Greece’s financial police raided the headquarters of the country’s soccer federation (EPO) in Athens on Wednesday.
An official, who declined to be identified, confirmed to Reuters that the financial police were looking into possible financial misconduct by the federation.
EPO released a statement claiming that “a team of financial police, accompanied by prosecutors, came to the federation to conduct a financial audit.”
In recent years soccer in Greece has been plagued by problems. Governments have promised to impose order however top teams have had to deal with financial problems, whereas closed door matches are becoming more frequent as hooliganism is on the rise while general attendance drops.
