The Yellow middle section symbolizes admiration and envy, while the navy symbolizes nobility. 'oak acorn' leaves which rise from the navy and yellow section show the power of FenerbahAe. The green colour of leaves shows the success of FenerbahAe which is imperativea. Three stars are added to the emblem of Club on the team's jersey, with each star corresponding to five Championship titles won. Fener have 19, so sooner or later fourth star will be add.


FenerbahAe SK

FenerbahAe Spor KulAbA were found in 1907 but had to stay off the radar for about a year, since back then it was seriously frown upon by Ottoman authorities to be involved in sport that was considered aimporta of British who live in Istanbul. FenerbahAe is the name of the neighbourhood on the Asian side of the Turkish megalopolis, which the Club have called home since the first day of their existence. AFenera comes from ancient Greek afanAria, abahAea is Turkish for agardena, and the name of the neighborhood actually means aThe garden of lighthousea, since it was exactly the lighthouse that used to stick out in that coastal part of Asian Istanbul. SarA Kanaryalar, aThe Yellow Canariesa, as team are affectionately call, were first winners of the Turkish national League in 1959. Ever since then, they have lifted Turkey's trophy 18 more times, winning six Turkish Cup titles as well along the way. FenerbahAe have been very consistent in winning titles since the beginning of the professional era in Turkey, winning three or more, usually four Championships each decade, with the exception of the nineties, when they finished top only at the end of the 1995-96 season. It goes without saying that alongside city rivals Galatasaray and BeAiktaA they are three clubs that have never been relegate from the top Turkish flight. Their biggest rivalry is against Galatasaray, being yang to their aEuropeana counterpart's yin, kind of completing each other, and always giving one another extra motive to keep improving, keep pushing for more successes, more titles, more fame and higher prestige. At international level, FenerbahAe won the UEFA competition final in 2013. They reached the semi-finals of the Europa League, but despite beating Benfica 1-0 at home, they saw their Portuguese rivals make it through with a 3-1 win in Lisbon. Five years earlier, they had reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, in their best season in Europe's biggest club competition. It was Chelsea who shattered their dream that time. Their 2-1 home win proven just not enough, losing 2-0 in London. MAjdat Yetkiner spent his entire career at FenerbahAe, and wore their jersey more times than any other player in the club's history, from 1980 to 1995. Zeki RAza Sporel, legendary figure of Fener's early ages, from 1915 to 1934, has scored more goals wearing his jersey than anyone else. Aykut Kocaman is the club's top goalscorer in the professional era, having played for them from 1988 to 1996. All three are real legends at FenerbahAe, but even so, none of them come even close to getting compared with the ultimate Fener legend, Lefter KAAAkandonyadis.

Sports- Football/Soccer

LONDON in South Korea, authorities speak of subjecting top players to lie detectors to prevent match fixing. In Istanbul, soccer bosses themselves are being thrown into jail. And in Zurich, FIFA is throwing money at Interpol, hoping that the international police organization can arrest the perception that sport is endemically corrupt.

However, having itself investigated is not the reason FIFA recently signed a $20 million contract with Interpol.

If Interpols anti-corruption center, based in Singapore, has it right, greatest threat to soccer come from China and the East and spreads to the highest leagues of Europe. And that is where Turkish soccer fits in. Turkey straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosporus. As country of 78. 8 million people, with gifts and a fanatical soccer base, it has the capacity to be the top nation in sport. Its youth system was, until recently, equal of Spain. Its leading clubs, Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, Besiktas and Rising Black Sea port city Team Trabzonspor are clubs that field teams in multiple sports, built on the lines of Barcelona or Real Madrid. The presidents of Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor, who finished first and second in the Turkish Super League this May, are in jail. So is the former head of the Turkish football federation. They are among more than 60 men rounded up in police raids during the past week. The bulk of them have plead not guilty to any wrongdoing. They say there is a conspiracy against them. Among those detained on suspicion of match fixing is Aziz Yildirim, chairman of Fenerbahce. Yildirim was jailed Sunday despite pleading that he had a heart condition and would not withstand imprisonment. He maintained the right to stay silent under police questioning but reportedly told close associates, If I speak, everyone will get burn. Everyone is slight exaggeration. Inquiry could now take months of judicial process to unravel. Soccer does not have months, or even weeks, to move on. The Turkeys new season is due to start Aug. 5. Sooner than that, by this Friday, Turkish teams in the Champions League for next season must be verify. As it stands now, Fenerbahce is entered the Champions League, and Trabzonspor, as Turkish runner-up, is due to play in the third-round qualifying stage. The Turkish federation said Monday that it would wait until prosecutors file any indictments before taking any action against any of its teams. We are not accepting extrajudicial execution, said Ilhan Cavcav, president of another leading club, Genclerbirligi. While the probe goes on, teams and players they employ from many other countries as well as Turkey have little choice but to contemplate playing on.
