It was a memorable day in Thessaloniki for Iraklis fans as the club earned promotion to the Basket League after an 8-year absence. The Giraos easily defeated Kastoria 84:61 to record their third win in as many matches over their Macedonia rivals (two wins in the regular season and one in today’s playoffs) and secured their ticket to next year’s first division.

Iraklis were led in scoring by Polytarchou, who put up 23 points, and Kakaroudis added 21 points of his own. After the match, the players and home fans celebrated their team’s promotion in fashion as flares and chants filled the Ivanofeio Sports Arena.

Iraklis will join Ionikos in next year’s Basket League after the Nikaia side finished first in the A2 Basket League regular season.
