History
• With a name inspired by the noted aviator Notis Kamperos, Olympiacos were formed by the five-man Andrianopoulos brothers in the small port of Piraeus in Athens on 10 March 1925, and those same siblings went on to form the potent forward line which dominated the fledgling Greek championship in the 1930s.

• The club secured six league titles before the Second World War and enjoyed even better times afterwards, taking seven championship crowns and seven Greek Cups in the 1950s, including three consecutive domestic doubles between 1957 and 1959.

• A comparatively lean period in the 1960s was reversed by ambitious club president Nikos Goulandris, who brought in star names to knock Panathinaikos FC off their perch in 1973, with the first of three straight titles. The second of those crowns was attained thanks to a stunning 102 goals in 34 league outings.

• The success continued into the 1980s until the club faced financial problems. However, the situation was resolved when Socrates Kokkalis, owner of the Olympiacos basketball section, took over in 1992.

• The appointment of Dušan Bajevic as coach in 1996 then helped return Olympiacos to the forefront on the pitch, with a ten-year championship drought ended in 1996/97. That proved to be the first of seven consecutive league titles, eclipsing the club's Greek record of six successes between 1954 and 1959. Olympiacos' dominance on the domestic scene has continued throughout the decade, securing 13 championships between 1997 and 2011.
