ΑRIS, the team with the yellow jersey and the God of war on the chest.
ARIS, the group that brought the modern basketball in Greece and riveted all Greek fans in front of their TV screens.
ARIS, the “Emperor” of Greek basketball and the best Greek team of the 20th century in all sports, as voted.
Always destined to star, ARIS began to conquer titles just a few years after the founding of the basketball section. The 21 titles (10 Greek Championships, 8 Greek Cups and 3 European trophies) prove in the most eloquent way the greatness of the “Yellows”, while the two stars above the emblem of the club brings awe.
Several of the personalities in Greek basketball wore ARIS’ jersey Great athletes such as Nick Galis, Panagiotis Giannakis, Phaedon Matheou, Harris Papageorgiou, and great coaches like Giannis Ioannidis and Anestis Petalidis, helped the sports history of our country to be written, while making proud not only ARIS’ fans, but all Greeks.
In this section are presented some of the greatest moments of the glorious club of Thessaloniki. Special thanks to Kostas Idos, author of the project “The History of ARIS”, for his valuable help and for the material he offered.
