WATCH AS PAOK FANS CELEBRATE THEIR FIRST GREEK SUPER LEAGUE TITTLE IN 34 YEARS!!!

In wild scenes of celebration, fans packed along the city's seafront — hundreds holding red flares — to catch a glimpse of the winning team on a double-decker bus after its 5-0 win over Levadiakos sealed its undefeated run to victory.
At the heart of the party was Ivan Savvidis, a stout Russian billionaire who transformed the club and bet heavily on the northern Greek economy. Supporters chanted his name as he walked between two rows of flame machines during a celebration ceremony.
The 60-year-old businessman, whose family is partly of Greek ancestry, took over PAOK in 2012 and rescued the club from financial ruin, settling debts and building a 63 million euro ($70 million) roster equal in value to that of the country's largest club, Olympiakos.
PAOK was founded in the mid-1920s by Greek refugees who fled to the city after a catastrophic war with Turkey and owes much of its loyal following to that history. Not only veterans and fans feel that burden.
Vieirinha, PAOK's Portuguese captain, wasn't born the last time the team won the league. On Sunday, in tears, he received a standing ovation from 25,000 fans at Toumba Stadium, playing the last five minutes despite an injury.
"A great team like PAOK does not deserve to wait 34 years to win a championship," Vieirinha said. "What we lived through this past year is a dream for every PAOK fan. I am one of them. I come from them. For me, PAOK means everything."
