Omonia FC Stats & History

Amid tensions in Cyprus during the Greek Civil War, many left wing players were expelled from APOEL Nicosia. In the wake of their expulsion, they created AC Omonia and became founding members of the Cyprus Amateur Football Federation. They won four titles in the Omonia team stats in five seasons before joining the Cypriot First Division in 1953.

Success wasn’t immediate in the top flight for Omonia. During their first season in the Cypriot First Division, they finished in seventh place out of nine teams. In the 50s, their best finish was third place in 1956-57. Finally, they won their first Cypriot First Division title in the Omonia FC stats in the 1960-61 season. Omonia won their first Cypriot Cup in 1965 and added another Cypriot First Division title in 1966.

After their title win, they made their European Cup debut. Unfortunately, they lost 10-1 in the first round on aggregate to 1860 Munich. Regardless, Omonia emerged as the best Cypriot club of the 1970s. They won their first domestic double in 1972, and won six consecutive league titles from 1974 to 1979. All-time Omonia leading scorer Sotiris Kaiafas won the European Golden Shoe in 1976, as he scored 39 goals.

The 1980s were another excellent period for Omonia. They managed to win four consecutive Cypriot Cups from 1980 to 1983 and five straight league titles from 1981 to 1985. They finished the decade with seven Cypriot championships and five cup wins. Still, they were unable to find European success during this time.

Omonia FC Team Records

Omonia began to decline in the 1990s and only managed to win one Cypriot First Division title during the decade. German striker Rainer Rauffman was the leading scorer in the First Division in four consecutive seasons from 1997-98 to 2000-01, though. He led Omonia to league titles in 2001 and 2003. After winning the 2020-21 Cypriot First Division title, Omonia finally made their Europa League group stage debut. The 2022-23 season marks the second time in three years they’ve made it to the group stage.

The Europa League odds don’t give Omonia much of a chance to advance from a group with Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sheriff Tiraspol in it. Betting advice suggests they could be competitive, though, as this is their third season in a row playing in European competition.
