Trabzonspor are one of the most decorated clubs in Turkey. They have won seven Süper Lig titles and were the first non Istanbul-based club to win the league.[2] They also have won nine Federation Cup (Turkish Cup) titles. The club won their first championship title in 1975–76, and won three championship titles in a row in the 1978–79, 1979–80 and 1980–81 seasons.

The club colours are claret and sky blue, reflected in the shirt colours that see various striped iterations of the colours. Trabzonspor play at the Şenol Güneş Stadium which replaced the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium as their home ground during the 2016–17 season.[3]

History[edit]

In 1921 Trabzon İdman Ocağı were founded.[4] Trabzonspor were founded through a merger of several local clubs including İdman Ocağı in 1967.[5]

The club was in the league on six occasions in 1975–76, 1976–77, 1977–78, 1979–80, 1980–81 and 1983–84 respectively.[1]

In the 2010–11 season Trabzonspor finished runners-up to Fenerbahçe having achieved the same number of points, although Fenerbahçe won the title on goal difference.[6] After the title was given to Fenerbahçe, in the summer of 2011, the season became the subject of a match fixing scandal. On 25 June 2013, UEFA banned Fenerbahçe and Beşiktaş from European competitions over match-fixing.[7] However, both clubs were later acquitted by Turkish courts and the title remained with Fenerbahçe. Trabzonspor made several attempts to reclaim the title with appeals to FIFA, UEFA and CAS. On 26 March 2014, Gianni Infantino confirmed that no further punishment would be given to the clubs.[8]

Crest and colours[edit]

Trabzonspor uses the team logo, which has the abbreviation of its name, composed of the letter "TS" in blue with a combined font on a burgundy background.[9]

Although a number of theories have been put forward as to why the club colours of Trabzonspor are claret and blue, it has been claimed that they were adopted after the club were sent a set of kits by the English club Aston Villa after their formation in 1967.[10]

Stadium[edit]

Trabzonspor's stadium is named after former goalkeeper and manager Şenol Güneş

Since December 2016, their home ground is the Şenol Güneş Stadium, which has a capacity of 43,223.[11] Prior to this, Trabzonspor played their home matches at the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium, which has a capacity of 24,169.[11]
