History

The founders of Olympiacos (1925)

Olympiacos CFP was founded on March 10, 1925 in Piraeus, as a football club initially, and the club's aim, as stated in the statutes, is the systematic cultivation and development of its athletes' possibilities for participation in athletic competitions, the spreading of the Olympic athletic ideal and the promotion of sportsmanship and fanship among the youth according to egalitarian principles, by stressing a healthy, ethical and social basis as its foundation. Members of "Piraikos Podosfairikos Omilos FC" (Sport and Football Club of Piraeus) and "Piraeus Fans Club FC" decided, during a historical assembly,[53] to dissolve the two clubs in order to establish a new unified one, which would bring this new vision and dynamic to the community. Notis Kamperos, a senior officer of the Hellenic Navy, proposed the name Olympiacos and the profile of a laurel-crowned Olympic winner as the emblem of the new club. Michalis Manouskos, a prominent Piraeus industrialist, expanded the name to its complete and current status, Olympiacos Syndesmos Filathlon Pireos, a name that symbolizes and encompasses the morality, the honour, the vying, the splendor, the sportsmanship and the fair play value of the Olympic ideal of Ancient Greece, which was totally consistent with the club's emblem.[54] Besides Kamperos and Manouskos, among the most notable founding members were Stavros Maragoudakis, the Post Office director, Nikos Andronikos, a merchant, Dimitrios Sklias, a Hellenic Army officer, Nikolaos Zacharias, an attorney, Athanasios Mermigas, a notary public, Kostas Klidouchakis, who became the first goalkeeper in the club's history, Ioannis Kekkes, a stockbroker, and above all, the Andrianopoulos family. Andrianopoulos, a family of well-established Piraeus merchants, played a pivotal role in the founding of Olympiacos. The five brothers, Yiannis, Giorgos, Dinos, Vassilis and Leonidas Andrianopoulos raised the reputation of the club and brought it to its current glory.[55] Yiannis, Giorgos, Dinos and Vassilis were the first to play, while Leonidas, the youngest of the five, made his debut later on and played for the club for eight years (1927-1935). The club's offensive line, made up of the five brothers, became legendary, rising to a mythical status and soon Olympiacos gained enormous popularity and became the most successful and well-supported club in Greece. Olympiacos is also known as Thrylos (The Legend),[56] after the legendary, classic side of the 1950s which won a hatful of titles.

Olympiacos football team is the most successful club in Greek football history,[58] having won 44 League titles, 27 Cups and 4 Super Cups, all records.[59] ?otalling 75 national trophies, Olympiacos is 9th in the world in total titles won by a football club.[60] The club's dominating success can be further evidenced by the fact that all other Greek clubs have won a combined total of 38 League titles, while Olympiacos also holds the record for the most consecutive Greek League titles won, with seven in a row in two occasions (1997-2003 and 2011-2017), breaking their own previous record of six consecutive wins in the 1950s (1954-1959), when Olympiacos was unequivocally nicknamed Thrylos (Greek: , "The Legend").

Having won the 2014-15 league title, Olympiacos became the only football club in the world to have won a series of five or more consecutive championships for five times in their history, a record that was praised by FIFA with a congratulatory letter of its president, Sepp Blatter.[61] They are also the only Greek club to have won five consecutive national Cups (1957-1961), as well as six League titles undefeated (1937, 1938, 1948, 1951, 1954, 1955).[62] Olympiacos are one of only three clubs to have never been relegated from the top flight of Greek football, and by winning the 2012-13 title, their 40th in total, they added a fourth star above their crest, each one representing 10 League titles.[63]

In European competitions, Olympiacos best performances are their presence in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals in 1998-99, losing the semi-final spot in the last minutes of their second leg match against Juventus, as well as in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup quarter-finals in 1992-93. The Red-Whites are the highest ranked Greek club in the UEFA rankings, occupying the 29th place in Europe as of 2018,[64] and one of the founding members of the European Club Association.[65] Olympiacos won the Balkans Cup in 1963, at a time when the competition was considered the second most important in the region after the European Cup,[66] becoming the first ever Greek club to win an international competition.

From 2006 to 2015, Olympiacos qualified 10 times in a row for at least the quarter-finals of the EuroLeague, which was an all-time record in European basketball history at the time, shared with FC Barcelona, who made a new record in 2016.[70] They play their home matches at Peace and Friendship Stadium.

They are the first Greek club that ever played in a Euroleague Final (1994), and they won their first Euroleague title in 1997,[71] achieving the first Triple Crown ever for a Greek team. As European champions, Olympiacos played in the 1997 McDonald's Championship and reached the final of the tournament, where they met Michael Jordan's NBA champions, the Chicago Bulls.[72] Based on all those achievements, FIBA declared Olympiacos as the Best European Team of the 1990s.[73][74]

In 2012, they won their second Euroleague title in Istanbul by rallying from 19 points down in the championship game to beat CSKA Moscow 62-61 on the last shot of the game, achieving the greatest comeback in European basketball finals history, and one of the greatest ever seen in continental basketball.[75] In 2013, Olympiacos won their third Euroleague title and became the first and only Greek club, and only the third club in European basketball history, to become back-to-back European champions in the modern Final Four era of the Euroleague,[16] after beating Real Madrid 100-88 in the final of the 2012-13 Euroleague Final Four in London.[16] After winning back-to-back EuroLeague championships, Olympiacos won the Intercontinental Cup and celebrated a third international title in less than 2 years.

The Gate 7 Tragedy

The history of the Karaiskakis Stadium and Olympiacos was marked by the worst tragedy that ever hit Greek sports, known as the Karaiskakis Stadium disaster. On 8 February 1981, Olympiacos hosted AEK Athens for a League match, which ended 6-0, in an unprecedented triumph for the host team of Piraeus. During the last minutes of the game, thousands of Olympiacos fans at the Gate 7 rushed to the exit, to get to the stadium's main entrance and celebrate with the players, but the doors were almost closed and the turnstiles still in place, making the exit almost impossible.[125] As people continued to come down from the stands, unable to see what happened, the stairs of Gate 7 became a death trap; people were crushed, tens of fans were seriously injured and twenty-one young people died, most of them by suffocation.[126]

In memory of this event, every year on February 8, there is a memorial service at the stadium in honor of the supporters that died in that incident. The service is attended by thousands of fans every year, who are rhythmically shouting the phrase "?, , ." (Adhélfia, zíte, esís mas odhiyíte, "Brothers, you live, you are the ones who guide us."). At the tribune part of the stadium where Gate 7 is now, some seats are colored black instead of red, shaping the number "7", whereas there is also a monument on the eastern side of the stadium, bearing the names of all 21 supporters killed on that day in the stadium.[127]

Even though this incident affected almost solely the fanbase of Olympiacos, other teams occasionally pay their respects to the people killed as well, as they consider the incident to be a tragedy not only for one team, but for the whole country. In the past, even foreign teams, such as Liverpool F.C. and Red Star Belgrade have honored the incident's victims.[128]
