Hearts legend Takis Fyssas is returning to Edinburgh to meet the Hearts fans!

Headline Events is honoured to be bringing The Greek God back to The Athens of the North on Sunday June 26th. Takis will be live on stage at the famous O2 Academy (formerly the Corn Exchange).

One of the finest footballers ever to wear maroon, Takis arrived at Tynecastle as a European champion, having played in every game of Greece’s extraordinary Euro 2004 win against host nation Portugal. The Euro final was played at the Estadio da Luz, home of Takis’ then club side, Benfica, where he also won the Portuguese league and cup.

George Burley and Vladimir Romanov signed Fyssas in 2005/06, in a memorable transfer window that also saw Rudi Skacel and Edgaras Jankauskas move to Gorgie. At the end of that legendary season for Hearts, he lifted the Scottish Cup and clinched a Champions League qualification spot.

Takis Fyssas will be forever remembered by Jambos for being a ‘Rolls Royce’ of a football player and for his ecstatic celebrations when he helped the club secure a Champions' League place at Tynecastle. He was also adored by teammates for his fun personality and respected for his professionalism. He is now Technical Director for the Greek national football team; we are delighted he has found the time to return to Scotland to meet his fans.

Standard: entry to An Audience with Takis Fyssas and access to O2 Academy pay bar.
