Greek soccer owner brings gun onto pitch


ATHENS, Greece

Greece’s sports minister says league play has been suspended indefinitely, a day after the gun-toting owner of PAOK Thessaloniki marched onto the soccer field following a disputed goal at the end of a league match.

PAOK owner Ivan Savvidis walked onto the field accompanied by bodyguards, and appeared to be carrying a pistol in a holster around his waist.

Minister Giorgos Vasileiadis, speaking after meeting Monday with the prime minister, said league play was suspended and would not restart “if there is not a new, clear framework agreed to by all so we can move forward with conditions and regulations.”
