History

Fenerbahce was founded as a Football Club in 1907 in Istanbul, Ottoman Empire, by Ziya Songulen, Ayetullah Bey and Necip Okaner. This group of individuals founded the Club secretly in order to keep a low profile and not get into any trouble with strict Ottoman rule. So strict that the Sultan, Abdul Hamid II, forbid Turkish youth to set up clubs or engage in games of football played by English families that were watched in envy. The club's name comes from Fenerbahce, neighbourhood in Istanbul. The name literally means lighthouse garden in Turkish, referring to the historic lighthouse located at Fenerbahce Cape. Ziya Songulen was elected First President of the Club, Ayetullah Bey became First General Secretary, and Enver Necip Okaner was given the post of General Captain. The Lighthouse situated on Fenerbahce Cape was a big influence on the design of the Club's first crest, which sports yellow and white colors of daffodils around the lighthouse. Kits were also designed with yellow and white stripes. The crest and colors of Club were changed in 1910 when Hikmet Topuzer redesigned the badge and Ziya Songulen changed colors to Yellow and Navy, from then on, the iconic colors of Club. Fenerbahce's activities were kept in secrecy until legislation reform in 1908, when, under new law, all football clubs had to register to exist legally. Fenerbahce joined the Istanbul League in 1909, finishing fifth in their first year. The founding line-up includes Ziya Songulen, Ayetullah Bey, Necip Okaner, Galip Kulakszoglu, Hassan Sami Kocamemi, Asaf Bespnar, Enver Yetiker, Sevkati Hulusi Bey, Fuat Husnu Kayacan, Hamit Husnu Kayacan, and Nasuhi Baydar. Fenerbahce play against staff of the Royal Navy that occupied Istanbul during the Turkish War of Independence. Some British soldiers form football teams that are named after players' speciality, for example Essex Engineers, Irish Guards, Grenadiers, and Artillery. These teams play against each other and against local football teams in Istanbul. Fenerbahce won many of these matches. The Turkish Football Federation found a professional nationwide League in 1959, which continues today under the name of Super Lig. Fenerbahce won the first tournament, beating Galatasaray 4-1 on aggregate. Next year, Fenerbahce will participate in the UEFA European Cup for the first time. They qualify through 4-3 win over Csepel SC. They lost their first-round game to OGC Nice 1-5 in the playoff game after drawing on aggregate. They were also runners-up three times. In the 1966-67 Balkans Cup, Fenerbahce won the Cup after three matches against Greek Club AEK Athens, making them the first Turkish club to win a non-domestic competition. This success would remain unparalleled by the Turkish Club until Saryer and Samsunspor won the Cup many years later in the 1990s, when the competition lost much of its original popularity.
