History

In 1969, Panthiraikos A.O. participated in a tournament of independent sports clubs in Athens. The team competed against Keratsini, Zografou, Taxiarchis Alsoupolis, Aino Petroupolis and Kerameikos.

In May 1971, the club participated in friendly games and defeated the Ios AO 1-0, Pannaxiakos 2-1 and the team of a French navy ship named “Rin” 2-1. More than a thousand fans attended the game. The French led the game until the 10th minute. On the 25th minute Biralis skillfully scored for Panthiraikos, while on the 88th minute Gavalas scored and secured the victory for Panthiraikos. The team constellation on that day was the following:

Markou, Fylitsis, Mendrinos, Sorotos, Kafieris, Zorzos, Gavalas, Sirigos, Darzentas (Fytros), Sigalas (Biralis). Please click here for the relevant news article of “Athlitiki Ixo” newspaper.

In 1972, the club applied for a membership in the Piraeus football league in which AO Syrou and Astir Syrou were members. However, the fact that the AO Mykonos had withdrawn from the league the year before resulted in the Football League’s reluctance to expand further into the Cyclades islands. Although several attempts aiming at the creation of a Cyclades football league within the 3rd division of the Piraeus Football League have been reported, all of them failed. The reason for that was financial shortage and no funds for substantial expenses such as transfer costs of the club. For these reasons, the application of Panthiraikos A.O. was rejected as happened with all other local football teams of Cyclades which after that continued playing in occasional friendly games.

In 1980, the Football League of Cyclades was founded so the club started participating in an official championship. Since that day, the club participated in the 1st division of the Cyclades football league playing an important role in the league. The club won the championship three times and the Cyclades Cup twice. In 1985, Panthiraikos participated in the 3rd division of the National Football League. In 1988, after winning the Cyclades championship and the championship of champions, the club participated in the 4th division of the National Football League anew for six consecutive years until 1994. In 2016, Panthiraikos won the Cup and Championship of Cyclades and also managed to participate in the 3rd division of the National Football League for the first time in the club’s history.
