Anadolu Efes Spor Kulübü (English: Anadolu Efes Sports Club), formerly Efes Pilsen, is a Turkish professional basketball team based in Istanbul, Turkey. It is the most successful club in the history of the Turkish Basketball Super League, having won the league's championship 13 times.

The home of Anadolu Efes S.K. is the Abdi İpekçi Arena in Istanbul, which has a seating capacity of 12,270 for basketball games. The club has its own practice facility in the district of Bahçelievler built in 1982. The team competes in the Turkish Basketball Super League and EuroLeague.

History[edit]

The club was established in 1976 as Efes Pilsen S.K. by taking over the Turkish second-division club Kadıköyspor, which had failed due to financial problems.[1] Its initial sponsor was its namesake Efes Pilsen, a subsidiary of the Anadolu Group. It won the 1978 second division championship undefeated, earning promotion to the Turkish first division, where it has continuously competed ever since. In its first top-flight season (1978–79), Efes Pilsen S.K. won the league title, immediately establishing itself as one of the country's top clubs.

After finishing 2nd in the 1992–93 FIBA European Cup (Saporta Cup), Efes Pilsen S.K. won the 1995–96 FIBA Korać Cup, which marked the first-ever European title won by a Turkish club in any team sport. Efes Pilsen S.K. (later renamed Anadolu Efes S.K.) has also become a fixture in the EuroLeague, making it to the competition's EuroLeague Final Four in 2000, and also to the FIBA SuproLeague's 2001 Final Four, finishing 3rd on both occasions.[2]

In 2011, the club changed its name to Anadolu Efes S.K. after the TAPDK (Tobacco and Alcohol Market Regulatory Authority) in Turkey prohibited the advertisement of tobacco and alcohol products in sports organizations.[3]

Anadolu Efes is notable for its youth program, which has trained renowned Turkish basketball players such as NBA player Hedo Türkoğlu, former NBA player Mirsad Türkcan, and 2005 NBA draftee Cenk Akyol.
