Mimis Domazos (born 22 January 1942) is a Greek footballer (central attacking midfielder) born in Abelokipi, Athens. His nickname is "The General".

Mimis Domazos is considered by many to be the best footballer that Greece has ever produced. He was famed for his fantastic dribbling and his creative passes. He played for almost 21 years

He was born on the 22 January 1942 in Abelokipi, just a few meters away from the Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium and he began his playing career at the age of thirteen with a local team called Amina Abelokipon (this team's field was opposite the Apostolos Nikolaidis stadium)

Panathinaikos discovered his talent and offered him a professional contract. Domazos did not pass up the chance to play for his favourite team and in 1959 (when the first Greek 1st National Championship took place) Panathinaikos acquired him at the age of 17. He went on to become a living legend for Greek football and Panathinaikos

After 20 years in Panathinaikos, in 1979 due to an argument with his coach, he left Panathinaikos to play for AEK for one year and returned to Panathinaikos in 1980 when the new president and oil businessman Yiorgos Vardinogiannis asked him to end his great career in the team which loved him so much.

During his 21 year career, Mimis Domazos won many trophies. He won:

10 Greek Championship Titles

  • 9 with Panathinaikos (1960, 61, 62, 64, 65, 69, 70, 72, 77)
  • 1 with AEK Athens FC (1979)

3 times Cup Winner

  • Panathinaikos (1967, 69 , 77)

One time European Champions Club Cup Finalist as Panathinaikos captain

  • AFC Ajax - Panathinaikos 2-0, Wembley, London


His first match with the national team was in 2 December 1959 against Denmark in Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium (Greece lost 1-3) and his last was in 11 November 1980 against Australia in the same field (3-3)

He was National team's captain during these years and in total earned 50 caps scoring 4 goals.


Mimis Domazos in total participated in 536 official matches (502 with Panathinaikos and 34 with AEK Athens) which is still a record number
