Darüşşafaka Spor Kulübü, is a professional basketball club based in İstanbul, Turkey, founded in 1951. The club plays in the Turkish Basketball Super League. Its home arena for domestic Turkish League games is Darüşşafaka Ayhan Şahenk Sports Hall, with a capacity of 3,500, while its home arena for EuroLeague games is the Volkswagen Arena Istanbul, with a capacity of 5,240. As of the beginning of the 2013–14 season, the club signed a long term agreement with Doğuş Holding, and changed its sponsorship name to Darüşşafaka Doğuş.

Founded as a multisport club in 1914, basketball is his most representative section.

History[edit]

From 1993 until 2010, Darüşşafaka was a stable TBL (now called BSL) competitor. In the 2000–01 and 2001–02 seasons, the team took the third place in the regular season. In the 2009–10 season, the club ended up in 16th place in the TBL and was relegated.[1] The team was then a middle-tier team in the TB2L from 2010 until 2013.

In 2013, Doğuş Holding became the main sponsor of the team, which instantly turned Darüşşafaka into a wealthy and ambitious club. In the 2013–14 season, they won the TB2L title, and were promoted to the TBL (now called BSL).

In the 2014–15 season, Darüşşafaka took the third place in the regular season, after some big names like Renaldas Seibutis and Jamon Gordon were signed for the season. Despite the huge expectations, the team lost in the quarterfinals of the league playoffs to Trabzonspor.[2]

The team received a wild card for the 2015–16 Euroleague season.[3] Darüşşafaka started playing its EuroLeague home games at the Volkswagen Arena Istanbul, starting from November 2015.

Arenas[edit]

Darüşşafaka plays its national domestic Turkish Basketball Super League home games at the 3,500 seat Darüşşafaka Ayhan Şahenk Sports Hall.[4] In November 2015, the 5,240 seat Volkswagen Arena Istanbul was officially inaugurated as the home arena of Darüşşafaka for EuroLeague home games.[5][6]
