AEK Larnaca FC


AEK Larnaca FC is a Cypriot professional football club based in Larnaca. The club was formed in 1994 after a merger of two Larnaca clubs, EPA Larnaca and Pezoporikos.

The club's name comes from the ancient Greek city of Cyprus, Kition, which was located on the site of today's Larnaca. The colours of the club are yellow and green, and their emblem is admiral Kimon, who died at the seafront while defending the city of Kition circa 450 BC, in a fight against the Persians.

He had told his officers to keep the news of his possible death secret. The quote "Και Νεκρος Ενικα" ("Even in death he was victorious") refers to Kimon.

The club's greatest successes are qualifying to the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League group stage and winning the Cypriot Cup in 2004 and 2018. AEK made its Champions League debut in a draw against Midtjylland on 19 July 2022.
