Football on the rise since the early 20th century
The hype of football can’t be thought away from Turkey any more, and it all started when the Besiktas club was established in 1903. Founded by sport enthusiasts, the club presented a range of activities – and still does – including athletics, basketball and, of course, football. Quickly, the football branch became the most popular of the sports club and the first professional team in Turkey was established. In 1918 they won the Turkish First Sports League, but it was only the literal kick-off to a flourishing and successful career as a team and football club. Regularly among the frontrunners of important Turkish league tournaments, it’s no wonder so many fans back the resilient team. In fact, between 1939 and 1943, Besiktas managed to win the Istanbul championships five consecutive times, and even though their performance declined a little in the 1980s, they’re now back stronger than ever. Sweeping off the trophies in their national leagues, they also compete in European tournaments. They’ve participated in European championships and cups and have reached the quarter-finals regularly. With tickets for Besiktas Football Club from StubHub, you can see them kicking off at a great variety of tournaments and stand witness to their skills. Give your support to one of Turkey’s best and longest standing teams, or simply sell tickets on StubHub again if you realise you can’t make it after all.
Support the "Black Eagles" on their rise

Rumour has it that the voice of a fisherman cheered the team on with this name during a game in the 1940-41 season, leading the team to a resounding victory of 6–0 over their opponents. Ever since then, the nickname of "Black Eagles" has stuck and brought them more success and goals.
