1926–27 Istanbul Football League

ChampionsGalatasaray SK (9th title)

Football in Turkey has a detailed and interesting story which begins in the cities of Thessaloniki and Smyrna during the last years of the 19th century when some Englishmen living in the country started to play this sport. At the beginning, it was forbid by Turks, and so only Greek and Armenian citizens could show interest in it. However, as time pass, Turks ' love of football outweighs their love for the sultan. When this was the case, sport began to develop, and become organizational in the capital city of Istanbul. The first Football League-Constantinople Football League-was played in 1904. Since then, oceans of football clubs have been established within the City, and while some win favor of Istanbulities easily, others find almost no lover in such a City of millions. In this article well mention Istanbuls football clubs. To keep the list at manageable length, weve only included Istanbuls historical clubs, important local clubs, and clubs that currently play in Super League. Overall, 16 teams-Enjoy! Besiktas JK actually began in March 1903, but it was year 1911 when district two clubs Validecesme and Basiret-join Besiktas JK to achieve greater success in the field of Football, and Football became the foremost branch in the Club within the same year. They wear red and white colors when Club found, but they decide to change them to black and white to commemorate losses in the Balkan Wars 1912-13. The Black-Eagles became Istanbuls League champions in 1924 for the first time, but they couldnt get another success until the 40s. Since the Professional Turkish League started in 1959, they have won 13 Turkish titles, latest in 2009, and won 8 Turkish Cups, latest in 2011. Despite that, club has gained no international success in the field. They play their home Games at Inonu Stadium, which has the best location in the City as it stands by Bosphorus, near Dolmabahce Palace. We say Galatasaray was aristocratic, and Fenerbahce was Turkish nationalist bourgeois. Besiktas is different than its rivals. Its fan base is originally working class and left, so the team gained a reputation as a peoples team. Now they are showing more Kemalist and anarchist tendencies in their fan base. Cars are against. It is a cult slogan of Besiktas fans who are against everything, even themselves. Fenerbahce SK was born in 1907 with young Turkish football players of Kadikoy district. During the early years, they won many exciting victories over football teams that were formed by foreign occupying powers in Istanbul. Because of this, they gained a reputation as a Turkish peoples team. Now, nothing has change. Fenerbahce SK and Turkish nationalist bourgeoisie still have strong amity. Another thing which hasnt changed is where they play their home games. These Games have been / are played at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium in Kadkoy since 1908. The Yellow-canaries have won 19 Super League titles, 6 Turkish Cups, and 9 Turkish Super Cups so far.
