Government delays Greek Cup final again amid security concerns
Risking sanctions from FIFA, Greece's government has postponed Saturday's Greek Cup final, citing security concerns.
Stavros Kontonis, a deputy minister for sport, announced the decision Friday, noting that the final between champions Olympiakos and AEK Athens would be delayed for "at least 10 days."
Fans had already been banned from the game at the 69,000-seat Olympic Stadium.
On Thursday, AEK accused the Greek soccer association of favoring its opponents with the "underhand and infuriating" selection of match officials for the final.
