Kastoria FC, or AGS Kastoria ( _el. ΑΓΣ Καστοριάς - Αθλητικός και Γυμναστικός Σύλλογος Καστοριάς), the "Athletic and Gymnastic Association of Kastoria", is a Greek association football club based in the city of Kastoria, Macedonia, Greece.

History

The club was established in 1963 when three local sides (Aris, Atromitos and Orestias) merged to form one stronger team representing the town. In 1975, Kastoria played for the first time in the A' Ethniki of the Greek National League. Kastoria have played in the A' Division from 1975 - 1983 and again in 1997. The team is hoping to repeat that success this year as they are currently competing for the second division (Beta Ethniki) title. Kastoria's current coach for the 2007 - 2008 season is Ljupco Dimovski, from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Kastoria FC won the Greek Cup in 1980 by defeating Iraklis.
