Sunday's Greek Super League clash between PAOK Thessaloniki and AEK Athens was abandoned when the president of the home side marched onto the pitch with a gun in his pocket.
The decision sparked chaos on the pitch at Toumba Stadium; PAOK players remonstrated with Kominis over his decision to deny a goal, which would have seen their side move to just two points behind league leaders AEK.
Subsequently, AEK accused the PAOK president of having threatened the referee, Giorgos Cominos, when he entered the field, carrying a pistol in his holster.
Tensions were high with the match still goalless between Greece's rivals deep into the second-half, but PAOK thought they had come away with three points as Fernando Varela found the back of the net in the 89th minute.
"We have made a decision to suspend the Championship indefinitely", Greece's Deputy Culture and Sports Minister Georgios Vassiliadis told National Greek broadcaster ERT following a meeting with the Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

However, firearms reportedly are prohibited in Greek soccer stadiums, even in the case of on-duty police officers.
