AEK was established in 1924 by refugees from Constantinople who came into Greece after the elimination of their nation in the West coast of Turkey in 1922.
That coast had been dominated by the Greek element for thousands of years. The Greeks of Constantinople, Smyrni and every other spot of the coast who had achieved great things for centuries were forced to move towards mother Greece.
The Greek refugees settled throughout the country and helped with its development in every sector.
Kostas Spanoudis, reporter and later minister in Venizelos’ government was AEK F.C. first president, professor Nikos Eleopoulos, was the Vice-President while Timoleon Tagaris, Menelaos Karotsieris, Miltos Jeremiadis, Ionas (later president) and Dimopoulos were the members of the first managing council.
