Spectator Sports in Athens

Athens has a rich tradition in sports, and the country’s sports performance has been equally impressive in the recent years with many achievements for national athletes and teams.

The organization of the 2004 Olympic Games led to the addition of new stadiums and training centers to the city's athletic infrastructure with the high standard sporting facilities being available for prestigious sports competitions and events.

Greek fans are particularly passionate and vocal about sports, especially football and basketball, with basketball arenas and football stadiums reaching the maximum capacity on weekends. The excellent athletic venues combined with the high level of sports performance and the city's history, safe and secure environment provide a laudable link between sports and culture and transcend the sportsmanship of the Olympic Ideal of Ancient Greece.
