The best for the ellinismo would be to merge all clubs into one, two or three clubs. Instead of having 20 teams with low attendances and without proper academies it would be better to have one club with high average attendance and a major academy. Of course, that would require people to swallow their pride and sucrifice their positions in the various smaller clubs. But in the long term, that would be the best.

Wow. So many clubs. It's beyond my imagination.

South Melbourne Hellas got knocked out by Bentleigh. Every new dawn A-Leaguer would have cheered at this result.

Shame that more Greek clubs didn't make it.

also keep in mind geographical restraints...

it takes in Melbourne and Sydney 1 hour in peak traffic to dive 15 km...

imagine taking kids to training if we merged and closed down clubs..

 

in regards to academies...its not about club resources...its the 'australian system' that makes it impossible to have proper academies.

You might be right guys, I don't have the insight you have in what's happening down under. 

The best scenario in that case would be to have everyone supporting their local greek club AND supporting South Melbourne Hellas in their strive for an A-league spot

And they did it. Next season Akropolis IF will play in the Superettan, Sweden’s second tier. With 4 games to go the lead Division 1 with an advantage of 13 points.
