Our Pathway

03

Olympia has a pathway for both male and female players, from our Mini Warriors right the way through to our senior NPL & WSL levels. With this including our Junior and Youth Academies, as well as an All Girls Program. And then for our more social senior players that just love to have a good kick around and score some goals on the weekend, there is the option for this as well.

Overview

01

Spanning six decades Olympia FC have been leaders in Tasmanian Football.


Olympia FC fields teams in Senior, youth and junior divisions, in both men’s and women's competitions. The club play their home games at Warrior Park on the eastern shore of Hobart. This has been the clubs home since the start of the 2011 season.


Olympia was formed in 1960 as a place for the then Greek immigrants to congregate and have a common interest for their community being football.  For the first part of our history Olympia FC had been predominantly represented by players of ethnic Greek background. ​This changed and evolved quickly as Olympia FC became a multi-cultural club welcoming player’s members and supporters from all parts of the world.
Of this we are very proud.

1970s

The club

02

"Olympia" was the clubs name until in 1997 a directive from the then Soccer Australia insisted that an ethnic cleansing of
Australian football be had.


​In short ethnic name affiliations were systematically removed from Australian football.
Olympia FC being unwilling to completely depart from their Greek heritage simply changed 'Olympia' to 'Olympic'. Although not completely satisfied the Board of Soccer Tasmania deemed that the change complied with Soccer Australia’s directive. This change of name saw the club suffer both on and off the field and lose some of its traditional support. A lot of work had to be done to ensure its continued existence and longevity.
In October 2009 after a revamped board the newly elected President George Mamacas started making immediate changes to the ailing club. Olympic FC reverted to their former ethnically-affiliated name 'Olympia', and added the epithet 'Warriors'. A new logo featuring a Spartan warrior's helmet also replaced the 50 year old shield with a map of the island State of Tasmania to further celebrate the Greek Australian heritage.
This decision was made ahead of the club's fiftieth anniversary celebrations, and taken with the full blessing of Football Federation Tasmania.

Oddly enough this change of name decided that for all time Mamacas is the only person who has held the office of President at both Olympic and Olympia as he was President of the club in 1997 when the name changed.

In our 59th year the Board decided to go back to the original Olympia logo look. Losing the helmet from the centre of it meant that the more traditional logo was in place. By maintaining the map of Tasmania in the centre of the logo it says to all that the club is very proud of its Australian heritage as well as its forefathers being of Greek Ancestry.

Olympia FC have been one of the more successful Tasmanian Football clubs. A list of honours can be found on this website.
Throughout the journey now spanning 60 years Olympia FC have been at the forefront of taking the game to new levels.
