History[edit] Social rivalry[edit] The rivalry between those two Thessalonikian Macedonian clubs can be traced back in the interwar period to a rivalry between middle-class local Greeks
Greeks
(Αris) and Greek refugees, mostly working class from Asia Minor, Pontus and Constantinople
Constantinople
(PAOK) who settled in the region of Macedonia after the Population exchange between Greece
Greece
and Turkey in 1923. The antagonism between those social groups was expressed in many ways, one of them being football after the establishment of PAOK in 1926.[citation needed] Statistics[edit] Head-to-head[edit]
