Fotios "Fotis" Papoulis (Greek: Φώτης Παπουλής; born 22 January 1985) is a Greek footballer who plays for Apollon Limassol in the Cypriot First Division.

Career[edit]

Born in Athens, Papoulis began his football career with Acharnaikos F.C. in the Gamma Ethniki. He made his Super League debut in January 2010 when he signed a professional contract with Panthrakikos. During the second half of the 2009–10 season he competed for the club. He achieved three goals in twelve matches in Super League Greece. Οn January 2011, he left the club, signing a six-month contract with OFI helping it to return to the Superleague Greece after the play-offs. He stayed in the club the following year, helping it to avoid relegation as a new-comer in the league and had a remarkable year. He succeeded in being nominated as a MVP of the week [1] while he was selected among the top 18 players in the 2011-12 Superleague season.[2] In summer 2012 after two years in OFI, Papoulis signed a one-year contact with Cypriot club Apollon Limassol.[3]

Papoulis' 2014-15 season was the best season of his career. Papoulis, wearing for three years the jersey of Limassol club already counted a Cypriot Cup and two European appearances in UEFA Europa League tournament phases. If he managed to win the championship with the club, would undoubtedly be the best season. These years in Apollon he was the top scorer for the blues with this year being the most productive in the league.[4]

On 13 September 2015, Apollon Limassol secured the bragging rights over AEL on Sunday night after a Papoulis strike on the hour saw off their derby rivals and also sent Pedro Emanuel's side into second place alongside APOEL and AEK Larnaca. The Limassol derby had been marred by fighting prior to kickoff in the streets close to the Tsirio Stadium between fans from both sides.[5] On 18 May 2016, he opened the score in a 2-1 win for the Cup final against AC Omonia.[6]
