Fans of the Greek football team Olympiakos forced their way into the grounds of the ancient Acropolis in Athens Wednesday during celebrations for winning this year’s championship.
The Culture Ministry said around 500 fans were involved in the incident, remaining among the site’s 2,500-year-old marble temples for about 15 minutes but causing no damage to the monuments.
“The staff at the Acropolis remained calm”
They contacted the police and tried to keep them outside the area but the number of fans was overwhelming,” the ministry said.
No injuries or arrests were reported, and the ministry statement said the site suffered no damage.
