Spiro Papaioannou – Friend of the SMFC

It is with deep regret and sorrow that South Melbourne FC announce the passing of brilliant clubman Spiro Papaioannou.

Spiro passed away on Sunday, January 9, aged 77. His wife Panagiota and his children Anastasia and Theodore, Ioannis and Lynette, Fotini and Dimitrios and Thomas survive him.

Spiro was a regular fixture at both Middle Park and Bob Jane Stadium and was famous for his vending of assorted snacks to the South Melbourne faithful.

He has been a great servant of the club and it’s community and we ask the entire SMFC family to channel its thoughts and prayers at this sad time towards Spiro and his family.
