Four teams from Thrace's biggest city formed Xanthi FC in 1967 and the club went straight to the second division that year due to the restructuring of divisions.
The club needed 22 years to win the B' Ethniki title in 1989 and get promoted to the top flight. It has never looked back since. It has a continued presence for 20 years in A' Ethniki (now Super League), strengthened in 1991 by its acquisition by Skoda carmaker, that gave its name to the club as well.
Its best season was 2004-2005, when it finished fourth in the league and reached the semifinals of the cup. It has also played three times in the UEFA Cup.
