Queensland-based club are currently leading the Australian National Premier League
Olympic FC are hoping to re-write their history books this season by winning their first League title since 1979.
The Queensland-based club, the first to take on the Olympic name, are eight points clear at the top of the Australian National Premier League after joining the competition for its inaugural campaign, which began in March.
With three games remaining and the Finals Series closing in on the horizon the club’s President Peter Ioannisdis insists the main focus is on capturing the Championship.
“Our main goal now is to win the league and have the opportunity to play in the NPL Champions League,” he told Football Australia.
“The side have been working for seven months to get into the position to win the league and now we are in with a good shot of doing that.”
Olympic competed in the Brisbane Premier League last season but submitted to join the NPL and Ioannisdis believes the decision was the right one as it has significantly aided the club’s growth.
“The NPL has been great for us as a club and is definitely a much better structured league,” he added.
“The league is now much more sustainable especially with travel being capped which is absolutely necessary in a state like Queensland that is so spread out.
“It has also helped grow our club to over 800 players (up from 650) by tying junior representatives to the club. We are very happy to be a part of the competition.”
