The football team of AEK can now be proud of a new training center. The issue of renting the new center was hanging in the air for a long time, and postponement of the decision has caused in the media to appear many versions about the club ... The answer came during the latest extremely long meeting the management of AEC when it was finally voted on the signing of the lease of three stadiums and a building for the team in the region of Spata.

The sports center is still under construction, but the team is expected to settle in their “new home” by the end of July this year. By the end of July will be completed and submitted to be used the first two stadiums as well as new offices of the management of the team. Both stadiums will be with UEFA dimensions – 64x100. The third stadium, which the company builder "Mesogeya Sports centers” will submit by the end of this year is larger in size – 68x105. The annual rent for the two stadiums will amount to 600 thousand euros, and after the submission of the third stadium the amount will reach 720 thousand euros. At a time of severe economic crisis and shortage of funds in the treasury of the yellow and black team Adamidis plans to use the help of sponsors. Thus for the annual rent of the sports complex from the treasury of the team will be paid 300 thousand euros and the remaining amount would be paid by sponsors, which the builder company itself has committed to provide. According to the data of the Greek press, the amount which the team is paying for the rent of the Trakomakedones stadium where the players are currently practicing, the rent of the offices of the administration and additional running costs of AEK amount to exactly 700 thousand euro...

AEK will rent the sports complex for 12 years, at the end of which it will buy it. At what price it will do so, however it is still not clear ...

Another decision which the management of the club took during a meeting is for the share of the investors in the share capital of the team to become higher. The possibility recently discussed for the club's shares to be bought by ordinary people becomes a reality however, was excluded. The management of AEK explicitly refused for the fans to also participate in taking decision affecting the team.
