Panthiraikos F.C are a Greek Fourth Division side from the town of Fira in Santorini. Formed in 1970, the team has pretty much spent it's whole existence in the Greek Lowerleagues (Mainly the 5th tier - Or otherwise known as the Cyclades Football League). They have won that league 3 times (although only once in game) as well as the Cyclades Cup. The club did grace the 3rd tier of Greek football a few years ago but as we start the save we will be in the 4th Tier (Delta Ethniki 5os Omilos). More on that later
I guess the next obvious question is why the hell this team. In a million years, none of you would have guessed this side. Maybe you were expecting a bigger side. Well the reason is quite simple. The current situation with Covid has meant that my wife and I are now unlikely to go on a holiday this year and the place we did have booked was Greece. To be exact it was a couple of Greek Islands with you guessed it Santorini being the first stop. The town of Thira was going to be the perfect start to what would have been our last holiday before we become parents for the first time. Therefore, if i cant be there in real life, i might as well try and be there for my FM life.
Aims of the Save
So what do i aim for? The Champions League is the obvious end goal but that is a million miles away and might even be impossibe. Im well aware the island of Santorini might severely impact my ability to grow a club big enough to win the top trophy in Europe. In fact winning the Greek league against the relative powerhouses of Olympiacos and Panathinaikos is going to be hard enough and will probably be the crowning achievement to finish the save. However they are dream scenarios that i can't even comprehend right now. To start with here are my initial goals
- Turn Professional (Currently semi pro)
- Get promoted into the 2nd tier
- Get £1m in the bank (currently £980)
Once these have been knocked off... then we can set the bar a little higher.
