Since joining the Cypriot First Division, Omonoia has won nearly 1 out of every 3 league titles, qualifying it as the most successful club in Cypriot history. Prior to the 1953 season, no more than 8 teams participated in the Cypriot First Division, and half of which no longer exist. (APOEL Nicosia has won 21 titles. However half of them were won between the years 1935 and 1953, prior to the formation of AC Omonoia when Omonoia AC players still played for APOEL Nicosia). The Cyprus Football Association declared them as the Team of the 20th Century. Omonoia remains the only team to have won the Cypriot Cup 4 times in a row, between the years 1980 and 1983. As an athletic club, Omonoia also has basketball, volleyball, futsal

 and cycling sections.

History


AC Omonoia was founded in 1948, in the backdrop of the Greek Civil War. During a period of the most hostile political turbulence which spilled over into Cyprus, APOEL board officials sent a telegram the Hellenic Amateur Athletic Association (SEGAS) with intention of having its players sign allegiances to Greece’s right-wing, clearly violating the statue prohibiting clubs from being associated with any political groups.

After numerous players criticized the decision made by the board, and ultimately refused to sign any documents professing any political party or philosophy, those players were expelled from the club. Betrayed, but determined to carry on, those players and other club members, would leave the team and establish their own, separate clubs in the Cypriot capital, Nicosia. On 17 June 1948, AC Omonoia was born and by 1953, AC Omonoia it was admitted into the Cypriot First Division. Nea Salamina, ALKI, and Orpheas were also formed in the same year.

1960s


After a mediocre decade in the in 1953, AC Omonoia would make its closest push for the title during the 1959–60 season after finishing 2nd only 1 point behind Anorthosis Famagusta. More motivated than ever, the following year, after just 7 seasons in the First Division, AC Omonoia would go on and win its first title in 1960–61 season, sending shockwaves across Cyprus. Omonoia

 would go on to win their second title during the 1965–66 season.

1970s


During the 1970s, AC Omonoia had established itself as a force to be reckoned with. During the decade, led by a young, Sotiris Kaiafas, Omonoia would accomplish what no team in Cyprus would ever accomplish by winning 7 Cypriot League Championships beginning in 1972, including six consecutive titles in 1974, 1975, 1976, 977, 1978, and 1979. By the time the decade would come to an end, Omonoia had already surpassed the number of titles of Anorthosis Famagusta which was established in 1911 (nearly 40 years prior to the establishment of Omonoia). Omonoia was also well under way to catching its rival, APOEL, who also had a 13 year head-start on Omonoia. At the end of the 1979 season, Omonoia

1980s


AC Omonoia won an additional seven Cypriot League Championship titles including another 5 consecutive in 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, and again in 1987 and in 1989. As the 1980s came to an end, Omonoia had surpassed Anorthosis and APOEL for the most titles in Cypriot history. In the 20 year span between 1970 and 1990, Omonoia had won 14 Cypriot Championship Titles.

1990s


The 1990s would prove to be less fruitful than the previous two decades. During this time, AC Omonoia only mustered one Cypriot League title during the 1992–93 season. It would be eight long years before Omonoia would see its next title. The only ray of hope came in 1997 after the signing a German named Rainer Rauffmann

2009–2010

Supporters


Omonoia is by far the most popular club in the country having a following that is said to be nearly half of the island's population. Omonoia is known for the left-leaning, socialist character of its supporters. Omonoia is also traditionally regarded as the club of Cyprus's working-class. Most of Omonoia's supporters have adopted an outspoken stance against both racism and fascism alike. Many of Omonoia's supporters can be seen waving banners bearing Che Guevara's image and unlike many of Cyprus's right-wing teams, proudly wave the flag of Cyprus during matches. The extreme, more hardcore fans can be seen in Gate-9 and are commonly referred to as "Kifines" (or male bees). Thousands of them occupy the North stand at the GSP stadium during home games.

Omonoia's fans are well known for their loyalty towards their club. Their presence is seen on the fields in Cyprus during Cypriot League matches and throughout Europe. In 2003, Omonoia's fans broke their previous record for attendance in home matches with the improved figure of 140,740. The record was broken again the following year with 143,033 tickets sold in 13 home matches. The record now stands at 162,061 tickets sold during the 2009–2010 season.
