The 11th edition of the Mediterranean Games were held in Athens, Greece from the 28th of June to the 12th of July 1991. Eighteen nations competed in 24 different sporting events.

Pre-Mediterranean Cup

At the beginning of June 1991, the Pre-Mediterranean Cup was taken out in Olympiacos FC, Panathinaikos FC and PAOK FC, as their players were tired of Superleague (A'Ethniki) games. It was something like the Greek League Cup that took place the previous year. In the Semifinals, AEK Athens FC beat Apollon Smyrnis 4–2 and OFI Crete beat Athinaikos FC 1-0. In the Final AEK Athens FC beat OFI Crete 1–0 and obtained the title.
