Description: Altay Alsancak Stadı

First games at the site were played in 1910 by Greek club Panionios, which had to leave after the Turkish war for independence. It wasn’t until 1929 that stands were built and the stadium inaugurated officially.

For several decades it hosted games of almost all major clubs in Izmir, in late years being primarily used by Altay, Goztepe and Karsiyaka.

The stadium was located at the heart of Izmir, though in an industrial location between railways (west) and docks (north). Due to plot constraints it never received stands behind goals, being limited to two along the pitch – west side with double tier and east side as a single terrace.

In 2014 the stadium was deemed unsafe in a seismic resistance test and thus closed. Then in July 2015 demolition began, ending in September.
