Panachaiki was hit with a huge penalty today by the Sports court for failing to have a certificate of participation in the Football League. The court announced that Panachaiki will be deducted 12 points in this year’s Football League. The decision is a huge setback for Panachaiki, practically relegating the side to the Football League 2 (third division).
With the -12 Panachaiki drops to 8 points behind Ergotelis and Olympiacos Volou who have been removed from the Football League. Currently, Agrotikos Asteras sits in the final “safety” place with 25 points, 17 ahead of Panachaiki. The court’s decision essentially sends the historic team from Patra to the third division.
