AEK Athens drop out of top division

AEK Athens drop out of the Greek Super League for the first time in their 89-year history.

AEK Athens have dropped out of the Greek Super League for the first time in their 89-year history.

The Greek outfit suffered the plight after conceding a late goal against Atromitos on Sunday, but a points deduction would have almost certainly relegated the club regardless of the result.

Athens had already been deducted three points last week after their supporters were involved in a melee with Panthrakikos players, but the decision has not yet been made official.

If the points deduction does stand, the club will start next season on minus two points in the second tier.
