My name is Yagiz Ozan. I am a Fener fan and a season ticket holder since 2007!
I am very passionate about the history and culture of my club. I will tell you stories about the urban and sports culture of Kadıköy. The walking route is around 5 km, and it takes 3-4 hours. Monuments, Fenerbahçe legends, hidden places of Fenerbahce Stadium, the house where Fenerbahçe SK was founded, a family from Liverpool… We will also drink pints with locals at the supporter bar and have freekicks at Fenerbahçe’s old training ground, Dereagzi!
This stadium is the first football pitch with a fence in Istanbul. First Leviathan British, then Greek and Armenian clubs, Fenerbahçe, Galatasaray, Beşiktaş, and hundreds of other teams have organized games at this stadium throughout the history.
Fenerbahce was founded in 1907, however people of Constantinople have been played football there since 1880. Constantinople Messenger, a newspaper from Ottoman Istanbul, affirmed this detail. For over 140 years, this stadium has been collecting memories. Let’s dive into it.
Meeting point: Kadıköy Haldun Taner Sahnesi
