Club rivalries

Tylikratis's longest rivalry is with nearby Preveza FC, the two teams have clashed many times over the years and any success against their rivals is always sweet. Lefkada is part of the Ionian islands and being a smaller island than Corfu, any success against A.O. Kerkyra creates understandable anxiety among their northern neighbours.
