If you are excited for the upcoming Super Lig, make sure you order your tickets early. The Super Lig is the top-flight league in Turkey and consists of eighteen teams. The format is the same as the English Premier League - the club with the most points is crowned champion and the three lowest placed teams are relegated to the 1.Lig with three teams from the 1.Lig gaining promotion to the Super Lig. The league features the best teams and most exciting football in Turkey. So don't miss out, get your Super Lig tickets today, here at StubHub.
Istanbul's Dominance of the Super Lig
Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, is home to the three most successful football clubs in Turkey, also known as the Big Three. They are Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray. Between them, they have won the Turkish championship 54 times (out of 61), with Galatasaray having won twenty, Fenerbahce with nineteen and Besiktas fifteen. None of them has ever been relegated from the Super Lig since its first season in 1959 and only two other clubs have won the league title - Trabzonspor (6) and Bursaspor (1). Last season saw footballing minnows Basaksehir nearly upset the apple cart and have their own 'Leicester City moment' as they pushed eventual winners Beskitas all the way, eventually finishing second. Will this season be the year that we see someone other than the 'Big Three' win the Super Lig? Well, the best way to find out is buying your football tickets and seeing for yourself!
