Orfeas Nicosia (Greek: Ορφέας Λευκωσίας) is a football club from the Cypriot capital of Nicosia. It was founded in 1948. The club colors are yellow and green. It has participated in the Cypriot First Division four times, from 1959 until 1963. The club's highest achievement is finishing 7th in the 1961-62 season.[1][2]
