Athletic Club Omonia Nicosia (Greek: Αθλητικός Σύλλογος Oμόνοιας Λευκωσίας, ΑΣΟΛ; Athlitikos Sillogos Omonoia Lefkosias, ASOL), commonly referred to as Omonia, is a Cypriot football club based in Nicosia. The home ground of the club is the GSP Stadium in Nicosia.

The club was established on 4 June 1948, joining the Cyprus Football Association in 1953 and is the most popular club in Cyprus. Omonoia has won 24 league championships, 19 Cypriot Cups and 16 Super Cups.[2] Omonoia holds an outstanding record of 14 championships in two decades, between 1970-1989 and remains the only team to have won the championship six times in a row, between 1974-79 and the Cypriot Cup four times in a row, between 1980–1983. In the UEFA rankings of the Cypriot clubs Omonoia is currently ranked in third place.[3]

As an athletic club, Omonoia also operates basketball,[4] volleyball,[5] cycling[6] and futsal. The latter one is being particularly successful, having won the league and cup in three consecutive years since 2011.[7]

History[edit]

Creation and early years (1948–1953)[edit]

On 23 May 1948, the board of APOEL sent a telegram to the Hellenic Association of Amateur Athletics (Greek: Σ.Ε.Γ.Α.Σ.), with the opportunity of the annual Panhellenic Track and Field Competition stating its wish for the "communist mutiny" to be ended. Club players considering this action as a political comment on the Greek Civil War distanced themselves or were expelled from APOEL.[8]

On 4 June 1948, Dr. Mattheos Papapetrou organized a meeting to form a new club in Nicosia. Many players expelled from APOEL were also invited and on 17 June 1948 Omonia was established. Along with other left-wing teams such as Nea Salamina, Alki Larnaca and Orfeas Nicosia, Omonoia helped create in December 1948 the Cyprus Amateur Football Federation. Omonoia took part in the CAFF league until 1953, having won four out of five played championships and five out of five played cups. Omonoia was then accepted by the Cyprus Football Association to participate in the Cypriot First Division.[9]

Beginnings in the Cypriot First Division (1953–1969)[edit]

After joining the Cypriot First Division in 1953, Omonoia only managed to place seventh out of nine teams in the 1953–54 season, barely avoiding relegation. During that decade, the club's best placing came during the 1956–57 season when the club finished in third position.

The team would make its closest push for the title during the 1959–60 season after finishing second, one point behind Anorthosis Famagusta.[10] The following year, after seven seasons in the First Division, the club would win its first title in 1960–61 season.[10] Omonia, in that season would score 91 goals in 24 matches on their way to their first ever Cyprus First Division title. Omonoia won their second title during the 1965–66 season.

Golden era (1970s–1980s)[edit]

Sotiris Kaiafas is not only considered one of Omonoia's all-time greatest, but the best footballer in the history of Cypriot football.

Omonia won its first trophies of the decade in 1972, when the club won both the league and the cup. Led by a young Sotiris Kaiafas, Omonia won seven league tittles in the 1970s, six of them were consecutive (1974–1979).[10] At the end of the decade, Omonia had a total of nine championship titles and three cups. At the end of the 1979 season, Omonia trailed its arch rival APOEL by two championships. In 1976, Sotiris Kaiafas would go on and win the European Golden Shoe for his single-season 39-goal performance.[11] In 2003, he was awarded the UEFA Jubilee Awards for the Best Cypriot Footballer of the 20th century.

The 1980s was a successful decade for the club as it won an additional seven Cypriot League Championship titles including another five consecutive in 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, and in 1987 and in 1989.[10] As the 1980s came to an end, Omonia had won 14 Cypriot championship titles, becoming the most successful team on the island at the time.[10]

General decline (1990s)[edit]

The 1990s would prove to be less successful than the previous two decades. During this time, Omonia only mustered one Cypriot League title during the 1992–93 season. It would be eight years before Omonia would see its next title. In 1997, Omonia signed the German Rainer Rauffmann, who would later become the second top goalscorer ever for the club. With the help of other Omonia great and then captain, Costas Malekkos, and a young Costas Kaiafas (the son of Sotiris Kaiafas), Rauffmann would become top scorer of the Cypriot First Division in the 1997–98, 1998–99, 1999–00 and 2000–01 seasons and led Omonoia to two titles.[12]

Revival (2000s)[edit]

After a disappointing eight seasons, the 2000s decade began with a trophy. Omonia celebrated its 18th Cypriot league championship title in 2001. Now captained by Costas Kaiafas, Omonia would win its 19th Cypriot League Championship again in 2003. Since 2003, however, the team would stumble and be without a title for the next several years. After numerous seasons of poor signings and underachieving, Omonia's reigns would be taken over by new chairman and team president, Miltiadis Neophytou in 2008.

Michalis Konstantinou, mostly credited for helping the team reach its 20th championship title[13]

The team would soon be put back on track starting in 2006, beginning with the signing of Cyprus international goalkeeper Antonis Georgallides. Omonia would continue its star-studded signings by acquiring Cypriot stars that had been playing abroad, such as Elias Charalambous and Stathis Aloneftis. Omonia would then make headlines with the shocking signing of all-time leading scorer for Cyprus, Michalis Konstantinou. In 2009, Omonia would also sign another Cypriot star, Konstantinos Makrides. En route, Omonia would also acquire young Cypriot hopefuls, 21-year-old Dimitris Christofi and 20-year-old Georgios Efrem. Efrem, who had been playing on the youth team of Arsenal and later Scottish side Rangers, would be the final piece to the puzzle needed to win its 20th Cypriot league championship. After putting the proper pieces in place, Omonia did just that. During the 2009–10 season, led by new captain, Elias Charalambous, Omonia would not lose a single derby, including play-offs matches against either, APOEL, Anorthosis Famagusta nor Apollon.

Head coach Takis Lemonis left the club after disappointing results and Dušan Bajević became the new coach in October 2010,[14] but was fired in April 2011.[15] He was replaced by Neophytos Larkou. Omonia would not be able to repeat as Champion during the 2010–11 regular season, and instead had to settle with finishing second,[16] despite the addition of yet another young Cypriot rising star, Andreas Avraam. The club, however, was to end on a positive note: under interim coach Neophytos Larkou, Omonia defeated Apollon Limassol in the Cyprus Cup final to win their 13th cup title.[17]

Omonia spent a difficult year but managed to win their 14th cup starring André Alves, who scored the winning goal against AEL Limassol.[18] Under the guidance of newly-appointed director of football Nickolas Danskalou, Omonoia managed to finish second in the Championship and third after the playoff rounds, all but assuring they would qualify for the second round of the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League.[19]

Financial crisis (2012–present)[edit]

Head coach Neophytos Larkou left the club in September 2012[20] and Toni Savevski was then appointed as coach. The team begun the season with a great win but found its second success after several games. A disappointing first round proved enough to exclude the club from contesting for the championship or the cup. The team managed better results in the second round, finishing the season in third place.[21] Thousands of fans answered the president's call to donate as much as they could and the financial issues of the club improved. Omonoia's final match ended in a 3–1 victory over AEK Larnaca. Omonoia was knocked out in the semifinals of the cup by AEL Limassol.

In 2013, Omonoia begun the new season with Savevski as manager, but he was sacked halfway besides positive results. Miguel Ángel Lotina was hired as the replacer[22] but was sacked just 37 days later.[23] Kostas Kaiafas, ex-player was then appointed as the new coach.[24] The club's financial difficulties returned despite the massive fundraiser organized the previous season. Omonoia ended fifth in the league,[25] finishing its worst season in 56 years, since 1957–58.[10]

In August 2014, Omonia was knocked out of the Europa League playoff stages by Dynamo Moscow. The club issued a complaint to UEFA regarding the refereeing of the match by Alexandru Tudor.[26] In early September, the club stopped supplying the fans' group Gate-9 with tickets resulting in the group's abstention from matches.[27] Two weeks later, after a meeting between the president and the coach, it was decided that tickets were to be supplied again to Gate-9.[28] Omonia managed to finish fourth in the league. The team was eliminated from the Cypriot Cup semi-finals by APOEL.[29]

Name[edit]

"Omonia" is the Greek word for "concord", showing the contrast of the club for discord and disruption.[30]

Colors and badge[edit]

Omonia's club colors are green and white. Their current alternate kit is black and green. Omonia's badge has a green shamrock in a white circle.[31] Green symbolizing hope.[30]

Stadium[edit]

Omonia's current stadium, New GSP Stadium

Since 23 October 1999, Omonia has been using the 22,859-seat New GSP Stadium, the largest stadium in Cyprus. They share the stadium with local rival APOEL. Omonia played in the Makario Stadium from 1978 until 1999 and in Old GSP Stadium from 1953 to 1978. When the club was first created, it used the Goal Stadium (1948–1953).

Omonoia is the most popular club in the country with polls, showing that 27.6% of asked Cypriot football fans stating they supported Omonia. The fans are known for their left-leaning, socialist character, with over 80% stating in a survey that they associate themselves with the Progressive Party of Working People[32] Omonia is also traditionally regarded as the club of Cyprus's working-class.[33] Many of Omonia's supporters can be seen waving banners bearing Che Guevara's image.[33] Gate-9, the team's ultras group, was established in 1992.[34] The group occupies the North stand at the GSP stadium during home games.[33] Omonia's fans are well known for their passion. The record for most tickets sold in a single season for Omonia stands at 162,061 tickets sold during the 2009–10 season. The Omonoia fans which are called Gate 9 have friendship with other teams supporters such as Hapoel Tel Aviv and Standard Liège fans.[35]

Financial crisis and 2013 Pan-Cypriot fundraiser[edit]

By the end of February 2013, Omonia was struggling to meet the UEFA criteria due to the economic crisis that had engulfed the club. The club's president then decided to start a fundraiser and called for the supporters of the club to donate as much as they could. Hundreds of events were organised island wide with the motto; "ΕΙΜΑΙ ΟΜΟΝΟΙΑ ΔΗΛΩΝΩ ΠΑΡΩΝ" meaning, "I'M WITH OMONOIA, I DECLARE MYSELF PRESENT."[36] Current and former players contributed by signing autographs and selling club merchandise. Although the situation at the beginning was described as grim, money poured in from all over the island and from abroad including England and the United States. In about a month-and-a-half, €3.5 million was collected from the club's supporters.[37]
