Costas Patavoukas will support Vangelis Liolios who has run for president in the upcoming EEC elections.
Through his personal account at facebook, The Former athlete and current coach made the relevant announcement:
the upcoming elections for the election of a new Board of Directors in the basketball Federation are undoubtedly the most critical of the last decades.
To be precise, since 1982, when with the predominance of George Vasilakopoulos and the assistance of other great personalities of the sport, such as Petros Kapagerov, Notis Mastrogiannis, Costas Politis and many more, the way was opened for Greece to become a world power.
But the most important thing that happened was that Greek basketball entered the Greek family in every possible way and was loved by the children, creating a broad base for development.
However, the seasons are changing and the evolution of the sport on a competitive and technocratic level emphasizes the fact that this cycle has closed and giving it all the appropriate values and the criticism it needs, a new management model must emerge.
With priority and emphasis on the young child who starts with dreams and ambitions the difficult path of the sport, the amateur club which must offer him the right conditions to love sports, to love the sport and to give birth to new talents, the clearing of roles of each player involved in the construction of basketball, the construction of a new development model and of course the return of our National team on the road to success.
These are the aims of the modern and ambitious plan of Vangelis Lioliou, who combines the enthusiasm and momentum of a teenager with the knowledge, experience and maturity of a successful entrepreneur. I stand by Vangelis Liolios for the crucial EEC elections!
“Basketball at this time needs us all as workers to make way for the younger ones.”
