History
• Named in honour of the Greek god of war, Aris were founded on 25 March 1914 in Salonika and made a swift impact in Greek football, winning the first national title in 1928 under the guidance of Austrian coach Thomas Kessler; the star player in that team was Kleanthis Vikelidis, after whom the club's stadium is now named.

• Having won their second title under Belgian coach De Valer in 1932, Aris took the first post-World War II Greek crown in 1946 but have not managed another since, with all of their honours pre-dating the foundation of the Greek top division in 1959.

• The club's home ground was formally opened in 1951 in Salonika's Harilaou district, but while Aris boast great support in the north of Greece their last silverware came in 1970, when a Manolis Keramidas goal saw earned a 1-0 victory against local rivals PAOK FC in the Greek Cup final.

• Inspired by Dinos Kouis and Giorgos Firos, the Aris side of the late 1970s played some great football, but lost the 1979/80 title with a 2-0 play-off defeat against Olympiacos FC after the teams had finished level on points.

• In subsequent decades financial problems blunted Aris's competitive edge, but they regrouped in 2006 with the development of the Aris Friends Club under which supporters financially assist the club while having a say in the election of presidents.
