Sakaryaspor is a Turkish football club, formed in 1965 after the merger of Yıldırımspor, Idmanyurdu, Güneşspor and Ada Gençlik. The football club is nicknamed the "Football Factory" by supporters.

Sakaryaspor became Second League champions in 1980–81 and 1986–87. They accomplished this feat again at the end of the 2005–2006 season. Sakaryaspor subsequently won a place in the play-off matches. After eliminating Istanbulspor in the first playoff match, Sakaryaspor went on to defeat Altay 4–1 in the finals and were promoted to the Süper Lig. They were relegated from the Süper Lig the following season.

Currently the team is playing in the TFF Third League, which is the fourth level of Turkish football.
