At noon at 15:30 his funeral will take place at the Holy Church of the Three Hierarchs, while his burial will take place at the Thermi Cemeteries.

Giannis Michalitsos “passed away” at the age of 66, having suffered from health problems in recent years.

The announcement of Mars
The ARIS family became poorer as of today, as Yannis Michalitsos “passed away” at the age of 66, after a difficult and tough “battle” with the serious health problems that afflicted him.

A loyal “soldier” of our Association with many years of significant contribution.

The deceased was a native of ARIS and served our team in almost all positions.
Yiannis Michalitsos wore the jersey of ARIS in the 70’s and 80’s, linking his name to the great team of that time.

A coaching career followed. Initially he worked as an assistant and then as a coach (either as a first or as an assistant), while he was also a scout for our team for a number of years.

Undoubtedly, this is a big chapter in the football career of ARIS.

PAE ARIS expresses its deep sorrow for his loss.

We express our sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.
Have a nice trip Yannis Michalitsos…

Let the soil that will cover you be light…

OFI’s announcement

Another “hero” from the golden age of our team, who wrote his name in history, due to winning the cup in 1987, is no longer with us.

Yiannis Michalitsos, only wore the OFI jersey for two years, but managed to be loved by the world, to “bond” and love our team during his stay in Crete, recording a total of 47 appearances and five goals with the black and white.

In the history of OFI, he will always have a special place, as well as in the hearts of all of us.
