The 2011–12 season is Omonia's 57th season in the Cypriot First Division and 63rd year in existence as a football club. On 22 June, the first training session for the season took place at GSP Stadium. The pre-season tour this season was in Poland. The team entered the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League third qualifying round on 28 July and won the first leg in Cyprus against ADO Den Haag. One week later, they eliminated the Dutch team and were drawn against Red Bull Salzburg in the play-off round. A comeback and a 2–1 win and the team still had the chance to advance to the group stages. Omonia lost 0–1 in Austria and were eliminated on the away goals rule. Omonia won the Cypriot Cup last season and therefore played in the Cypriot Super Cup on 7 August against the rivals APOEL but the team lost 0–1.
