Evangelos Grammenos has been elected as the new president of the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO).

The election took place in Athens on Friday, following a year in which the Greek national association’s affairs have been administered by a normalisation committee appointed by the world football governing body FIFA, owing to matters related to violence at football matches, as well as domestic political issues.

Grammenos, who is 57, is a lawyer by profession and has spent many years within the administration of Greek football. His mandate as President will run until 2020.

“I want to assure everyone that we will bring equality and fairness,” he said. “Football in Greece needed to take a new path, and that change was unavoidable. Lots of effort and planning is of the essence now, and we are determined to do all that”.
