Rouf is a neighborhood of Athens, Greece. It is located in the west of the Athens' centre, between Piraeus and Petrou Ralli avenue. Rouf is named after a Bavarian businessman who, during Otto reign, bought large areas in this location to make a farm. When the railway passed from this area the local station was named Rouf.[1] So this area got a name. During interwar period a camp was built in Rouf. In 1947 the local team of Rouf was founded with name Asteras Rouf and later renamed to PAO Rouf.[2]
