Doxa Dramas and AE Karaiskakis promoted to Football League
Doxa Dramas and AE Karaiskakis have been granted a place in this year’s Football League after Iraklis withdrew from the league earlier this week.
Doxa Dramas and AE Karaiskakis will take the places of Iraklis and Agrotikos Asteras in this year’s Football League. The two sides finished second in their respective groups in last year’s Gamma Ethniki and were automatically granted a place in the Football League, after Iraklis withdrew from the league earlier this week (filed for bankruptcy).
Earlier this summer, Agrotikos Asteras decided to not partake in the second division which left an open spot in the Football League for the new season. The federation had originally scheduled a promotion playoff between third division sides, Doxa Dramas and AE Karaiskakis, but the playoff was canceled, rescheduled, and canceled again. However, Iraklis’ departure from the Football league opened an additional team slot and the federation decided to automatically grant both Doxa Dramas and AE Karaiskakis a place in the second division for the new season.
