I remember reading a post about the Greek teams in Australia by one of the posters that was very interesting. Therefore, I got the idea to make a topic dedicated to all the Greek teams in the diaspora. We can both bring up news concerning the teams or we can just share the clubs' Facebook links in order for them to get more likes, followers etc. I'm not sure about the criteria but I guess the clubs must have a Greek history and must be operated by Greeks. Here's some Swedish clubs: Akropolis IF - they are currently playing in "gamma ethiniki", where they finished 2nd after a Kurdish team last year. They went to play-off but unfortunately lost both the even games. History: the club was established in 1968 by the Greek society of Stockholm.

As you can see by looking at their badge, they are co-operating with Apollon Kalamaria.

As Apollon, they don't have a professional team and they play in the lowest division. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IfAlexanderDenStore/?fref=ts Be sure to like them and show them your support! Don't forget to post if you know any teams in the diaspora! :D
When I meet other Greeks or diaspora born and raised or living abroad, I am always interested to hear what their life and customs are like. I would very much like to hear a few things about yourselves and how life may differ depending on which part of the world you live in. Look at my example below and, if you like, use the same template. Please also feel free to add something. Background: One parent Greek the other English, born and raised in England Did your parent(s) teach you Greek/Do you speak Greek?: Yes Education: English school with Greek school every Saturday up until the age of 11, university in England Friend groups: A mixture of friends from all over the world, we have family friends that are also of a Greek and English mix, a few Greek friends in Greece Greek influence in daily life: Music, a film every now and again, news and football The last time you went to Greece: Summer 2016
