Olympiacos Piraeus Football Team History
“Olympiacos Sports Club of Piraeus” was founded on March 10, 1925 by the merge of two clubs, the “Athletics and Football Club of Piraeus” and the “Group of Piraeus Fans”. The name was an inspiration by Notis Kaberos who wanted the title of the new club to express power, sports superiority, ethics, noble emulation and the Olympic aspiration in general. The people who contributed to this new effort belonged to the category of self-made businessmen of the Great Port.
The living potential of the newly founded Football Club was amazing. The football team managed to outshine its opponents and most importantly, its greatest rival, Piraikos Sindesmos. Olympiacos defeated some of the greatest teams in Greek Football history; Iraklis football team, Apollon football team and Aris football team where among the teams that, in 1925, lost to Olympiacos with a wide difference. Most of the team’s footballers also played with Piraeus medley team, against Athens medley team. Their victories helped Olympiacos be acknowledged by all football fans.
