How to Play Professional Football in Cyprus

9 Replies



Hi I am moving to Cyprus this year, my Son who is 17 would like to play professional football for a club in Cyprus. During the summer he was over here with his father and trained with one of the clubs, but his father and I are separated and I was wondering if anyone knew of how I can get some information about joining a club in Cyprus, as I do not speak Greek and from personal experience I dont not think that such a male dominated sport would take to kindly to dealing with a women although I have had no problem in the UK. I would be very grateful if anyone could help me. Looking forward to a better life Shaz

HI Shaz,

My name is Jordan and I am moving to Paphos in a few week and have a basic knowledge of Cypriot football. I am a qualified coach, referee and manager in the UK and I am keen to continue my involvement in football once I arrive. What level has your son played at? I am in the early stages of forming a football team there and looking for good players. My brother is of a really good standard as well and has trained with a few local clubs so can help you out. Are you on the west side of the island?

Speak to you soon,

Hi there, Jordymask I have sent you an e-mail. It might be of some help for when setting up a football club/academy.

For anyone else for football for their kids, try:-

This is a football academy in Limassol for all, not just for cypriots. Give it a try.

The standard of youth football in high in Limassol, there are lots of clubs who have English boys playing for them and most of the coaches speak English, which is very helpful!

I know of MegaSports, Nikki Academy ( Run by an ex newcastle united player) Campus Sportivo and Apollon.

My 10 year old son goes to a hotel with his club a few times a year in either Ayia Napa, Larnaca or Paphos on a Friday night to have a footballers dinner and play a match on Saturday and they really enjoy themselves.

They are all good teams though, and I am sure your kids would like any of them. I think there is also an English speaking team in Paphos as my son played against a team last season from there and they were all English.
