Nea Salamis Famagusta or Nea Salamina (Greek: Νέα Σαλαμίνα Αμμοχώστου) is a Cypriot football club, which comes from Famagusta. It was founded in 1948. After the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus in 1974, when the north of Cyprus became occupied by Turkey, Nea Salamis became a refugee team and since then is based in Larnaca.

In 1990 Nea Salamina achieved its greatest success, when they won the Cyprus Cup, beating Omonia Nicosia 3-2 in the final. The same year they won the Cyprus FA Shield (Super Cup) by beating APOEL Nicosia 1-0. Nea Salamina played in the Cup final in other two occasions (1966, 2001) but were beaten both times against Apollon Limassol.

The colours of Nea Salamina are red and white and its home stadium is "Ammochostos" ( means "Famagusta") Stadium, with capacity of 8,000 seats, which is in Larnaca. Their original stadium is GSE Stadium in Famagusta but due to the turkish occupation they cannot use it for home.
