The 2002-03 Turkish First Football League was the 45th edition of top-flight professional football in Turkey. The season celebrated the centenary of Beşiktaş J.K., who became eventual champions. Moreover, Malatyaspor qualified for the first time in a European cup competition after a 2-0 away win at Turkish Cup winners Trabzonspor combined with Fenerbahçe's draw at İzmir with relegated Göztepe, 1-1, despite being ahead in the first half. So far, they are the only team from Eastern Anatolia to play in UEFA competitions.
