The Greek Cup 1995–96 was the 54th edition of The Greek Football Cup, or Greek Cup for short.

Tournament details[edit]

Totally 72 teams participated, 18 from Alpha Ethniki, 18 from Beta, and 36 from Gamma. It was held in 6 rounds, included final.

AEK Athens were awarded the cup after 13 years, shattering in the Final 7–1 Apollon Athens, that were presented for first and unique until now time in a Greek Cup Final. It was also the last title, after 4 championships, that was gained by AEK Athens, with Dušan Bajević coaching.

After the First Round (phase of groups), AEK eliminated in succession Iraklis, Olympiacos, Panathinaikos and Athinaikos, while in a big surprise Apollon qualified in semi-finals against PAOK, with 3–1 in Toumba Stadium. For one more time, AEK Athens and Panathinaikos were drawn as opponents in the groups round, in order to be balloted again confronted in quarter-finals.

Demis Nikolaidis played in the Final as footballer of Apollon, a few days before his transfer in AEK Athens. Also remarkable was that Giannis Pathiakakis, coach of Apollon then, would coach AEK Athens 4 years later and would win the Cup.

First round[edit]

The phase was played in a single round-robin format. Each win would gain 3 points, each draw 1 and each loss would not gain any point.
