Greek fans

There are several strong supporter groups, among which are sure to stand out:

Olympiacos fans( GATE 7) 

the club’s popularity increased during the 1950s after winning consecutive titles and setting several records, and they became the best-supported football club in the country. Traditionally, Olympiacos used to represent the working class, but the club has always attracted fans from all the social classes and their fanbase is not associated with any specific social group anymore.

PAO fans ( Gate 13)

Panathinaikos Football Club is a Greek professional football club based in Athens. Founded in 1908, they play in the Super League Greece and are one of the oldest and most successful clubs in Greek football history. They have won 20 Greek Championships and 17 Greek Cups.

Panathinaikos is the most successful Greek club in terms of achievements in European competitions. They have reached the European Cup (later changed to UEFA Champions League) final in 1971 and the semi-finals in 1985 and 1996.


Gate 4 is the largest PAOK supporters club. They generally support all clubs within the PAOK Sports Society, and mostly wear black and white symbols, which are the club’s colors. The group as a whole traditionally maintains good relations with the Serbian FK Partizan football club supporters Grobari, as well as with the fans of OFI Crete.

Gate 4 members are known to be fanatic supporters of their team, frequently using numerous types of crackers and fireworks to create a supporting atmosphere for their team and also a hostile “welcome” to the opponent team.[41] The Toumba Stadium is infamous for its hostile atmosphere. These elements combine to allow the attribution of the Toumba Stadium as “Black Hell.”
