Asteras Tripolis Reprieved and Reinstated

The Appeals Committee of the Hellenic Football Federation reversed on Tuesday the decision that had found Asteras Tripolis guilty of bribery and has reinstated the Peloponnesian side to the Super League.
The first-degree decision, by the Disciplinary Committee of the Super League, had sent Asteras to the second division.
The federation’s committee, that had also reversed the decision to relegate Olympiakos Volou and Kavala until the Professional Sports Commission declined to give the two clubs a licence to compete, also acquitted Asteras president Giorgos Borovilos, who had originally received a three-year ban for allegedly giving the then Olympiakos Volou president Achilleas Beos 500,000 euros.
The verdict suggested that the recorded conversations of Kavala owner Makis Psomiadis with other people, saying that Asteras had bribed Olympiakos Volou in order to win the game between the two sides in March, do not constitute sufficient evidence to prove the Tripoli side’s guilt.
As a result Asteras can now return to playing in the Super League.
Meanwhile the league has once again postponed its meeting, set for Tuesday, that was supposed to decide which clubs would replace Olympiakos Volou and Kavala.
