warmth and camaraderie in sporting competition and to instill an ethic of teamwork, sportsmanship, collaboration, and grace in victory and defeat alike. The participants, players under the age of 12, are members of local soccer academies.

The sixth and final educational tournament in the series, organized by the nonprofit Champions for Life, will take place in Rethymno, Crete in September 25.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
