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.

Kontonis cancelled the cup competition in March after fan violence at a semifinal match, but later reversed the decision in the face of FIFA's threat of an international ban.

On Thursday, AEK accused the Greek soccer association of favoring its opponents with the "underhand and infuriating" selection of match officials for the final.
