Dragao stadium looks awsome.


By the looks of things, if some of the new stadiums in Greece get built, there is no reason why Greece shouldn't be able to host a Euro.

You debunk the stadiums in Portugal or do you think that Greece could also?

ya, I think that Portugal and Greece are the countries most similar in matters of population and area of territory...
Portuguese people eat feijoada and cozido à portuguesa (traditional Portuguese food "heavy")

Putting aside the amazing stadia, what amazed me most in Portugal was the behavior of the football fans there. I hope that one day we'll reach their lever of respect to the opponent...

There are big Portuguese and Greek communities in Toronto. We all had fun watching the Euro cup in 2004 together with a little bit of rivalry. Since this city is so multicultural every ethnic group gathers in their neighbourhoods during the World and Euro cups to watch the games. Whichever 'country' wins the game that part of the city (Greektown, Little Italy, etc) shuts down and has a spontaneous street festival.

Yes, half my high school was Portuguese mostly from the Azores. Overall, I believe both our communities are made up of over 150,000 people each, in the Greater Toronto Area.

My cousins live in Mississauga, a suburb east of Toronto. You know? The Azores Islands were the leading emitter of Portugal to Canada, particularly Toronto. (I do not like the Azorean accent )
When unfolded the waves of emigration from Greece to the outside? In Portugal was mainly from the decade from 50 to 80 of the last century mainly to France, U.S.A, Germany, Canada, Luxembourg, Australia... What were the major destinations of the greeks? Once I read a book tour of American Express on Greece that about 1/3 of the greek population emigrated, lived in foreign. It's true?

Mississauga is a suburb West of Toronto. Most Greeks live in the East end of Toronto, I grew up and live in the West end. Most Greeks immigrated after WWII, various regions of Greece had immigrants leaving for various countries. World War II vastly changed the map of Europe and also caused the greatest mass migration of peoples. Here in Toronto, many Greeks immigrants came from the Peloponnese region, but we also have Greeks representing all parts of the country. I know from friends of mine whose parents are from the island of Eubea that many of their relatives immigrated to Belgium. What happened in war torn Greece is like what happens in many other war torn countries, whoever first immigrates to a safe nation usually sends word back to their family, and so others from the same region migrate to that same foreign country. The majority of Greeks outside of Greece settled in the US, Canada and Australia, there are also many in Germany, Belgium, France the UK and other countries. In some places like Sicily and Alexandrea Egypt, Greeks have lived and immigrated there for thousands of years. According to what I have read, half of Greeks live outside of Greece, including people like myself who are not Greek citizens but who have parents that are both Greek citizens. Although half the population of Toronto is made up of people who were born in other countries, the immigrant experience has brought people together in a new and positive ways. My parents at first could not speak English, neither could our Portuguese neighbours, yet they all got along with their broken English because they shared a common struggle, to make a better future for their kids.

Thanks! Since I know some think Portuguese, are two peoples who are close culturally and physically? They told me that the only major difference was the language and religion (Portuguese - Catholic, Greek - Ortodox)... I said I do not know if this is the reality. If the immigrants and their children returned to Portugal spend 11 million to 16 million. The Nelly Furtado was born in Canada but his parents are Portuguese, his blood is Lusitanian.

No no, I wasn't criticising the Portuguese stadiums, they are wonderful.
What I meant was 7 of the stadiums were 30,000 capacity, and three 50,000 or more.
If the new stadiums of the big clubs ever get built(Panathinaikos will definetly get a new stadium, only question is will AEK, PAOK and Aris do the same?), Greece will certainly have the stadiums to back up a serious Euro bid.
