Description: Başakşehir Stadi

Bearing the name of its home district in northern Istanbul (with Ataturk Olympiat just 6km south), this stadium is being built for IBB, much disliked municipal club without traditional fanbase, created in 1990.

Though football-specific, it has end stands slightly rounded, resembling a multi-use stadium. Initially the building was to have only side stands covered, but eventually the entire external cladding was rethought and roof was extended to cover all 14,500 seats.

Construction began in 2013 and is due for completion in 2014.
