The MVP award of the 1st matchday was awarded to Apostolos Giannou playing for FC Panionios, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA.
After the ceremony, the Panionios player stated:
"This is a very positive step and I hope both the team and I will continue like this. I would really like to be able to win the MVP award every week. I wish to dedicate it to my family, the team and the Panionios fans.
This was a positive step, we wanted to kick off the campaign with a win, we had a dynamic start in the championship and I hope we will continue the same way. To go as high as possible with Panionios.
We are a new team; risks are always there, but given the work we have done and the anticipated improvement, we will do better. We remain focused and we continue."
