The 2014 replay saw Greek club Lailapas face Turkish opponents Karsiyaka, both wearing kits identical to those the two sides were wearing during their abortive clash over eight decades ago.

Karsiyaka mayor Huseyin Mutlu Akpinar was among several who switched teams mid-play, firstly captaining Karsiyaka and then scoring a goal for Lailapas.

CHIOS ISLAND, Greece.
 On May 10, two teams from both sides of the Aegean Sea will face off against one another to finish a football match that began 84 years ago.

Turkey’s Karşıyaka, from the western province of İzmir, will meet with Lailapas, from the Greek island of Chios, to complete a football match that was halted on Dec. 7, 1930, after just three minutes due to bad weather.

“This game symbolizes the fraternity between the two peoples, I hope this game counts as a step towards better relations between the two sides,” said Lailapas team coach Michael Kottakis.
