Ankara SAŞ, is a Turkish football club based in the Turkish capital Ankara. In 2013-14 season, Ankaraspor participate in TFF First League after their expulsion from the Turkish Süper Lig by TFF on 4 August 2010 due to being sued by TFF for objection to forced relegation in 2009–10.
Ankara SAŞ was founded as Ankara Belediye Spor Kulübü in 1978. The club has undergone several name changes throughout its history. In 1984, they were renamed Ankara Büyükşehir Belediye Spor Kulübü.

These include badminton, basketball, boxing, handball, ice hockey, judo, oil wrestling, table tennis, wrestling. Finally, in 2005, the football club changed its name to the current name, Ankara Spor A.Ş and only focused on football, while Büyükşehir Belediye Ankaraspor Kulübü continued its activity on branches other than football.
On September 15, 2009, Ankaraspor A.Ş. was demoted from the Turkish Super League. “The Professional Football Disciplinary Committee (PFDK) decided to relegate Ankaraspor by one division over its unsportsmanlike relationship with Ankaragücü ruling that it was contrary to sporting competitiveness.” All Ankaraspor games in the 2009–10 season have been canceled and awarded 3–0 to Ankaraspor's opponents by default.
