Trabzonspor is a professional Turkish football club located in the city of Trabzon, Turkey. Formed in 1967 through a merger of several local clubs, Trabzonspor have won seven Süper Lig championship titles. The Club won their first Championship title in 1975 which is also the Club's inaugural year in the Süper Lig. Trabzonspor won the championship title again during their second year in the league in 1976, finished runners-up in 1977 and won 3 Championship titles in a row during the following years 1978, 1979, 1980. The last one is achieved in 2011.


The club colours are claret and blue, and they have maroon and blue kits. Trabzonspor plays at the Şenol Güneş Stadium which replaced the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium as their home ground in the middle of the 2016-17 season.


In 1921 the İdmanocağı club were founded. Trabzonspor AS were founded in 1967.

In 1975–76 season they won their first championship, and won further titles in 1976–77,1978–79,1979–80, 1980–81 and 1983–84.

In the 2010–11 season Trabzonspor finished level on points to winners Fenerbahçe but were pushed into second on goal difference.

Colours and emblem

The most important issue in the establishment of Trabzonspor was the colors of the club. Although a number of elaborate theories have been put forward as to why claret and blue was adopted, it transpires the club chose the colors in simple tribute to the famous and historic English club Aston Villa.

Irish club Drogheda United shares the same symbols and colours, and both clubs recently declared to be brothers. These were given in favor of the Ottoman Empire's great assistance during the Irish famine.


Since December 2016, Home ground is the Şenol Güneş Stadium, which has a capacity of 41,513.

Former home ground is the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium, which has a capacity of 24,169.
