HistoryEdit

AEK Larnaca B.C. was formed in 1994 after a merger of two Larnaca clubs: EPA Larnaca and Pezoporikos. The team has many participations in the Cyprus Basketball Division A but had also relegated to the second division. Before the merger of the two teams, Pezoporikos won the championship four times (1973, 1991, 1992, 1994). As AEK the team has won the two titles of the second division. In 2013, the team achieved its first Championship as AEK, after beating APOEL in the finals by 3–1.
