Description: Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Stadyumu

Stadium in the old and impoverished  district of Kasımpaşa was opened in 2005. Initially as an athletic venue with one stand, it had audience located on J-shaped sections tucked into the hill south of the pitch.

Upon opening it received the name of Turkish prime minister Erdogan, who originates from this district and used to be an athlete for the club. This made Kasımpaşa grow in football and after just 5 years in operation the running track was removed, pitch brought closer to the existing stand and new sections were built. Their irregular shape is caused by very small plot.

Thanks to the new stands and new seats at the ‘old’ stand capacity is now 14,234. Corners were filled with hospitality buildings, offices and indoor halls for other disciplines trained at Kasımpaşa.
