OFI Crete, or more commonly OFI (Greek: - Omilos Filathlon Irakleiou), the Fans' Club of Heraklion, is a Greek association football club based in the city of Heraklion, on the island of Crete. The team currently competes in the Super League Greece.
OFI is one of just 5 teams that has played continuously in the Greek First Division since 1976, and the only team outside Greeces two major cities, Athens and Thessaloniki. The most successful period of the modern era was between 1985-2000, when under the guidance of the Dutch manager Eugene 'Egen' Gerard, OFI won its first trophy (Cup winners in 1987), came close to winning the championship a couple of times, (runners-up in 1986) and qualified for UEFA competitions several times. OFI always symbolised the love of most Cretans for their island as a whole, not just a local city, and that is the reason for its official name OFI Crete, not just plain OFI.
