President Nikos Christodoulides on Sunday called on football fans in Cyprus to put an end to the violence in stadiums and on officials to avoid getting mixed up in cases of match fixing.

Christodoulides made statements while awarding Aris for their championship win at Alphamega Stadium in Limassol.

“What I ask is for everyone to work together towards the same direction,” he said.

“Firstly, we need to avoid incidents in the stadiums, and secondly, no more legal cases and red notices from Uefa. This does honour to no one.”

The President then congratulated Aris on their championship victory, the first one ever for the Limassol-based club.

“The championship win by a seemingly small team paves the way for other teams to compete for the title,” he said.
