Iraklis was formed in 1899 as a music club in Thessaloniki, then still under the Ottoman yoke. Six years later the club began to organize sports events as well and in 1908 it merged with sports club Olympia to become the club as we know it today, with football being its main activity.

In 1928 Iraklis won the Thessaloniki league and established itself as one of the leading clubs in the country. In 1959-60 it was one of the founding members of A’ Ethniki. It only lost its top-flight status once in 1980, when it got relegated for bribery, but bounced back the following year.

The blue-and-whites have played five times in the cup final and won the trophy in 1976, beating Olympiakos in the penalty shoot-out. They have also featured six times in the UEFA Cup, advancing to the second round in 2000-2001.
