Panathinaikos earn promotion to Greek top flight
Panathinaikos have earned promotion to the A1 Greek Water Polo League after a two-year absence.
Panathinaikos defeated Nirea Geraka 9:8 in game two of the A2 Water Polo League semi-final series to sweep their opponents in two games (2:0) and earn a place in the Final series. By winning the series, the Greens gained automatic promotion to the first division along with the A2’s other finalists, Panionios. The two clubs will do battle for the A2 title.
The return to the top flight ends Panathinaikos’ two-year stay in the lower divisions of Greek water polo. The club’s amateur department is in a revival stage since Dimitris Giannakopoulos took over Panathinaikos A.C.
