TFF Süper Kupa 2011 should have been the 39th edition of the Turkish Super Cup since its establishment as Presidential Cup in 1966. The match was going to be contested between the 2010–11 Süper Lig champions Fenerbahçe and the 2010–11 Turkish Cup winners Beşiktaş. The match was to be played on 31 July 2011[1] but the TFF postponed[2] but was cancelled after the match fixing scandal investigations. The venue for the final would have been the Erzurum Universiade Arena which would have hosted its first Turkish Super Cup final.

Background[edit]

This was to be the 7th overall national super cup matchup between the teams since 1966, and the 3rd matchup since 2006, when the cup was rebranded as TFF Süper Kupa. Fenerbahçe won in 2007 and 2009 against Beşiktaş, while Beşiktaş has yet to win their 2nd TFF Süper Kupa since their victory in the inaugural tournament. Also, both teams created a pattern, playing against each other in every other odd year.[3]

Path to the final[edit]

Fenerbahçe were champions by 26 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses, collecting 82 points overall. They were trailed by Trabzonspor, which collected the same number of points but came second due to head to head record. This also meant setting a new national record for Fenerbahçe, as they grabbed their record 18th title.[4]

On the other hand, Beşiktaş finished fifth in the Süper Lig, but were more successful in the domestic cup. They won the playoff round against Mersin İdmanyurdu, and won the group stage by three wins and one loss. They eliminated quarter finalists Gaziantep B.B. and semi finalists Gaziantepspor. Beşiktaş won their ninth cup by a decisive penalty shootout against first time finalists İstanbul B.B.[5]
