Team History

Enosis Neon Paralimniou ("Athletic Union of Paralimni" in English) was founded in April 1944, following the merger of two Paralimni clubs, Heracles and People’s Love. Firstly as a cultural center only.
The club’s emblem is the Parthenon, with a trumpeter and the year 1936 inscription, birth year of the club Heracles. The only reason why founders decided to adopt the year 1936 as the new club’s birth year instead of the year 1944 has purely to do with Heracles official papers.
In view of that and in order to avoid any legal implications, the newly born club of Enosis was reckoned by the authorities as a continuation of the club Heracles of Paralimni, absorbing the other club, People’s Love.
