Apollon Ladies FC is a women's football team from Cyprus, established in 2007. It is the leading club in the country, having won nine consecutive doubles.[1] It is associated with men's side Apollon Limassol.

Apollon made headlines after beating two-times European champion Umeå IK in their second appearance in the Champions League. This is regarded as one of the biggest surprises in European women's football.[2] Apollon reached the Round of 32, where it was knocked out by Zvezda Perm. Apollon again progressed past the qualifying stage in the 2011–12, 2012–13 and the 2013–14 season.
