Get to know: Hellenic Athletic Club

We'll be travelling to Darwin for the FFA Cup Round of 32 to take on Darwin's oldest football club, Hellenic Athletic Club. 

The club was formed back in 1958 by a group of Greek immigrants who loved football and wanted to use the club as a way of keeping in contact with other immigrants from the region. 

Originally, the club was established as an athletic club competing in other sports such as basketball, water polo and volleyball.

Hellenic currently play in the NorZone Premier League, which is one of three top-tier state-level competitions in the Northern Territory. 

The NorZone region comprises of central Darwin and the surrounding rural areas.

Over the years, Hellenic have been crowned the Women's Premier League Premiers, Men's Premier League Premiers and Champions, and the U21 Men's Premier League Premiers and Champions.
