1965–66 Greek Football Cup

The 1965–66 Greek Football Cup was the 24th edition of the Greek Football Cup. This was the second consecutive cup Final that was scratched. AEK Athens were awarded[1] the Cup as the HFF was late to determine a date for the match; since Olympiacos had to prepare for the next season's European Cup, this delay meant Olympiacos would not be able to participate in the Final.
