Greek FA responds to call for audit saying FIFA has already passed it financially fit for purpose

September 13 – The Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) has responded to calls from Greek Super League clubs for an independent financial audit saying it has received an excellent financial rating from FIFA .

The EPO said in a statement: “FIFA gives credit to the Hellenic Football Federation for its financial management. This resulted from the financial audit carried out by the auditors of the World Football Federation, namely the FIFA Member Associations Department.”

The EPO cites a letter sent by the head of the Economic Governance Program, Meryem Atouk, congratulating the federation on its economic governance and encouraging it to continue in the same fashion.

“The results of the FIFA audit and the reward of the Federation are the most important justification of the administration for the economic policy it follows. At the same time, they are also a response to the baseless accusations that are sometimes thrown against EPO for its financial management,” said the EPO.

“It is noted that in the immediately previous audits by the same auditors, in 2020 there were 28 observations and strong recommendations for a complete restructuring of financial governance, in 2021 only one observation, while in 2022 there was no finding.”

The EPO made available the text of Atouk’s original letter, which said: “FIFA administration would like to congratulate you for the good results during the last Central Review as no finding was raised by the auditors. We really appreciate your effort and encourage you to continue adopting good practices.”
