Hello, football fan! My name is Ogulcan (OG shortly) and I have been going to football games in and out of Istanbul since 2002.

There are 8 Istanbul teams in the Turkish Super Leauge at the moment: Fenerbahce, Besiktas, Galatasaray, Kasimpasa, Basaksehir, Pendikspor, Karagumruk and Istanbulspor.

Being an away fan is always fun in Turkey. You get to travel and visit different colorful towns. Istanbul is an enormous city with 22 million+ people living in it.  So each town has some significant history and point of interest.

From the very west to the very east it can take approximately 3-4 hours to reach Istanbul. So this means regarding the location of the stadium we might have to drive for a while. Please ask the itinerary for each game you would like to attend.

In the derbies between the big three, for security reasons, away fans are not allowed since COVID-19. But do not worry. Other games in Istanbul are not being considered or categorized as big-deal derbies. So they are totally safe and fun! But if there is still a historical aspect and rivalry I will inform you and keep you updated about its story.

Let’s go have an adventure and be the minority that is hated by the majority in Istanbul!

Please Note:

*We will experience the match as fans of the team corresponding to the away side(right side) of the written football match.
*even though smoking in stadiums is forbidden this law does not apply and there is heavy smoking and secondhand smoke in all seats of the stadium
*Since the exact dates of some matches have not been announced yet, they are randomly scheduled depending on the weekend the matches are played. The entered match will be played on the same weekend, with a low probability of Friday or Monday, and a high probability of Saturday or Sunday.

Is Homefans responsible for the activity?

Even though we are a friendly bunch, we are not directly responsible for the activity.

We are a marketplace, which means we facilitate that travellers like yourself, take part in a sports experience offered by a fully-vetted local host who has enrolled on the platform.

The responsibility to carry out the activity relies exclusively on the local host. However, we as a marketplace act in the interests of everyone, supervising everything and facilitating  communication and support when needed for a flawless experience.

Is the match date confirmed?

Whilst the fixture calendar has been released, final confirmed dates are usually announced 2-3 weeks before the kick-off date, due to TV schedule. It is possible then, that Sunday matches will move to Saturday and vice-versa.  The local hosts will keep you posted in case there is a change.

When will I receive confirmation of the tour?

When you choose and pay for your an activity on the Homefans marketplace, you will receive a booking confirmation directly after the booking via email. In this confirmation, you will get all the details of your booking.

What does an activity include?

An activity on the Homefans marketplace involves a fully-vetted host, who offers a specific experience around a sporting event (match day experience with a ticket for the game) or some other cultural experiences (walking tours, stadium & museum tours with a local, among others).

They last between 2 hours up to a whole day. Please check the inclusions in each activity on the “What’s Included‘ section.

How will the host get in touch?

Once the booking is done, you will receive an order confirmation and the Homefans tech platform will notify the host about it. You can always chat with the host on the marketplace by clicking on the ‘ASK A QUESTION‘ button – you will send and receive messages you can check on your own dashboard with email notifications.

A few days prior to the game, the host will get in touch with you via Whatsapp to arrange the appropriate logistics.

How are the activities planned and executed?

The activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals that have been approved by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above.

However,  this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own.

Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

Can I pay a deposit for an activity?

Unfortunately, given that the activities are 100% offered by local hosts onboarded on the Homefans marketplace, this is not possible.

All activities are paid 100% upfront to ensure a correct preparation by the local host.

I have to cancel my activity - what can I do?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend the activity you booked, you can do it within the next 24 hours after your booking was done.

According to our Terms & Conditions, after the 24 hour window, the host cancellation policy applies, and it depends on each host.  Given that it involves tickets, it’s usually non-refundable.

If you have solid grounds on why you want to cancel, please get in touch with Homefans and we will facilitate the process with the local host.

Can I upgrade my seat location?

Please get in touch with the local host on the activity’s page (and clicking the ASK A QUESTION button) to enquire – the local host will let you know if it’s possible.
