Vangelis Mazarakis is the president of Keffalinia-Ithaki Football Union and also a member of three important committees: Substitute President of the National Teams Committee, President of the International Amateur Football Committee and President of the Beach Soccer Committee.
So, he is obliged to travel a lot because of those administrative positions. He has to follow the National Team everywhere, to attend international competitions and meetings about Amateur Football and to visit the amazing beaches of Greece and the nice islands where Beach Soccer tournaments are usually taking place.
During 2016, for example, he visited Melbourne, Sidney, Vienna, Ljubljana and also Xilokastro and Rhodes island in Greece. In 2015, Vangelis Mazarakis "checked in" Zurich, Nyon, Geneva, Milan, Constantinoupolis, Luxemburg, Dubai, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Belfast, Bucharest, Rome, Pescara, Vienna, Yerevan, Kiev and Madrid!
People who love to travel must be really jealous of Vangelis Mazarakis' position. Of course, the experienced official is not paying for his expenses during those trips, since he is visiting these places for the HFF's business and not for vacations.
Still, if we also remind you the shocking wages of the Hellenic Football Federation's high-level employees, which were recently excluded, you can easily understand why the Football Unions (and not all of them) received only a 4.000 euros subsidy from the HFF in 2015...
