The Coca‑Cola Cup was instituted in 1962 and now constitutes an inextricable part of the football history of Cyprus. This special relationship between Cyprus football and the prevailing football refreshment drink is perhaps the longest-lived in the field, not only in Cyprus but also in Europe.
Coca‑Cola Cup is the country's most significant sporting institution. It begins every year in September and ends in May with the participation of all the teams and leagues. Every final is a special celebration and receiving the Cup brings great glory to the winner.
Through its historical overview, Coca‑Cola has linked its name with Cyprus football and supported it in every possible way. This is a relationship that reflects the joy, the cheers, the ecstasy, the intense emotions and tension experienced by thousands of fans who made and are still making their way through the stadiums of Cyprus every day.
This year we proudly celebrate the 55th anniversary of the Cup, always promoting the positive side of football, through messages that speak of true sportsmanship and healthy competition. An institution and a product that embrace all teams, no matter how "small" or "big", allowing all fans to dream of victory and giving them the opportunity to support their favourite teams through their proper conduct at the stadiums.
