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 six Süper Lig championship titles.

The Club won their first Championship title in 1975–76, and won three championship titles in a row during the following years 1978–79, 1979–80, 1980–81. They won their most recent championship title in the 1983-84 season.

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.[7]


Since December 2016, Home ground is the Şenol Güneş Stadium, which has a capacity of 41,461.[8] Former home ground is the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium, which has a capacity of 24,169.[9]
