The Hellenic Cricket Federation (Greek: Ελληνική Ομοσπονδία Κρίκετ) is the governing body of cricket in Greece. The current President is Joseph Nikitas. Greece was accepted into the European Cricket Council (ECC) in 1995. The federation's headquarters are on the island of Corfu where Greek cricket is mainly played.
Cricket was brought to Greece by the English who occupied the Ionian Islands for 50 years. Many of the players and coaches are Pakistanis, but there are also several British and Australianexpats who play. Greece came runners-up in the 2005 European Affiliates Championships that took place August of that year. However the Greek team was relegated to the fourth division in the European Championships, and banned from playing for a year, due to illegally having unregistered players of Australian descent in the team.
Greece has 15 official clubs of which 13 are on Corfu, one is in Athens and one is in Thessaloniki. Cricket has been played in Corfu since 1823 but remains a minor sport in Greece, with almost no media coverage around the country.
In early September 2012 the European Division 2 T20 Championships were held in Corfu. Hellas was captained by former Hampshire wicketkeeper Nic Pothas.
