Greece Suspended By FIFA

Recommended Posts

Fifa has suspended European champions Greece and its member clubs from international competition because of government interference in the sport.

World governing body Fifa said the Hellenic Football Federation had broken rules on "the independence of members and decision-making in each country".

 

It means Greek clubs and officials are banned from European competitions.

 

And it jeopardises Steve McClaren's first game as England boss, which was due to be against Greece on 16 August.

 

The suspension will be in place with "immediate effect" and "until further notice", according to a Fifa statement.

Bloody hell!  Is this out of the blue or have I been oblivious to some investigations going on?

They have been warned before IIRC. I think it has to do with a new law in Greece that gives the government too much control over football clubs and the association.
