PAO owner to attend match against Olympiakos despite Euroleague ban

The owner of Panathinaikos basketball club, Dimitris Giannakopoulos plans to attend his team’s Euroleague match against arch-rivals Olympiakos Piraeus at OAKA in Athens on Wednesday, defying a ban imposed on him by the Euroleague disciplinary board.

Euroleague had initially penalised Dimitris Giannakopoulos with a one-year ban, with Panathinaikos’s owner appealing the verdict, which was at first rejected by the organisation’s disciplinary body before it reduced the ban to 5 months, with a €60,000 fine.
