FC Türkiyemspor was a Dutch football club based in Amsterdam which was active from 1987 to 2009 when the club went bankrupt. The club quickly rose through the ranks of amateur football, winning four promotions between 1996 and 2002. Türkiyemspor won the Hoofdklasse title in its maiden season in 2002/03 and successfully defended the championship the year after. In 2004/05, Türkiyemspor were runners-up, only to regain the title the following season.

Change came when entrepreneur and chairman Nedim Imaç was assassinated on February 17, 2007. A week after his death, newspaper De Telegraaf reported that Imaç had been involved in heroin trade.
