Michael Dogantzis is a first generation Greek Canadian. Michael was born in Montreal in 1975 before moving with his family back to Greece. Michael played his youth soccer in the city of Sparta where his love of Olympiacos was formed. A gifted player, Michael ended up playing professionally for 1 season in Bari, Italy before suffering a career ending injury. Michael moved to Canada in 2000 and settled in the Waterloo Region with his wife Betty and their 2 sons. Mike’s passion for soccer and love of Olympiacos FC never left him, and after building a very successful business, he made the decision to commit himself to bringing Olympiacos to the Kitchener - Waterloo Region.
