AC OMONOIA NICOSIA





Stadium:




Athletic Club Omonoia Nicosia (Greek: Αθλητικός Σύλλογος Ομόνοια Λευκωσίας). Omonoia AC is a professional football club that plays in the Cyprus capital city Lefkosia (Nicosia). Omonoia, which means 'Unity' in Greek, has won 20 League Championships (tied for most), 12 Cypriot Cups and 14 Super Cups and 5 domestic doubles - in 1972, 1974, 1981, 1982 and 1983 all since 1948, qualifying them as the most successful team in Cyprus in the last six decades, since the league was expanded. 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. The club was established in 1948 and became a member of the Cyprus Football Association in 1953. As an athletic club, Omonoia also has basketball, volleyball, futsal and cycling sections.
Omonoia is the current 2009-2010 Champions after winning the Marfin Laiki League title this year, making them the most successful club in Cypriot history with 20 League Championships since their formation in 1948.


Since 1999 the club has played at the 22,859-seat GSP Stadium, the largest in Cyprus, which they share with local rivals APOEL and Olympiakos Nicosia. There are plans for the club to build a 32,000-seat stadium, located near Tseri, in the suburbs of Nicosia but CFA does not give clearanance for the new stadium to start building.
Previously Omonia had played at the old GSP Stadium (1953-1978) and the Makario Stadium (1978-1999). Both stadiums were also shared with APOEL and Olympiakos. Prior to 1953 the club had used the "Goal" Stadium.
The club's basketball team hosts its matches at the biggest indoor sport venue in the island, the Eleftheria Indoor Hall with a capacity of 6,800 seats while the volleyball team shares the Lefkotheo Indoor Hall which was built in 1980 with APOEL Nicosia. For the 2006–07 season, the futsal team uses the Indoor Hall of Melkonian institute which is a part of the institute complex and has capacity of 500 seats


There are two major fan clubs supporting the team, FAN CLUB. and Gate 9, which is the most active and biggest fan club. The club took its name from Costas Kaiafas's father, Sotiris Kaiafas, who won the European Golden Boot in 1976. Gate-9 was first organized in 1992. Since then, thousands of loyal fans have followed the team around the world. The club's fanbase largely comes from the working class and is identified with the Communist Party of Cyprus (AKEL). From the time of its creation in 1948, AC Omonoia was and is widely supported throughout Cyprus and it is by far the most popular team throughout the island.
In 2001, the club broke the record for ticket sales, selling 109,303 tickets. In 2003, they broke their own record with the improved figure of 140,740 and the record was broken again the following year with 143,033 tickets sold. Every year new records are shattered in ticket sales.
