APOEL Futsal is a professional futsal team based in the city of Nicosia, Cyprus and it is a part of the APOEL multi-sport club.


APOEL's futsal team was formed in 2012[1] as APOEL City Futsal F.S.C., after APOEL board came to an agreement with City Futsal F.S.C. to take their place in the Cypriot First Division for the 2012–13 season.[2] The team had a successful first season, finishing fourth in the league and reaching the semi-finals of the cup.

The next season (2013–14), the first after the departure of City Futsal FSC and the club's rename to APOEL,[3] the team achieved their first domestic double, winning both the season's Cypriot First Division[4] and the Cypriot Cup,[5] their first two major trophies after only two years of existence as a futsal club.
