Super Lig 2018-19 fixtures
If you are excited for the upcoming Super Lig, make sure you get your tickets early. The Super Lig is the top-flight league in Turkey and consists of eighteen teams. The format is the same as the English Premier League - the club with the most points is crowned champion and the three lowest placed teams are relegated to the 1.Lig with three teams from the 1.Lig gaining promotion to the Super Lig. The league features the best teams and most exciting football in Turkey. So don't miss out, get your Super Lig tickets today, here at StubHub. The current Super Lig champions are Galatasaray and they will be hoping to fend off the challenges of teams like Besiktas and Fenerbahce as they look to defend their superlig crown.
Istanbul's Dominance of the Super Lig
Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, is home to the three most successful football clubs in Turkey, also known as the Big Three. They are Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray. Between them, they have won the Turkish Super Lig 70 times (out of 77), with Fenerbahce having won 28, Galatasaray 22 and Besiktas 15. None of them has ever been relegated from the Super Lig since its first season in 1959 and only two other clubs have won the league title - Trabzonspor (6) and Bursaspor (1). The 2016-17 season saw footballing minnows Basaksehir nearly upset the apple cart and have their own 'Leicester City moment' as they pushed eventual winners Beskitas all the way, eventually finishing second. 2018 saw normal service resume as Galatasaray fought off the challenge of Fenerbahce to lift the Super Lig trophy. Will this season be the year that we see someone other than the 'Big Three' win the Super Lig? Well, the best way to find out is buying your football tickets and seeing for yourself!
Super Lig records
To say that Turkey is passionate about football would be an understatement. Thousands of fans flock to stadiums like Turk Telecom Stadium or Vodafone Park, and those who can't make it to the games flood the streets of Istanbul and other Turkish cities. A Super Lig match is an unforgettable experience and one we highly recommend you try at least once. There have been some legendary players to compete in Turkey's top flight. Hakan Sukur is the top Super Lig scorer of all time with 249 goals to his name and he also sits third on the appearance list, behind Oguz Cetin and Riza Calimbay. With players from all countries competing in the league, the Superlig has a wonderfully international flavour, especially in Istanbul.
