Greece make League call

Greece's government will announce tonight if the top flight Super League will resume this weekend after it was suspended last week following crowd trouble at the Athens derby, officials said on Wednesday.

Deputy sports minister Stavros Kontonis met with Super League president Giorgos Borovilos and Hellenic Football Federation chief Giorgos Girtzikisto to discuss the clubs' blueprint of proposals for tackling violence.

"There is no decision just yet (on restarting the league), Mr Kontonis will make his announcement on Thursday morning," Girtzikis said. "We had a very productive meeting where we analysed many issues that will come into effect over the next few days and more at the end of the season," he added.
