History[edit]

Karşıyaka SK was founded in 1912 and opened its basketball section in 1966. Karşıyaka Basket is considered to be one of the most important basketball teams in all of Turkey. They first played in the Turkish Basketball League in 1966. They relegated to lower divisions in 1968. The club also played in lower divisions from 1968 to 1974. The team is still participating in the Turkish Basketball League since 1974. Karşıyaka Basket is sponsored by Pınar since 1998. It is the product of Yaşar Holding's Food and Beverage Group. Their home arena is the Karşıyaka Arena with a capacity of 5,000 seats, which was opened in 2005.[1] They share the facilities with the Karşıyaka Women's Volleyball Team. The team has a reputation for developing young talent and scouting for lesser-known foreign players. The team is also known for its successful cadet infrastructure which has promoted many stars for Turkish basketball in recent years. Karşıyaka is known for having a strong energetic supporter base at Karşıyaka Arena which also frequently cheers its team on at away matches as well.
