Athens soc­cer club Pan­io­n­ios es­caped rel­e­ga­tion from Greece’s top flight yes­ter­day but Thes­sa­loniki team Irak­lis lost its ap­peal against de­mo­tion from the Su­per League. A Hel­lenic Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion ap­peals com­mit­tee up­held an ear­lier de­ci­sion not give Irak­lis a li­cense to take part in the Su­per League. The Thes­sa­loniki club was said to have been un­able to pro­vide cer­tain of­fi­cial as­sur­ances about its fi­nances, as rules laid down by Euro­pean soc­cer’s gov­ern­ing body, UEFA, de­mand. The Su­per League will now make ar­range­ments for Asteras Tripo­lis, the third of the three teams that were rel­e­gated, to re­main in Greece’s top divi­sion.
