History

A Galatasaray home match in 2013 at the Abdi Ipekci Arena

According to the official records, in Turkey, basketball was first played in 1904 at Robert College. An American physical education teacher laid the foundations of this sport in Turkey. 7 years later, Ahmet Robenson, a physical education teacher in Galatasaray High School decided to introduce a new game to students in 1911. Robenson, who also became a Galatasaray S.K. president later, popularized this sport in Turkey.[2][3]

Basketball had always been very important for the club. The team has won 4 national championship titles and 16 İstanbul League title. Former president of the club, Özhan Canaydın was a former player of basketball team.

On 24 June 2011, Galatasaray announced that Cafe Crown's sponsorship was over.[4]

Galatasaray qualified for the EuroLeague for the first time in history after winning the qualification knockout round that gained them a place in the EuroLeague season.[5]

On April 27, 2016, Galatasaray defeated SIG Strasbourg with the score of 78–67 at Abdi Ipekci Arena in the second leg of the 2016 EuroCup Finals. With this result Galatasaray won the EuroCup championship for the first time.[6]
