As first reported by, both Panathinaikos and team owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos are being disciplinary reviewed by the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague.

This, however, is the typical procedure. In both Panathinaikos and Dimitris Giannakopoulos cases, financial penalties will be applied by the EuroLeague.

The club is expected to be sanctioned due to its fans’ behavior during the last minutes of the game played against Partizan Belgrade in OAKA. After Kevin Punter hit a three-pointer the game was disrupted.

Some fans kicked promotional banners, which ended up on the court. At the same time, objects started to be thrown on the court, forcing the referees to temporarily interrupt the game for 10 minutes.

Talking about the owner of the Greek powerhouse, he heavily criticized the EuroLeague referees in a post shared on Instagram after the game against the Serbian team.

“The refereeing standard is appalling and rigged. Things are getting worse every week”, he said in the post.
