HistoryEdit

In the 1960s and 1970s it played in high leagues against the likes of Olympiacos, Panathinaikos, AEK Athens or PAOK, and many others . After many years in the lower tiers, Aias secured promotion to the third, professional, league of the Greek pyramid in 2007. The pitch is on the road between Salamis city and Aianteio and seats 1500 visitors. The team colours are blue and white.

In the past Aias had gained many championships and cups in lower Hellenic divisions . The club had many emerging players who, after successful stints with Aias, eventually moved to larger Greek teams.

Aias Salaminas derives its name from the Salaminan king Ajax the Great.
