Located on the island of Crete, this state-of-the-art stadium can seat 27,000. It was primarily used as the venue for Football preliminary matches during the Athens games. It also has an eight-lane athletics track, shot put and hammer throw rings, swimming pool, multipurpose conference hall, and spacious dressing rooms.
The Pankritio stadium is in a truly beautiful setting on the outskirts of Iraklio, the capital of Crete.
Was used in the Olympic Games 2004 as a venue for football.
It is now used by OFI Crete and Ergotelis, the two major football team of Iraklio, as their home stadium.
Right beside the beach and holding 27000 fans in seated confort this stadium would be the perfect venue for football if it was not for the running track around it that distances the fans from the action.
On a summer's night there are still few better places to see a game.
