  5. ^ a b Zonguldakspor is seen as Fenerspor in TFF pages. Zongukdakspor experienced financial diffucultities and relegated from 2007–08 TFF Third League (see TFF Third League Group 4 page and Turkish Soccer page). The team took place in Turkish Regional Amateur League in Group 7. Although finished fourth the team played play-out game against Zonguldak amateur league champions D.M. Dilaverspor and lost. Then the winner took name "Zonguldakspor" and old Zonguldakspor took the name "Fenerspor" in order to overcome financial difficulties (See Zonguldakspor'un adı Fenerspor oldu Milliyet, 12 May 2011, (in Turkish)). Later Zonguldakspor took name of "Zonguldak Kömürspor" which was the name of the club when it was founded. When a team changes its name its name in previous seasons also change in TFF infobank. Therefore the "old" Zonguldakspor appears as Fenerspor in TFF game reports.
  6. ^ a b Kayserispor is seen as Kayseri Erciyesspor in TFF reports. At the end of 2003–04 season Kayseri Erciyesspor finished the TFF First League at second place and gained direct promotion to 2004–05 Süper Lig. The club interchanged their name and logo with those of Kayserispor (who finished 6th and could not promote) upon the request of 11th President of Turkey Abdullah Gül, then Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister and Member of Parliament for Kayseri. If a team changed its name its name in previous seasons also changed in game reports and league table in TFF database (But in results by rounds original names can be seen). Therefore, in the pages belonging to seasons before 2004–05 season, two teams take the place of each other in TFF archive pages. See club pages in infobank at TFF website.
