Istanbul - where two continents meet and football giants clash

Istanbul has been at the forefront of history for over 2000 years – and this city shows no signs of slowing down.

This is the place where Europe and Asia collide. Where the mythical spires of the Blue Mosque will blow your mind. And where 15 million people live, work, and play.

In a city this big, huge football clubs come with the territory – and Istanbul is home to the meteoric three-way rivalry between Galatasaray, Besiktas, and Fenerbahce. 

Three monstrous clubs with massive fanbases, crazy atmospheres, and derby days full of noise and colour.

If you’re looking for a truly exhilarating football experience – don’t look any further than Istanbul.
