Overview

Galatasaray is the team with the largest fanbase in Turkey and has won more championships than any other team. Fans of this magnificent club have seen first hand many achievements in their new stadium with a capacity of more than 50,000.

The stadium is called Türk Telekom Arena and is located next to the Vadi İstanbul shopping mall. For years this place has been a meeting point of the Galata fans for pregame and warm up before matches.

Join local hosts Ogulçan or Arif to soak up in the best atmosphere you can ever experience!

Lions are the symbol of Galatasaray, so you are gonna have it like one of the lions! First, you will gather in the lions’ den: Nevizade, Taksim. This is where all Galatasaray fans gather, drink, and chant among the beautiful narrow streets of Taksim. Then you will head to the Shopping mall via metro a little bit earlier than usual (around 1.5h before kickoff).  You will join fellow Galata fans and soak up in the atmosphere!  This is also good for finding the best seats in the tribune since our part is first come first serve.  Then we will enjoy the game hoping the lion hunts!

We can’t wait to see your face the first time you see the pitch.

Meeting point: Nevizade, Taksim.

Is Homefans responsible for the activity?

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

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.

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

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.
