Fans[edit]

The team supporters live mostly in Elbląg. The largest attendance at the Olimpia's stadium were recorded during the Polish second league games in the 1970s and 1980s: 10,000 attendants during the 1/16 final of the Polish Cup in autumn 1976 or circa 12,000 when Olimpia was playing in Second League in the mid-1970s.

Fans from Elbląg have their own association called 776 p.n.e. (the date symbolized the first Ancient Olympic Games) and Ultras Group called SMG'o6.

In 2004, the Olimpia fans have created their own team ZKS Olimpia Elbląg (historical club name). They have protested against club policy. After two seasons, the team reached the 5th level in the Polish football, but after several years, the two sides came to an agreement and merged the two clubs.

Another football team is based in Elbląg, Concordia, but only Olimpia has an organised fanbase. The Olimpia fans are have friendly relationships with supporters of Legia Warszawa and Zagłębie Sosnowiec.

Their main rivals are local clubs Stomil Olsztyn, Jeziorak Iława and to a lesser extent Arka Gdynia.
