The tribunes are on fire! This is a statement you might witness happening both literally or metaphorically in Istanbul football games. My name is Ogulcan and since I was a kid I have been experiencing football games in tribunes and thanks to its atmosphere it’s my personal heaven (sometimes hell :P). Over the last 15 years, I have been going to both the away and home games of my team Fenerbahçe. You will understand why it is such a big passion for us when you experience a game with me in the stands.

We’ll go to see a football game of Fenerbahçe SK together and experience how Fenerbahçe fans in Turkey live football. We will witness the passion, the customs, and the meaning of supporting a team in Istanbul. We’ll see the colorful fans, hear the sound of the drums, sing the songs, and hopefully taste a victory!

From the meeting point until the stadium, we will be doing what Fenerbahçe fans do. We will walk to places where they paint with club colors, have a beer or soda where they drink and hopefully, we will be singing their pre-game songs together with them.

Thanks to my experience with these games inside and outside of Turkey, I can guarantee you that I exactly know what a fan needs before, during, and after the game. I personally will be your guide during the whole experience. I will be next to you the whole game giving you hints for making your experience better. You don’t have to worry about tickets, logistics, security, or anything else: just enjoy the game! I will be providing a ticket and the information needed about that specific game we will attend to. So feel free to ask anything about the club, history, players, or football in general.

I will personally give away Fenerbahçe scarves to those who want the share the experience with me. I am a congress member of the club and this allows me to shop with a 10% discount in the club’s stores. So I will be helping you to use this discount if you would like to shop in the Fenerbahçe Store.

I have been a tourist guide in Istanbul for 5 years so I can help you with anything related to the city and transportation. After the game, I’ll give you instructions on how to easily return home safe and sound.

I will also let you know what colors to wear or not to wear to the game and will teach a couple of simple chants to learn beforehand

We shall sing together: YAŞA FENERBAHÇE!


*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

*seats are behind the goal and we stand during the entire match

*it might get very loud in the stadium please bring earmuffs if you think it would disturb you.

*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.

Ogulcan is the best! We contacted, he made a group and wrote all the rules and the plan. We met at the bar and he told everything about football in Turkey in clear English. At the stadium we had very good seats and the atmosphere was amazing! Thank you for this unforgettable experience! If you are planning to go to Istanbul and watch football, Ogulcan is the best guy you can find.

Fenerbahçe Match Local Experience

The Fenerbahçe Matchday Experience was the highlight of my trip to Istanbul. OG is an incredible host. He provided me with full local experience I was looking for. From start to finish you are among the Fenerbahçe fans. He treated our group with delicious street food before and after the match. I felt he made eveyone in our demographicly diverse group feel welcome. A huge bonus to booking this experience is, OG takes care of the inconvenience of getting your passolig card so you can enter the stadium.

Excellent experience

OG is a really nice guy, and most of all full of passion for Fenerbahçe. He takes care of you in all possible manners. I can’t recommend this experience enough!

Brilliant experience!

Turkish football fans are full of energy, song, and wild support from one hour before kick-off until the players salute them after the game. As a football fan this was a rich experience - but this also gave us a true Istanbul travel experience too. Arranging an experience like this as a tourist would be daunting. The Passolig system alone is enough to put people off. Then there’s the tickets. Then, how do you know where you can sit (seating is not assigned behind the goals)? OG’s communication was excellent from the start, and he takes care of all these things. You just turn up to the cool, youthful food and drink-filled area of Kadikoy, listen to a few football/Fenerbahce stories from OG over a beer or raki, wear the scarf he has gifted for you, and follow him to the stadium. He knows the stadium windows for Passolig/Tickets, and the best places to sit inside the ground. Once in the stand, the Fenerbahce fans take things from there. The crowd behind the goals is full of energy. The fans are mostly young men, but lots of women too. My wife loves football but has not been to many big games (we live in the football backwater of Australia). She absolutely loved this whole experience. She felt 100% safe throughout, and we have videos of us jumping arm in arm with Fenerbahce fans on top of our seats looking very happy! A great travel memory. OG even treated us to a Cig Kofte after the game (don’t worry, they don’t use the raw meat anymore!). It was honestly a jewel of our Istanbul visit, and we’re so glad we shook off any worries and took the leap. Thanks OG. We hope to do it again next time we visit your extraordinary city. 👍

Football at its best

OG is a great chap and excellent host. He organized everything for us from the passolig card to the tickets, the pre match drinks before the game and navigated us safely through the crazy fan crowd 😊. Highly recommended!

Fener - Hatay

I have to thank OG for such a great experience, with everything from explaining how it works to meeting us on game day. He showed us the perfect place to have a drink with all the fans before the game and then just talked about football and specifically Fener. And the game was fantastic, the atmosphere incredible, and the football on point (4-2 win). I would recommend this to anyone and I will definitely be back soon!

Lee Galvin



10/10 experience! OG’s passion and knowledge for Fenerbahce made this even better! We met OG and the rest of the group before the game to soak up the pre match atmosphere which was fantastic. OG is super knowledgeable about Fener and his love of the team makes this experience even better. In the stadium we were sitting right behind the goal, the Fener fans were fantastic. They sang all game and OG was with us the whole time giving us facts and teaching us chants. If you are in Istanbul book this experience!

What a day

Sometimes 5 star reviews don't seem genuine but OG deserves 6 out of 5 if that were possible. He was very informative, easy going and you can tell he lives and breathes Fenerbahçe and football generally. It was great to hear about the culture and history of the club as well has his own experiences following the team over a couple of pre-game beers. The stadium was very nice, we had a great view. We were amongst some passionate singing and everyone we met was very friendly. Fener won 2-1 coming from 1-0 down which was the cherry on the cake as well.

OG is the man! Incredible experience going to see Fenerbahce with him. Extremely knowledgable about Fenerbahce, Istanbul, and all things Turkish football. A true highlight of my trip, cannot recommend this experience enough!

Wonderful matchday with Oğulcan (Fenerbayce - Karagümrük / 09.10.2022)

Many thanks to Oğulcan ("OG")! It was a wonderful experience being part of the matchday. Oğulcan took care of us weeks before the match day and informed us extensively about the organizational processes. On match day, the group met over a beer and then moved to the stadium. With his comradely nature, Oğulcan created a relaxed atmosphere in the group. With his extensive knowledge of Fenerbahce, no question about the team went unanswered. We also visited the fan shop. The atmosphere in the stadium was fantastic. The fact that Fenerbahce had won 5:4 in an exciting and high-scoring game finally made the matchday perfect. We hope that many other interested people will experience such a wonderful Fenerbahce Matchday together with Oğulcan; you are in good hands with Oğulcan! We will return too.

Fenerbahce Ogulcan

an incredible experience, it meets everything it mentions, I thank ogulcan for a really great day and experience



Fenerbache Review with Ogulcan

Great day out at the football. We went to the area early and had some good food near the fish market. There was a great atmosphere with the fenerbache fans. We then met Ogulcan who took us for pre match beers and then made sure we got to the ground in good time. He arranged all the tickets and the passolig card so everything was easy. The game was great and the atmosphere was bouncing, a good 5-4 win with the winner in the 90th minute too. Highly recommended

Fenerbahçe match day experience

OG is a pretty cool guy who is knowledgeable about the area and the football club itself. He helped us around the city from pre match where we grabbed a couple beers and chat for a few with the other guests that he was touring with. He shared with us some information about the history of the club and past players and got us into the game without any issues. We were able to engage in the chants because it taught us what to say and when so that made us feel at home with everyone else. There was even a point where I wanted to buy the home jerseys but my card kept declining and he decided to use his instead (I had to give the money back when I had the issue sorted thou lol). In the end we grabbed some street food which was good and he directed us on how to get home. 10/10 experience. Big up yourself OG. Much love from Jamaica 🇯🇲

Fener Derby v Galatasaray with Ogulçan

Istanbul derby was on my list since long ago. Never really took the step forward until I was convinced to go with Homefans and their local host Ogulçan. You cannot really have it any better. On that day we met with OG many hours before kick-off in a restaurant full of Fenerbahçe supporters. People were already so hyped up and cheering all together. He brought us to the official store and got us a nice discount on the merch there with his member card. He also brought us to some nice Fener graffitis around the stadium. OG secured short side tickets for us and I was suddenly immersed in what Turkish football does best. Support was insane, all the stadium was wild! Chanting and jumping in every part of it. Never felt unwelcomed by local fans and always felt safe with all OG's reccomendation. He was really caring and flexible. Needless to say I reccomend this matchday experience to anyone looking for football highest intensity experiences. Tesekkuler OG !

Amazing Istanbul Football Experience

Ogulçan was a great host. He was always one message away for any question before our trip to Istanbul and sorted out the whole passolig process flawlessly. During the matchday experience, he not only managed to get for us the best seats in the stadium, but was really a great companion throughout the game, commenting lots of really cool things about Turkish football. On top of that he gave us amazing tips for our free day in Istanbul which we followed and we’re not disappointed! Highly recommended experience and host! Thanks OG 🤙🏻
