HistoryEdit

The parent athletic club of Koroivos was founded in 1982, and the club's basketball section was founded in 1983. In 2010, Koroivos merged with Xanthi and gained Xanthi's club rights, and also took their place in the Greek 2nd Division during the 2010–11 season. Koroivos also took AEK Athens' place in the Greek 2nd Division during the 2012–13 season.

Koroivos finished in 2nd place in the Greek 2nd Division in the 2013–14 season, after Sakis Karidas hit a 3 pointer at the end of the game against Kavala, to give Koroivos a 58 to 57 win in the next to last game of the season. The club thus gained promotion to play in the top Greek League for the first time in the 2014–15 season.

ArenasEdit

Koroivos plays their home games at the 2,000 seat[1] Amaliada Ilida Indoor Hall.
