Athletic Association “Foinikas”

The Athletic Association “Foinikas” was established in 1973. The goal of the association’s establishment was to occupy the youth of the community and the wider area with sports and especially with football so that they would keep away from any addictions.

The administrative committee is compiled by:

President: Elias Myrianthous (tel: 99655209)

Vice President: Michael (Lakis) Michael (tel.:99632877)

Secretary: Phideias Evaggelou (tel.:99456866)

Cashier: Andreas Nicolaou Pakkos (tel.:99683807)

General Chief: Kleopas Theophanous (tel.: 99613093)

Member: Andreas Papettas

Member: Michalis Rodosthenous

Member: Michalis Sophocleous(tel.:99632201)

It is worth mentioning that the team plays in the agricultural championship of the Pafos District, where it plays a leading part with significant achievements, either by winning championships or cups. In the last few years, the team is showing an impressive revival and it aims at climbing to the fourth division within the next few years.

Association “Foinikas” organizes several cultural and social events, which aim to inform and sensitise people about various problems. In particular, every year, on the 14th of August, a Festival, in which many popular artists from Greece and Cyprus take part, is organized at the Community Park. The Festival is a great success every year. Beyond that, on every Friday from September until May, bingo game is organized. Moreover, a beach cleaning campaign is organized every year. Finally, at Christmas, the Association organizes a Christmas dancing party.

Our Association cooperates with athletic associations of the area and they frequently co-organize sports galas, both at the first team’s level, as well as at the academies’ level.

Since last year, the Association has a modern privately owned stadium with a greensward. This stadium constitutes the pride of the surrounding area and the community of Agia Marina Chrysochous because it is, up until today, the area’s only stadium with a greensward and night lighting.

This stadium was built with donations made by the residents of the community, the friends of the association, as well as with the contribution of the Cyprus Sports Organization. Also, a mini Futsal football pitch has been created, with funds from CFA and UEFA, next to the stadium.
