Newly formed Rugby department for Panathinaikos A.C !

Panathinaikos A.C. has formed a Rugby department!
Initially, the team will participate in a series of tournaments in order to promote and spread the sport of Rugby in Greece (not a popular sport in the country at this moment).

The first meeting of players, coaches and the management of Panathinaikos A.C, was held today at our home, the historic “Apostolos Nikolaidis” field.

Panathinaikos’ President, Elias Michalarias addressed the team:
"We welcome you to Panathinaikos A.C! In good health, we can do great things! We at Panathinaikos, despite the crisis that our country faces and despite all the difficulties we all have in our work environment, we want to move forward; we want our sports departments to succeed and move forward.
We welcome the sport of Rugby to Panathinaikos A.C.
This effort aims at both the success of the Club as well as at the success of the sport as a whole. Greeks will learn about the sport and it will be spread through Panathinaikos.
Rugby is a sport that requires fighting spirit, fitting perfectly with our motto: Μαχητική Ψυχή (Fighting Spirit). It is mandatory to have a fighting spirit in order to achieve goals both in the field and in life.
You will soon find out that Panathinaikos A.C is a family. Together we will grow Panathinaikos A.C and will spread the sport in Greece.
Hope for a good start!”

The team manager, George Tsatsaronis, said: “It is an honor to be part of the big Panathinaikos A.C family! Thisshowswearegrowing. Fromnowonwewillworkhard. Wehavetoproveourselves. Wewillgive everything we got!”

We at Panathinaikos Supporters Abroad wish all the best to the new Rugby department!
