Galatasaray Spor Kulübü (Galatasaray SK or Galatasaray Sports Club) is the largest Turkish sports club, based in Istanbul. The club was founded on 14 October 1905 by Ali Sami Yen and his colleagues from the prestigious Lycée de Galatasaray (in Turkish: Galatasaray Lisesi). Galatasaray have won 22 Turkish Championships and 18 Turkish Cups, also 16 Turkish Supercups, also won the 1999-00 UEFA Cup and the 2000 UEFA Supercup, totaling 58 significant titles.

It has one of the most fanatical fans in the world, known for its intimidating atmosphere, especially the ultras in its matches as a principal, and holds the record for the highest number of decibels per crowd noise in a stadium in the world, in a Champions League match against Manchester United.

Although the Turkish Football Association was founded in 1923, it was only in the 1959-60 season that the Turkish championship began to be played. Galatasaray won its first title in 1961-62, also winning the next championship as well as the Turkish Cup. It was not until 1969 that Galatasaray triumphed again in the championship and at that time the top scorer Metin Oktay, who six times was the best Turkish scorer, shone in the team.

In the 1970s, the club became the first in Turkey to win the championship three times in a row, and that was between 1971 and 1973. However, since that season the club has not won any titles for fourteen years. Only in 1987, under the guidance of German coach Jupp Derwall, did Galatasaray return to winning the championship.

Between 1996-97 and 1999-00 Galatasaray won four consecutive championships, breaking their own record, being coached by Fatih Terim, who had represented the team as a player between 1970 and 1983. The club again won the Turkish championship in 2002 and 2006.

The highlight of Galatasaray’s history came in the 1999/2000 season when they won the UEFA Cup, Europe’s second most important club competition. In the final, the Turks beat Arsenal of England in a penalty shoot-out (4-1) after a draw (0-0) in regulation time. The team coached by Fatih Terim featured players such as Brazilians Claudio Taffarel and Capone, Romanians Gheorghe Popescu and Gheorghe Hagi, Turkish defender Bülent Korkmaz and Turkish goalkeeper Hakan Şükür.

At the beginning of the 2000/01 season, Galatasaray won the European Super Cup, beating European champions Real Madrid by 2-1, with two goals from the Brazilian Mário Jardel, who had transferred from FC Porto.

In the 2002/03 and 2003/04 seasons the Portuguese international Abel Xavier joined the Turkish team, together with César Prates (Brazilian defender hired by Sporting), Hakan Şükür and the Dutch Frank de Boer.
