Trabzonspor Kulübü is a Turkish sports club located in the city of Trabzon. Formed in 1967 through a merger of several local clubs, the men's football team has won eight Süper Lig championships.[1] Trabzonspor also have a women's football team, and used to have a men's basketball team.

Trabzonspor are one of the most decorated clubs in Turkey. They have won seven Süper Lig titles and were the first non Istanbul-based club to win the league.[2] They also have won nine Federation Cup (Turkish Cup) titles. The club won their first championship title in 1975–76, and won three championship titles in a row in the 1978–79, 1979–80 and 1980–81. They would add one more title in 1983-84 before embarking on a 38 year championship drought. This drought eventually came to an end after they secured the championship in 2021-22.

The club colours are claret and sky blue, reflected in the shirt colours that see various striped iterations of the colours. Trabzonspor play at the Şenol Güneş Sports Complex which replaced the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium as their home ground during the 2016–17 season.[3]

History

In 1921 Trabzon İdman Ocağı were founded.[4] Trabzonspor were founded through a merger of several local clubs including İdman Ocağı in 1967.[5]

The club has won the Turkish league on seven occasions in 1975–76, 1976–77, 1978–79, 1979–80, 1980–81, 1983–84, and 2021–22.[1]

In the 2010–11 season Trabzonspor finished runners-up to Fenerbahçe having achieved the same number of points, although Fenerbahçe won the title on goal difference.[6] After the title was given to Fenerbahçe, in the summer of 2011, the season became the subject of a match fixing scandal. On 25 June 2013, UEFA banned Fenerbahçe and Beşiktaş from European competitions over match-fixing.[7] However, in 2021, later stages of the prosecutions confirmed the match-fixing case is a setup against the President and Executives of Fenerbahce S.K. and concluded the verdict is not just and crossing the Turkish Constitution. All legal charges dropped against Fenerbahce S.K.[1]

Crest and colours

Trabzonspor uses the team logo, which has the abbreviation of its name, composed of the letter "TS" in blue with a combined font on a burgundy background.[8]

Although a number of theories have been put forward as to why the club colours of Trabzonspor are claret and blue, it has been claimed that they were adopted after the club were sent a set of kits by the English club Aston Villa after their formation in 1967.[9]
