Olympiacos Club of Fans of Piraeus, (OCFP), (Greek: Ολυμπιακός Σύνδεσμος Φιλάθλων Πειραιώς), transliterated Olympiacos Sindesmos Filathlon Pireos (OSFP), is a large and the most popular multisport club based in Piraeus, the major port of Athens.

The club is parent to a number of different competitive departments including Football (Olympiacos F.C.), Basketball (Olympiacos B.C.), Volleyball (Olympiacos S.C.), Water Polo (Olympiacos Water Polo Club), Athletics and Swimming, amongst others, which have won numerous domestic and European titles over the club's history*. Olympiacos CFP is the only Greek sports club to have managed to win five European titles, major European titles in three different team sports and The treble in two team sports. They have won the Euroleague in Basketball, two CEV Cup Winners' Cup in Volleyball, the LEN Euroleague and the European Super Cup in Water Polo. In addition to this, in the total number of Olympiacos' athletes, Olympic winners and World Champions are included.

Olympiacos CFP was founded on March 10, 1925, as a football club initially, when the members of the "Piraeus Football Club" and the "Piraeus Fan Club" decided, during a historical assembly, to dissolve the two clubs in order to establish a new unified one football club, with the young Olympic games winner boy as their emblem. Notis Kamberos announced the name Olympiacos and Michalis Manouskos completed it to its full name, Olympiacos Club of Fans of Piraeus. The Andrianopoulos brothers, however, were those who significantly raised the reputation of the club and added glory to it. Children of a prosperous family, they made the name of Olympiacos known over Greece. Yiannis, Dinos, Giorgos, and Vassilis were the first to play. Leonidas made his appearance later on, and played for a short time. The club's offensive line, made up of the five brothers, soon became legendary and, hence, Olympiacos is also known as Thrylos (Legend), after this classic side of the 1930s which won a hatful of titles.
