About Us


New York Salamina was founded in August 1999 through the hard effords and dedication of Andrew Parperides. Our goals were and still are:

  1. To be one of the top Amateur Soccer Teams in The Hellenic American League and in the New York Area.
  2. To successfully assist Student Soccer Players from Cyprus and Greece with Scholarships and Grants from American Universities and colleges.
  3. To establish a tradition of excellence, discipline and respect for Hellenism.

Our glorious roots cultivated from the town of Famagusta, Cyprus. It is a homeland rich in Greek education, dance, music and sports. Famagusta is a beautiful city in Southeast Cyprus. The city has been occupied by Turkish troops since the 1974 invasion. Half of the city is now a ghost town completely deserted and unflourished. Famagusta has been utilized as a negotiating point between Cyprus and Turkey, regarding their efforts and talks to come up with a resolution to this on-going Cyprus tragedy, abuse and demoralization.

We are a highly motivated organization with many achievable goals. During the 2000- 2001 Season the club has achieved to win four first place trophies in many competitions. Our first title was the September League Cup Tournament of the Hellenic League. Our next triumph was the prestigious Hellenic Indoor Soccer League Cup in which 24 teams have competed. Next trophy was the Memorial Day Cup Tournament in which we were the only team from the Greek League that was invited and in sweeping fashion we won all of our games including the Title. Last trophy was the Calcetto 2001 tournament. Not only these, but we also achieved 2nd place in 2000-2001 Hellenic League.

To be able to play a major role in the Greek- American Community we need to accumulate grants and funds for maintaining our expenses which are quite a lot: league membership dues, home field expenses, practice fields permits, trainer salary, equipment costs, registration fees and injury insurance for all the players.

A big thank you to our sponsors that help our team accomplish its goals. Donations, sponsorship and help of any kind are welcomed. It would be a big help for the club. On information on how to donate or sponsor the team contact us here
