Doxa Katokopia (Greek: Δόξα Κατωκοπιάς) is a Cypriot football team from Katokopia in the Nicosia District. Since the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974, Katokopia is under Turkish occupation, and the club moved to Peristerona, which is near Katokopia.

The solid Era squads[edit]

Doxa Katokopias known as Doxa which translates to Glory in Greek, from 2011 onwards became famous for the solid squad players, the majority of whom are Portuguese from the lower divisions, that the club president "Karavidas" locates and the team employs, to face strong opponents and therefore obtains the respect of the CFA community due to the decent results.

History[edit]

Doxa (which translates as Glory) was promoted to First Division in 1998 for first time in their history, but after finishing 13th in the table (out of 14 teams) they were relegated; the following season, after finishing third in the Second division, they were promoted again in 2000 and this time, with the experience of their first participation, they achieved great success by managing to finish 11th and to remain in the First Division. They were relegated again in 2002 to become Second Division runners-up the following year, they competed again in the first division in the 2003–04 season where they finished last with only 1 win from 26 games and were thus automatically relegated. They were again promoted to the first division in 2007 and after 4 consecutive seasons in the First Division, they have been relegated back to the Second Division in 2011. In 2012 they were promoted again to the First Division after finishing 2nd in the Second Division. In their last five consecutive participations in First Division, a record for the club, they used as home ground the Makario Stadium.
