The top scorer was Ioannis Fountoulis with five goals in the final. He was also named Greek Cup MVP for the third time in his career, which was extra special given that the final was played on his home island of Chios.

Alexandros Gounas and Konstantinos Mourikis each scored three goals as well. Olympiacos goalkeeper Josip Pavic was named best goalkeeper of the tournament.
