Greek Match Abandoned After Gun Toting Owner Storms Pitch

The Superleague's website recorded the match as a 0-0 draw and showed AEK still leading the table on 55 points, with Olympiacos in second on 53 points and Paok still in third on 50.

Savvidis was surrounded by members of his entourage and chaos ensued as supporters also hurdled hoardings to join him on the pitch.

When PAOK will have the opportunity to remedy that slump is now anyone's guess after Deputy Minister of Sport George Vassiliadis announced all matches would be suspended until further notice.

Firstly the players protested to the referee for several minutes before fans got over the barriers and invaded the pitch, by this point things were bad but things were about to become a lot more serious because of PAOK's president Ivan Savvidis.

In the 89th minute of the PAOK-AEK match on Sunday, the hosts were negated a game-winning goal after the referee reversed the call on the field.

According to a report from MARCA, Savvidis went straight towards the referee to argue the disallowed goal.

It was actually the second time Savvidis had invaded the pitch during the match.

That sparked angry scenes in the stands and numerous people entered the pitch, including PAOK owner Ivan Savvidis and his security team.

The latest incident of violence at PAOK's Toumba Stadium in the northern city of Thessaloniki prompted opposition political parties to raise questions over the government's relations with Savvidis, a former Russian MP who holds stakes in the Thessaloniki Port Authority, media and other businesses.

However, the game had to be suspended and the score-line read 0-0. "It won't start again unless there is a clear framework, agreed by all, to move forward with conditions and rules". We're on an indefinite interruption.

"I continue to have faith in us and the Greek justice system and I will continue to do everything in my power, in order to protect PAOK's legitimate interests".

"We are talking with UEFA".

World governing body FIFA told CNN in a statement that it was aware of the incident and "fully condemns such behavior", though "as the incident occurred in domestic competition, all disciplinary action falls under the jurisdiction of the Greek Football Association".

This match was taking place on Sunday, March 11.
