Tournament detailsEdit

Totally 76 teams participated, 16 from Alpha Ethniki, 20 from Beta, and 40 from Gamma. It was held in 7 rounds, included final. An Additional Round was held between First and Second, with 6 matches, in order that the teams would continue to be 32.

It was an interesting edition, with the eternal enemies (Panathinaikos and Olympiacos) to contest the Final after 11 years. Olympiacos had eliminated "big three of Thessaloniki" (PAOK, Aris, and Iraklis), while Panathinaikos only one Alpha Ethniki team, AEK Athens, in semi-finals. In the Final, that was held in Athens Olympic Stadium, the common home of all three teams of former P.O.K. that year, Panathinaikos achieved an impressive 4–0[1] victory against their opponent, completing one successful season with the win of The Double.

There were nevertheless many unusual events. Cup holders, Larissa, were eliminated by Panserraikos in the First Round. Also, Panionios eliminated by Naousa. PAOK struggled to qualify against Anagennisi Giannitsa, with impressive score 16 - 15 in penalty shootout, when with pointless shot there were in total 36 implementations from both teams in the process. Finally, it was memorable in the fact that Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) allocated the 1/5 of crude income of the Final in favour of the aims of UNICEF.
