Sakaryaspor Kulübü Derneği is a Turkish professional football club, formed in 1965 after the merger of Yıldırımspor, Idmanyurdu, Güneşspor and Ada Gençlik. The club is better known as Sakaryaspor. The football club is nicknamed the "Football Factory" by supporters. Sakaryaspor became TFF First League champions in 1980–81 and 1986–87. They accomplished this feat again at the end of the 2005–06 season. Sakaryaspor subsequently won a place in the play–off matches. After eliminating İstanbulspor in the first play–off 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 Second League, which is the third level of Turkish football.
