 Ali Sami Yen-

Champions league matches draw over 70,000 spectators.
Galatasaray played its first years in different fields, since there were not any stadiums in Istanbul. In 1921, the first stadium, Taksim Stadium opened. Galatasaray played there until 1940. When historic Taksim Stadium was demolished, Galatasaray decided to build a large, modern stadium. Due to difficulties stemming from World War II, construction was delayed for over two decades. In this period, they played in İnönü Stadium.

On 20 December 1964, Ali Sami Yen Stadium opened. It is named after the founder of the club, Ali Sami Yen. It is in Mecidiyeköy quarter of the Şişli district at the center of the city. In 1964, the stadium had capacity over 35,000. Today, due to improvements in security and prohibition of non-seater spectators, it has an all-seater capacity of 24,990.

After 2002, when Atatürk Olympic Stadium was built for Istanbul's Olympic Games bid, Galatasaray started to play European Cup matches there. The attendance record among Turkish stadiums was broken there, in Galatasaray–Olympiacos match played in front of 79,414 spectators. Yet, Ali Sami Yen Stadium has historic importance for Galatasaray fans although it is smaller and older.

Fenerbahçe Spor Kulübü (Turkish pronunciation: [feneɾbahtʃe]; English: Fenerbahçe Sports Club) is a professional sports club based in the district of Kadıköy, Istanbul, Turkey. The sports club derives its name from the Fenerbahçe neighbourhood of Kadıköy. Fenerbahçe is one of the biggest and the best supported clubs in Turkey, holding the joint record for the Turkish League title, and highest number of Turkish Super Cups. Fenerbahçe's football team currently plays in Süper Lig. They are nicknamed The Yellow CanariesTurkish: Sarı Kanaryalar) and play their home games at Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium in Kadıköy. 

Fenevbahçe is a multi-sports club and competes in football, basketball, volleyball, athletics, swimming, sailing, rowing, boxing and table tennis with honours won in each branch. The club is also one of the major contributors of Turkish representatives for the Olympic games. Fenerbahçe is the most successful Turkish football club, having won 87 official titles.

Club crest and colours-

Centennial year kit.
First badge.
Since the club's foundation, Fenerbahçe has used the same badge, which has only undergone minor alterations.

It was designed by Topuz Hikmet (Hepimiz Topuz) who played left wing in 1910 and was made by Tevfik Haccar (Taşcı) in London. The emblem consists of five colours. The white section which includes the writing Fenerbahçe Spor Kulübü 1907 represents purity and open heartedness, the red section represents love and attachment to the club and symbolises the Turkish flag. The yellow middle section symbolises admiration and envy, while the navy symbolises nobility. The oak acorn leaf which rises from the navy and yellow section shows the power of Fenerbahçe. The green colour of the leaf shows the success of Fenerbahçe is imperative. Hikmet Topuzer describes the story of the emblem:
After the change of the club’s colours from yellow and white to yellow and navy, it was an issue to create an emblem with our new colours. My friends left the design of this emblem to me. Firstly, I brought together the colours of our national flag, red and white. Then drew a heart shape over the red and gave it a yellow and navy colour, adding an acorn leaf that represents resistance, power and strength. I wrote the club name and foundation date on the white section. When drawing our emblem, I tried to give this meaning: Serving the club with dependence from heart. The design was favored by my friends and our new emblem was made through the guidance of Tevfik Haccar, who was in Germany at time. After the new alphabet was approved, the design was protected, but the club name on the emblem was changed to Fenerbahçe Spor Kulübü ★ 1907 ★.


Fenerbahçe play their home games at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium, in the Kadıköy district of Istanbul, since 1908. Most recently renovated between 1999 and 2006, its capacity is 53,586. Unsually for a Turkish football stadium there is no running track around the outside of the pitch.

 Historical players-

When it was first founded in 1907, Fenerbahçe had a large squad. One of these players, Galip Kulaksızoğlu, was the longest serving player of the original squad. He spent seventeen years at the club, retiring in 1924 after 216 matches. Zeki Rıza Sporel was the first product of the Fenerbahçe youth system. During his eighteen year career with the club, Zeki scored 470 goals in 352 matches, or 1.3 goals every match. Zeki was also capped for the Turkey national football team sixteen times, bagging 15 goals. Cihat Arman became the first in a long-line of long-serving goalkeepers at Fenerbahçe. Cihat played twelve seasons with the club, playing in 308 matches.

Lefter Küçükandonyadis was one of the first Turkish football players to play in Europe. Lefter spent two seasons in Europe, playing for ACF Fiorentina and OGC Nice before returning to Fenerbahçe. In all, Lefter scored 423 goals in 615 matches for the club, helping them to two Istanbul Football League titles, and three Turkish First Football League titles. Another player, Can Bartu, became the next big Turkish export to Europe. He was also the first Turkish player to play in a European competition final, doing so with ACF Fiorentina against Rangers on January 1, 1961. Can also spent some seasons playing for Venezia A.C. and S.S. Lazio before returning to Fenerbahçe in 1967.

He was a four-time league champion with Fenerbahçe and scored 162 goals in 330 matches. – – In recent decades, Fenerbahçe have gained an influx of foreigners who have helped the club to a joint-record of seventeen league titles. Among these include Uche Okechukwu, who after 13 seasons with Fenerbahçe and İstanbulspor became the longest serving foreigner in Turkey. During Uche's career with Fenerbahçe, he won two league titles and became a fan favourite. In more recent times, Fenerbahçe has been the home to Brazilian-born Mehmet Aurélio (Marco Aurélio), who in 2006, became the first naturalized Turkish citizen to play for the Turkey national football team. Wederson (Gökçek Vederson), another Brazilian-born naturalized Turkish citizen, was added to the squad in the beginning of the 2007–2008 season and now plays for Bursaspor since June 14, 2010, after his release by Fenerbahçe on May 31, 2010.
