The president of Super League, Giorgos Borovilos, while talking to journalists, said:
"If Greek football is suspended from European competitions, it is threatened with disaster, sweeping along thousands of jobs and revenues amounting to millions of Euro annually for the State, coming from taxes and other contributions, such as the 10% from TV rights that is withheld in benefit of the Hellenic Police.
I wish to remind that despite the problems professional football is facing in our country, according to the estimates of a study completed by FEIR regarding the contribution of Super League in Greek economy, the "core" activities of the Super League (ticketing and participation in European competitions), result in over 180 million Euro in terms of GDP, whereas the activities of the Clubs in the "ecosystem" have a significantly higher impact on the GDP (2.1 bn Euro).
In terms of employment, this impact is estimated to exceed 40,000 jobs. Moreover, the activities associated with Super League contribute, directly and indirectly, approximately an annual total of 550 million Euro in revenues to the government, from taxes and employer social insurance contributions.
I hope that even at the last minute, reason will prevail, problems will be overcome and the appropriate solutions will be found, in order to not have problems with Greek teams, both in terms of clubs and the Greek national teams, in the UEFA and FIFA competitions."
