Three words…Athletic Union Constantinople.
A handful of Greek refugees from Constantinople
create the historical Greek team in 1924.
Far from central political powers and forever loyal to it’s sense of fair play, AEK succeeded in becoming the first Greek team to reach the top in Europe, in 1968, by winning the Super Cup in basketball at the Kalimarmaro stadium, Athens, in front of a crowd of 80,000 spectators. It is the only team to have reached the final 8 in all European football cup games.
But with which official title can the team’s visit
to the Serbian war-zone,in 1999, be compared?
Partizan Belgrade – AEK….
Friendly match…A message of Peace and Hope,in the middle of war.
AEK is much more than just a team, a union…
It’s a Way of Life!
