History

For more details on this topic, see History of Anorthosis Famagusta FC.

The club was founded in Famagusta on January 30, 1911. After the 1974 Cypriot coup d'état and subsequent Turkish invasion of Cyprus, Anorthosis was relocated to Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium of Larnaca. Anorthosis' former home stadium in Famagusta, G.S.E. (Gymnastic Club Evagoras), has been abandoned since 1974 and is in poor condition.

Ammochostos, or better Varoshi, around 1910 was a small town of about 4,000 inhabitants: farmers, fishermen and a few shop-keepers. The only place of recreation was the coffee shop. At this time a few, spirited and enthusiastic men of that small community of Ammochostos set a goal and managed to create a "reading club" in hospitable rooms where they could gather and educate the youth in cultural and national matters.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The history of every country begins in the heart of a man or a woman.
    Willa Cather (1876–1947)

    The visual is sorely undervalued in modern scholarship. Art history has attained only a fraction of the conceptual sophistication of literary criticism.... Drunk with self-love, criticism has hugely overestimated the centrality of language to western culture. It has failed to see the electrifying sign language of images.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    If man is reduced to being nothing but a character in history, he has no other choice but to subside into the sound and fury of a completely irrational history or to endow history with the form of human reason.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)
