UEFA kicks Greece`s Volos out of Europa League

UEFA has kicked Greek club Volos out of the Europa League because of its involvement in a match-fixing scandal.

Volos was scheduled to face Paris Saint-Germain in a playoff tie on Aug. 18 and 25.

UEFA says its disciplinary committee banned Volos from European competitions for an additional three years "deferred for a probationary period of five seasons."

Volos can appeal the decision by Monday - three days before the playoff dates.
