Football is clearly the number one sport in Greece, both in terms of the number of active players and public interest. Despite excellent television coverage, attendances at domestic league matches and games involving the Greek national team continue to impress. Football is the sport with the best commercial opportunities and the highest level of investment in the construction of stadiums, training centres and leisure facilities. The national team celebrated its greatest days in winning the European Championship in 2004 and by qualifying for the FIFA World Cup? in 1994 and the European Championship in 1980, while Greek giants Panathinaikos (Athens) have recorded some excellent performances in European club football. Just a few of the Greeks currently playing their football in other European countries include Grigoris Georgatos (Inter Milan), Zizis Vryzas (Perugia), Ioannis Amanatidis (VfB Stuttgart), Demis Nikolaidis (Atletico Madrid), Nikos Dabizas (Newcastle United), Angelos Charisteas (Werder Bremen), Akis Zikos (AS Monaco) and Traianos Dellas (AS Roma). Greece has also hosted several major football events, including the Final of the 1983 European Cup, the Final of the 1994 UEFA Champions League, the Final of the 1987 UEFA Cup and the finals of the U-18 European Championship in 1995.

UEFA World Cup Qualifiers
The Union of European Football Associations, almost always referred to by its acronym UEFA is the administrative and controlling body for European association football, futsal and beach soccer. UEFA represents most of the national football associations of Europe, runs national and club competitions in its area, and controls the prize money, regulations and media rights to those competitions. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia transcontinental nations such as Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, and Russia, are members of the UEFA rather than AFC, as are Israel and Cyprus which lie entirely in Asia.
