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.[2]

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.

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 during the 2016–17 season.[3]

Colours and emblem

The most important issue in the establishment of Trabzonspor was the colours 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 colours in simple tribute to the famous and historic English club Aston Villa.[8]


Since December 2016, Home ground is the Şenol Güneş Stadium, which has a capacity of 43,223.[9] Former home ground is the Hüseyin Avni Aker Stadium, which has a capacity of 24,169.[9]
