The Greek Team of the Century was a representative team chosen in 2004 in the sport of Australian rules football.[1]

Anthony Koutoufides and Peter Daicos were named vice-captains, Lou Richards was captain. The criterion for selection was that any Greek blood whatsoever constituted eligibility for the team. The farthest blood line was from Russell Morris, whose fourth great grandfather was Greek.[2]
