Fan group Boz Baykuşlar
IBB hardly had any supporters, despite playing in the country's largest stadium every home game felt like an away match. For years the Atatürk Olympic Stadium was the centerpiece to a strange spectacle, the only supporters in the stands would be fans of opposition teams. However, over time the team has won over some followers and they founded a supporter group called the, ‘Boz Baykuşlar’ (Grey Owls). 
They are one of the most unusual supporter groups in Turkey, their numbers are small and they never engage in hooliganism, violence or insulting the opposition. They are renowned for their witty slogans, "Bize her yer deplasman!" (Everywhere is away for us), "Hakem haklı beyler!" (The referee is right, guys), ‘Maç Var Dediler Geldik!’ (They said there was a game being played so we thought we’d come along).
It is unknown if the group will stay with the club after the name-change.
