Greece Football Club Panathinaikos Athens Struggles To Pay Electricity Bills

Superleague Greece club Panathinaikos Athens "is in financial trouble and has difficulties paying the electricity bills for its home ground, the Olympic Stadium," according to the SID. A club spokesperson said, "It is true, there are several unpaid bills that have to be settled. For that reason, we are in constant talks with the stadium management. We expect that these problems will be resolved by the end of the year." One solution that could keep costs down is playing all remaining home games in the afternoon. This would prevent Panathinaikos from piling on additional electricity costs for the operation of the stadium's floodlights (SID, 11/28).
