At the end of the 1953 football season, a team of young men placed as dream and objective the foundation of an association with national and athletic aims based on promoting the education and social skills of its young members.

On 14 April 1954 the general assembly of enough members with leader Mr Christaki Pavlides proposes the foundation of an athletic association called “Athletic Musical Group APOLLON LIMASSOL’ “. The assembly approved the proposal and thus from that 14 day of the month of April in the year 1954 “APOLLON was born”. The first administrative council of the team included: Charalambos Lymbourides (Secretary), Andreas Psyllides (Cashier), Antonakis Fourlas (Adviser), Melis Charalampous (Adviser), Andreas Theoharous (Adviser) Andreas Aggelopoulos (Adviser) and Kostas Panayiotou (Adviser).

The first football team was created under the directives of Antonakis Fourlas, playing against district teams. This had a result of it becoming continuously more expensive to run and thus the registration of new members was increased with rapid rhythms. For this reason it was decided to send a letter to the C.F.A (Cyprus Football Association) with date of 23 March 1955 for the integration of Apollon into the Association. On 16 October 1955, the Cypriot Football Association (C.F.A) included in its orders Apollon in the 2nd division.
