Rising up from the backstreets of Istanbul’s Asian district of Kadikoy, Fenerbahce Sükrü Saracoglu Stadium is the second largest sports stadium in Turkey. ‘Fenerbahce’, meaning ‘Lighthouse Garden’ takes its name from the historic lighthouse which lines the shore of the nearby Fenerbahce district.
The Stadium, commonly referred to as just ‘Fenerbahce Stadium’, is the home venue of Fenerbahce Spor Kulubu (Sports Club), one of the top three of its kind in Turkey, which has been made especially famous by its football team. Fenerbahce’s supporters are given the name ‘Yellow Canaries’ after the team’s home colours of yellow and navy blue.
Fenerbahçe Sükrü Saracoglu Stadium is a large and modern arena with capacity for 53, 000 spectators. It was recently renovated and the design and acoustics are of a very high quality. The Stadium was selected to host the 2009 UEFA Cup Final which was the last final of the UEFA Cup football tournament.
