The mayor of Aegaleo announced yesterday that the much-anticipated works that will reform the city's stadium will begin next week. AEGALEO STADIUM was badly damaged after the 1999 earthquake that struck Athens. It was partly reconstructed and the Aegaleo FC returned to its home in 2002, but the main stand of Thivon Street has remained closed due to serious structural damage.

Works will commence within May and their first phase will be complete before the start of the new season. This first set of works (cost: € 3.9 million) will include:
- The construction of two new stands behind the two goals (Thessalonikis Street and Korai Street).
- The construction of a roof over Makris Street stand.
- The construction of new dressing rooms, press room and other facilities below Makris Street stand.
- Structural restoration of the stadium's main stand (Thivon Street).

The second phase of works will include the construction of a roof over the main stand and the installation of new seats on all the stadium's stands. However, funding for this set of works has not yet been secured.
