Greek club PAOK Salonika’s president, Ivan Savvides, has received a three-year ban from all football stadiums in the country following an incident this month when he stormed onto the pitch while carrying a gun.
The March 11 fixture between PAOK and AEK Athens, a crucial tie in Greece’s title race, saw a PAOK goal controversially disallowed, prompting Savvides’ charge onto the pitch.
PAOK have also been docked three points for the incident, dealing a blow to their title hopes.
Savvides is a Georgia-born businessman who was also a deputy in the Russian state Duma, the country’s lower assembly house.
