Beykoz Stadyumu – stadium description
Its name comes from the district in northern Istanbul, where it’s located. The stadium lies just east of Bosporus, in modest park surroundings. It’s home to Beykozspor, a district club established back in 1908.
As the club celebrated their centenary, the stadium received a facelift. New social rooms, artificial turf, yellow and black seats and small stand along northern side of the pitch were added.
The biggest reconstruction to date took place in 2017-18, when a synthetic field was installed and all of the old auditorium replaced by new one. Almost all of the 3,000 seats are now in the south, where the main grandstand is joined by a tall, 4-level administrative building.
Turkey: Standing legalised across all leagues
After years of the all-seater rule, Turkey has moved towards a more open approach. Following legal changes from 2019 and early 2020 stadia can now function also without individual seats in some areas.
Turkey: Fans not letting go, stadiums still empty
TV cameras aren’t showing the stands too much anymore, because there’s nothing to show. Stadiums are half-empty at best, while supporters took their case to the Supreme Court.
Turkey: Empty stadiums, fans in court
Beşiktaş drew only about 2,000 people to the country’s largest stadium. Galatasaray witnessed a 9,000 turnout. Numbers sound worse in smaller clubs. Meanwhile fans challenge the new fan ID cards in court.
Turkey: Supporters protest new fan cards
Just like the Italian “Tessera del Tifoso”, new Turkish Passolig card causes huge controversies. Fans across the country boycott games and take into the streets.
Turkey: Political protests inside stadiums banned
With Turkish supporters loudly reminding prime minister Erdogan of civil liberties, the government prepared a set of measures to stifle them. All under the slogan of counter-terrorism.
New stadiums: Rize and trio from Istanbul
A new portion of Turkish stadiums just landed. Three of them are of less known Istanbul district clubs, one of which is currently chasing the Galata/Fener/Besiktas ‘big three’ in the league. Two others… aren’t, but we still find them really charming!
