FB SUKRU SARACOGLU FROM AIR
Sükrü Saracoglu Stadium is a football stadium in the Kadiköy district of Istanbul, Turkey, and is the home venue of Fenerbahçe S.K.. It was inaugurated in 1908, renovated between 1999 and 2006 and currently increased in capacity. It is the first stadium in Turkey designed according to official football regulations in standards. On October 4, 2006, after numerous inspections by the UEFA, Sükrü Saracoglu Stadium was selected to host the 2009 UEFA Cup Final.
The Fenerbahçe Sükrü Saracoglu Stadium has gone through a complete rebuilding process which involved each stand being demolished and rebuilt in turn. Each stand has been built closer to the pitch, getting the fans closer to the action on the field. This style of stadium has never before existed in Turkey, as the stands are usually separated from the pitch by a running track.
The "Maraton" stand can hold up to 14,500 spectators. This stand includes "Box Offices" which have all been rented out from the club. These Box Offices, equipped with TV’s, Internet, work areas, dining facilities and many other luxuries, are the first of their kind in Turkey. Facing Maraton is the "Fenerium" stand with its 15,000 seats capacity and its equally luxurious "1907" zone. With each remaining stands (namely "Migros" and "Telsim") having a 10,500 capacity, the total capacity of the stadium is 50,509.
Equipment: Before Sükrü Saracoglu Stadyumu was built, the field was known as Papazin Çayiri. In 1908, local teams needed a regular soccer field, so this land was leased from the Ottoman Sultan Abdülhamid II for 30 Ottoman gold pounds a year. The total construction cost was 3,000 Ottoman gold pounds.
The Union Club Field was used by many teams in Istanbul, including the owner, Union Club (which changed its name to Ittihatspor after World War I), Fenerbahçe, Galatasaray and Beþiktaþ. However, it had lost its importance when a bigger venue, the Taksim Stadium, was built in 1922, inside the courtyard of the historic Taksim Topçu Kislasi (Taksim Artillery Barracks), which was located at the present-day Taksim Gezi Parki (Taksim Park).
In 1929, the club which owned the stadium, Ittihatspor, was shut down by the CHP government, in which Þükrü Saracoðlu was a member. Thus, the ownership of the stadium passed to the state, but the field was immediately leased to Fenerbahçe. Later, in 1933, Fenerbahçe purchased the stadium from the government for 9,000 TL; when Sükrü Saracoðlu was the President of Fenerbahçe.
The name of the field was changed to Fenerbahçe Stadium, and this made Fenerbahçe SK the first football club in Turkey to own its stadium, with the help of the Sükrü Saracoðlu government. In the following years, Fenerbahçe SK renovated the stadium and increased its seating capacity. By the year 1949, Fenerbahçe Stadium was the largest football venue in Turkey, with a seating capacity of 25,000.

1)Mithat pasha Stadium (ottoman period prime minister name)
2)Dolmabahce Stadium (name of the where is located
3)Inonu Stadium (This stadium constracted during his precidency)
Besiktas Inönü Stadium (Turkish: Besiktas Inönü Stadyumu) is the home of the football club Besiktas J.K. in Istanbul, Turkey. It is located in Dolmabahçe, close to the elegant Dolmabahçe Palace in the district of Beþiktaþ, on the European side of Istanbul. The stadium has a capacity of 32,145 (all-seater).
BJK Inönü Stadium was designed by Italian architect Paolo Vietti Violi, who collaborated with Turkish architects Sinasi Sahingiray and Fazil Aysu for preparing the project. The stadium, formerly known as the Dolmabahçe Stadium due to its vicinity to Dolmabahçe Palace, was inaugurated on 19 May 1947 by Ismet Inönü, the second President of Turkey, and Lütfi Kirdar, the Governor of Istanbul. Interestingly, the first goal in this stadium was scored by Süleyman Seba, the most famous and longest-presiding Chairman of the club (in the 1980s and 1990s) when he used to be a player of Besiktas JK.
According to the great football legend Pelé, BJK Inönü Stadium has the most beautiful view of any stadium in the world, is one of the world's most beautiful football venues, and is definitely the most beautiful stadium in Europe.
While seated on the tribunes of this stadium, one can see the Bosphorus, Dolmabahçe Palace, Dolmabahçe Clock Tower, Dolmabahçe Mosque, and the famous Kýz Kulesi (Maiden's Tower). It is the only stadium in the world from which a football fan can view two continents, Europe and Asia, which are separated by the Bosphorus.
CURRENT ALI SAMI YEN
Ali Sami Yen Stadi is the home of the football club Galatasaray SK in Istanbul, Turkey. It is named after the founder of the club, Ali Sami Yen. The stadium has a capacity of 24,990 (all-seater) and is situated in the Mecidiyeköy quarter of the Þiþli district at the center of the city.
Ali Sami Yen Stadium was inaugurated on December 14th, 1964, with a friendly game between Turkey and Bulgaria. Unfortunately, tragedy struck during the opening match: in one of the stands many people fell onto the first floor, which caused numerous injuries, but luckily none of them were fatal. Spotlights were added to the stadium in 1965, and night games began to be played (the lighting system was renovated in 1993). The stadium is made up of 2 identical lateral stands which are covered by a roof: the Numaralý (Numbered) stand, where the TV cameras are located; and the Kapali (Covered) stand, where the most fanatical team supporters usually view the games. The two other stands, behind the goal gates, are the Yeni Açýk (New Open), with 2 tiers, and the Eski Açik (Old Open), with the electronic scoreboard.
In the past, games were played in front of more than 40,000 spectators in this stadium, which is nicknamed "Hell" by Galatasaray's supporters because of its intimidating atmosphere and the enthusiastic support of the fans who often make mass use of torches, smoke, drums, flags and giant posters to create visual grandeur and apply psychological pressure on visiting teams. Ali Sami Yen is important for Galatasaray because it has seen many victories against renowned European football clubs, such as FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, PSV Eindhoven, AS Monaco, Leeds United, Deportivo La Coruna, PSG, Rangers and many others.

Atatürk Olympic Stadium (Turkish: Atatürk Olimpiyat Stadi) located in Ikitelli, a district in the western outskirts of Ýstanbul, is the largest-capacity stadium of Turkey. Its construction began in 1999 and was completed in 2002. It was built for Turkey's Olympic Games bid and cost about 130 million TRY (100 million USD).
With its 81,283 (all-seater) capacity and Olympic size, it was granted the "5-star sports complex" title by the UEFA in 2004, enabling it to host the finals of UEFA events. The stadium is also certified by the IAAF and IOC for athletic competitions. Atatürk Olympic Stadium has hosted some European athletic competitions. Galatasaray SK played its home games at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium during the 2003-2004 football season, due to the bad condition of their own venue, Ali Sami Yen Stadium, and this was criticized by other teams. Galatasaray eventually returned back to Ali Sami Yen for the 2004-2005 season, and is currently building a new 52,000-seater stadium with a retractable roof in the Seyrantepe neighbourhood near Maslak financial district. Sivasspor also played some of its home games at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium due to the bad weather conditions in their original hometown stadium.
The 2005 Champions League final between A.C. Milan and Liverpool F.C. was played on May 25, 2005, at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium. During the match, Liverpool were trailing 3-0 at half time but made the most dramatic comeback in the tournament's history, scoring 3 goals in just 6 minutes to bring the game to 3-3 by the end of normal time. No more goals were scored in extra time, bringing the game to penalties. Liverpool went on to win the shoot-out 3-2.
