Olympic FC is based in the Brisbane riverside suburb of Yeronga (Queensland, Australia), 7km south of the CBD. The club was founded by Greek immigrants in 1967 as Pan Rhodian Soccer Club. It joined the Queensland Soccer Federation in 1968 and changed its name to Olympic Soccer Club. The club changed its name to Olympic FC in 2008 upon joining the Queensland State League. Olympic FC now plays its football in the National Premier Leagues competition, which replaced the QSL in 2013.
Olympic was crowned the inaugural NPL Queensland Premiers on August 4, 2013, defeating Moreton Bay United 3-1 to secure an insurmountable lead with two rounds remaining. Following a 2-0 Semi Final win over Brisbane Strikers, the club added to its 2013 silverware by defeating Brisbane City 3-3 (3-0) on penalties in the Grand Final at Goodwin Park on September 8, 2013.
The club’s early football was played at Pineapple Park, Kangaroo Point, before moving to Dutton Park and then to its current home at Goodwin Park, Yeronga. Goodwin Park is the venue for Olympic’s first ever FFA Cup match, when they host Melbourne Knights on July 29th.
Olympic FC qualified for the 2014 FFA Cup by reaching the Final of Brisbane’s Canale Cup, which also doubled as Brisbane’s pathway in the Football Queensland Cup.
In reaching the FFA Cup Round of 32, Olympic defeated Centenary Stormers (Capital League 3) 6-0, Wolves FC (Brisbane Premier League) 4-1, and Peninsula Power (Brisbane Premier League) 2-1.
