Last year’s runners-up Gas Pamvohaikos VRAHATI suffered a setback as they lost their home game to A.E.K. ATHENS 1:3 (23-25, 25-22, 19-25, and 23-25). A.E.K. ATHENS was promoted to Greece’s first division at the end of the last season and has embarked on this adventure with the hope to achieve good results right by their first appearance.
Another rookie debuting in the first division, Panaxaiki – a team that hails from the city of Patra – could delight their home fans by beating one of Greece’s most decorated Volleyball clubs, namely Panathinaikos ATHENS 3:1 (25-18, 25-27, 25-23, and 25-23).
PAOK THESSALONIKI beat Niki Aiginiou 3:1 (27-29, 25-20, 25-14, and 25-17) and in the last game on schedule for the first round Ethnikos ALEXANDROUPOLIS – which is set to play in this year’s CEV Volleyball Cup – needed two and a half hours to edge at the tie-break their neighbors of Aris THESSALONIKI (25-20, 26-28, 25-13, 24-26, and 15-7).
