East York Soccer Club consultant and former president of the Ontario Youth Soccer League Bert Lobo was just 13 years old when he witnessed England win the 1966 World Cup.
Zissis Katsoulis is a diehard soccer fan. He had no choice. “When I was at home … I could hear when they scored,” he said. Back in Greece, Katsoulis grew up near the Panathinaikos stadium. “When we would go to the games, you could feel it.” Now living in Canada, Katsoulis follows his favourite time in the Panathinaikos fan club location at Pape and Floyd, in East York. “This … is the heart of Panathinaikos in Toronto,” he said, “17 years we’ve been in this place.”
