Last updated.  28 April

My name is Yagiz, and for this matchday experience around Besiktas, I will open you the doors of the legendary Vodafone Park!

Join me in Istanbul to discover an iconic team of Istanbul and Turkish football. Football games in Istanbul are very often played in hectic atmospheres. Besiktas makes no exception, it actually contributes to the trend.

The stadium is located in a really pleasant area, on the docks of the strait, which gives you incredible sightseeing on Istanbul. If you are hungry, I’ll show you where you can enjoy the best Turkish meals before we head to the game.

We’ll be enjoying the game from the best seat location possible in the stadium, usually central longside, where we can enjoy both shows, on the pitch and in the stands.

Did you know ? Two of the highest ever decibel records have been measured here, in Istanbul stadiums. And one was precisely here, at the Vodafone Park. It is said that for European competition, players from the visiting team can sometimes get headaches or feel discomfort, all that due to the noise the loyal fans create.

Learn about Istanbul and Turkish Sports history with an expert ! If your schedule allows it, we will start early in the afternoon, with a very interesting Roman and Byzantine Sports Heritage tour.

We’ll then head to Besiktas, with the possibility to refresh and have a snack before the game, in the surroundings of the stadium that will be getting crowded with Besiktas fans. Then it will be time for us to enter the stadium and simply enjoy the game and the atmosphere !

A Besiktas matchday experience is not something you can forget that easily, and I will make sure you enjoy it to the fullest, and in a safe way.

FAQs

Will the stadiums be open in 2021/22? At what capacity?

Homefans believe that stadiums will be open to fans, however we cannot at this stage confirm what the capacity will be.  However our flexible booking policies mean that if the stadium will only accept 50% fans and you decide you only want to travel with 100% attendance you can swap to another venue or another date.

Will I need to prove I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

This will vary destination to destination and based on your nationality and age. Therefore Homefans are not able to advise on this.  Please check the foreign ministry of your destination and home country and the stadium requirements.  Again, if you find the requirements too much you can defer to later in the season/year when they relax further.

COVID-19 hasn’t gone away- should I still book?

We believe so, we all need something to look forward to.  But we understand that people may be apprehensive which is why we have created a flexible cancellation policy which means in the event that the event does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit. 

You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

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 children / young adults join the tour?

If we can accept children there will be an option in the booking flow. However for many trips our local hosts take the decision, based on the content of the tour, to open this up to adults only. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Is the match date confirmed?

Weekend matches can move from Saturday to Sunday and vice-versa.  We provide the current scheduled date but we would advise you only to book the matchday experience if you are available in the destination for the whole weekend.

Go Beşkitaş !

One Word to describe this experience Insane ! I was there for at first for the Fener - Gala derby but learn Besiktas was playing one day prior so since I'm there why not going see them too ?! So ended up going in Besiktas district with my friend and Yagiz ! Thanks to him he takes us to make a little tour of the area and the street were really nice, going to check some graffiti too! We also sat just next to the rally point for besiktas supporter before the match and as time past the street were more and more crowded! The atmosphere was amazing and won't even talked about the stadium and the match itself! Soooo many good memories from the start to the end thanks to Yagiz and OG ! Will come back one day for sure !

Beşiktaş game at Vodafone Arena

I watched Besiktas - Alanyaspor game with Homefans (their Istanbul hosts Yagiz and Ogulcan) - what a game!!! When the opportunity popped up to visit this game as well during my Istanbul football weekend, I thought it would be nice, to add one more team and one more stadium to my list - what I really didn't expect was this attendance and this atmposhere in a match that wasn't derby :) We also went for couple of drinks before the game in a quarter packed with pubs with Besiktas fans, all singing and lighting torches around. Surreal experience. Thanks guys, highly recommended!

Besiktas Madness

I was in Istanbul for the Fener-Gala Derby with Homefans and took the luxious opportunity to attend a Besiktas home game. What I thought to be a warm up for the derby on the next day turned out to be a total madness show. Yagiz helped me hunt some nice Besiktas graffitis before the game, while grabing some drinks on the way to the stadium. Stadium was totally full for a game against an average team Alanyaspor. One of the loudest stadiums I've been to. Really enjoyed every second of it. Tesekkurler!!

Besiktas 4-1 Alanyaspor ⚫⚪

During our trip to Istanbul we wanted to attend a Besiktas game. The hosts made it really easy for us to get tickets and to get from Asia side of Istanbul to European side of Besiktas. The whole stadium was stood up and chanting all game and it was a fantastic way to kick off our trip to Istanbul. Thanks again lads!

Authentic & Exciting Experience you should not miss

Yagiz was amazing. He knows a lot about Turkish football and he brought me to the most authentic places before the match. We had local food at one of the most famous restaurants in Besiktas and then we walked with the fans to the stadium. Vodafone Arena is one of the most beautiful stadiums you will see in your life...Besiktas fans are amazing and for sure you will never forget this experience, designed for the most passionate football fans. Thank Yagiz! I hope I can go back soon! PS: dont miss SFENDON merch designed by Yagiz!
