Double-headed eagles derby inter-city rivalry between two Greek football clubs

The Double-headed eagles derby is a football derby between AEK Athens and PAOK Thessaloniki. Both teams have the same roots, being refugees from Constantinople, after the Greco-Turkish War, the Asia Minor Catastrophe and the population exchange. Both teams use the same emblem, to reminisce the Byzantine Empire, but in different colors. The very first match between the two teams took place in Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium during the final phase of the 1930–31 Panhellenic Championship. The rivalry used to remain on-pitch for several years. However, since the Greek Cup Final of 2017 there is an ongoing, intense and overall exaggeration of the rivalry, further boosted after the championship conquered by AEK in 2018, when PAOK were deducted 3 points by court decision and AEK were given 3pts, which adjudged the title holder.
