No I don’t think they should get sponsored by the government because they’re just not good enough.
In 2009 APOEL made the country’s highest sporting achievement when they made it to CL’s QF, yet never received a dime!
Nobody comes anywhere near this achievement.
WTF are u talking about when an athlete gets sponsored it will be by F'N Company like frigging Adidas or Nike cause of Merchandising and the reason they do this is because when a person wins something like the Olympics he becomes a local hero Kontides in Example has Opap backing him even if he got the third they would get a sponsor deal with him. That is what sponsorship is it will not be by your org but by a third party.
Apoel didn't made the highest sporting achievement it made the highest football achievement as a team in 2009 by the athletes back then, plus in the football standards of cy the highest achievement as a singular player is non other than Kaiafas. I am not a football fan but in know a few facts.
Also anyone who competes in the Olympics which is the oldest revived sporting event in the modern history of sports is documented for Life while most team sports today players get forgotten unless they achieve something singular like the one Kaiafas won.
