Minister of State Giorgos Gerapetritis met with UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin in Switzerland, as part of the government's efforts to restart professional Greek soccer on a new footing.
He also invited Ceferin, on behalf of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, to visit Greece and contribute technical know-how for the restructuring of the sport.
"We have worked hard with our fan community to have a pro-Western approach and sporting behavior with opponents, including respect and warm hospitality. We are an example in the Balkan region, with no excesses, nationalist or racist chants," said Eroll Salihu, secretary-general of the Kosovo Football Federation.
UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin has expressed concern over the decision to employ the video replay system (VAR) at the 2018 World Cup, saying the technology still needed more testing before it can be considered for use in the Champions League.
