Since 1971, when Greek teams were allowed to acquire foreign players for the first time, Panathinaikos signed more than 200 foreigners! The Latin-American players had the lion’s share. Argentina had 23 representatives, followed by Brazil with 22 and Spain with 16. Very close is Croatia with 14 plus one more “unofficially”, as Velimir Zajec was registered as Yugoslavian – though he was of Croatian origin – because when he was transferred this country was still united.

Further on players were coming all over the world: 12 Swedish, 9 Portuguese, 9 French, 7 Polish, 7 Dutch, 6 Cypriots, 6 Romanians, 5 Germans, 5 Yugoslavs, 5 Magyars, 5 Danish, 4 Italians, 4 Ghanaians, 4 Norwegians, 4 Senegalese, 3 Cameroonians, 3 Malians, 3 Congolese, 3 Slovenians, 3 Albanians, 2 Finnish, 2 Austrians, 2 Peruvians, 2 Nigerians, 2 South-Africans, 2 Bulgarians, 2 Colombians, 2 Icelanders, 2 Uruguayans and one player coming from England, Algeria, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Paraguay, Venezuela, Angola, Mozambique, Ivory Coast, Uzbekistan, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Israel, Ecuador, Serbia, Russia.

The first player in participation, playing in 390 matches being also the first scorer ever, with 244 goals, was Christof Warzycha. Following in this list with the most frequent participations are Josef Wandzik 249, Juan Ramon Rocha 226 and as scorers Oscar Alvarez with 55 goals and Djibril Cissé with 47.
