Piraeus Begins Reopening Sports and Training Facilities on May 6

ATHENS – Piraeus will gradually reopen its public sports facilities as of Wednesday (May 6) for athletes, the municipality said on Tuesday, but under conditions outlined by the government following the coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

The initial opening includes the Themistoclean Stadium, the tennis court at Votsalakia beach, the Agios Dionissios field, and the football field of Amorgos in the Kaminia area.

The facilities will open under specific schedules, for individual training only, and after appointments. In addition, the locker rooms will be out of use, and maximum training in the facilities must not exceed an hour. Athletes will be checked for high temperatures and will be obliged to fill out a form with entry/exit and contact information.


ATHENS - While scores of thousands of Greeks fled the country during a near decade-long eonomic and austerity crisis, seeking jobs and a better life in other countries, a relative handful are coming back, along with foreign investors drawn by low taxes.
