The 1927-1928 Football Championship is considered the first in Greek history as it was the first Panhellenic championship organised under the auspices of the Hellenic Football Federation. It was won by Aris Thessaloniki.


The first Greek championship was contested by the winners of the local championships of Athens (Atromitos), Piraeus (Ethnikos and Thessaloniki (Aris).

Olympiakos, Panathinaikos and AEK did not participate as they had been expelled by the Hellenic Football Federation after a meeting on October 31, 1927. The original dispute came about after Olympiakos refused to abide by the federation's ruling that proceeds from the championship would be equally distributed among the participant clubs.
