Home matches had previously been staged at different stadiums all around the country. Until 1974 Cyprus used either the old GSP Stadium in central Nicosia, or the GSE stadium in Famagusta. After the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, some matches were played at Tsirion Stadium in Limassol and the Makario Stadium in Nicosia.

However, Cyprus returned to the GSP Stadium for the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying round (UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying Group H) matches.
