Well, you should have no problem speaking English in Crete, most people speak it there because of the tourists.

Tell me when are you going and I'll tell you if there is an OFI game at the time.

No, I don't think it gets sold out like... ever. They play in the enormous Pankritio stadium.

(By the way, in any given weekened, if OFI doesn't have a homegame, Ergotelis does. Ergotelis is the second team of Iraklio, leaders of the second division and they are meant to play really nice football... and their fans create a very nice atmosphere. So if you can't catch an OFI game, you can catch an Ergotelis one).

Amoroso that's not true.There can be home games for OFI end Ergotelis in the same weekend.Next week for example OFI plays Atromitos at home and Ergotelis play Ilisiakos home too!!


Ergotelis plays good football for a second division team but is not in good form lately(2 drwaws against weaker teams).There is always a very nice atmosphere but the attendance is too low for Pankritio(imagine 1.000 or 2.000 people in a 30.000 seats Stadium).

arbenbeslij, here are some pictures of the Pankritio (OFI + Ergotelis home stadium) http://www.stadia.gr/pankritio/pankritio.html


btw george, Ergotelis last year got some good home support. They averaged 10,000 per game and filled up the Pankritio vs OSFP and PAO. It was sad to see them go, but they should be back this year again.

That's true but the most of them weren't Ergotelis fans.
They just filled the stadium because of the good atmosphere that Ergotelis created in every match and because of the new stadium.

No football in Greece at that time. Unless there is a friendly game.
