I was thinking about a theme for my term project, and when I realized that i can write about my favourite team, I got excited.This would make fun.But I had a problem, how would i find information?I looked at the encyclopedias,there weren’t a lot in them. Then I had an idea.My father’s favourite team was Trabzonspor too and he interests in football more than me.I asked him but of course he couldn’t give me enough information for a term project.I needed something special.So I searched in the internet sites about Trabzonspor and find two big sites.Besides i found a brochure about Trabzonspor too, and it was very helpful.So I did it. I learned a lot of from this project, and i think everbody should know something about his favourite teams.As a result this term project was very useful for me.Now I can say a lot about my team especially the victories.
Football was first played in Trabzon during the Balkan Wars.Football was popular in this short time. This was intervened by the first world war. The Idmanocagi Sports Club was founded in Trabzon on 20th January 1921, followed soon,afterwards by another sports club called the Idman Group founded on l0th February 1921.
These two clubs were of prime importance in spreading football’s popularity in the area. The first official match was played between these two clubs:Idmanocagi won 3-0.
Idmanocagi and the Idman Group were followed by the Teacher’s Training College and the Industrial College, and in September 1921 established its first official league. Idmanocagi won the title of first champions of Trabzon. In the 1921-22 season these clubs established a league for their B teams, Idmanocagi won this championship too.
In 1927 the Russians, with a team called the Caucasian Group, including the famous player Ciciko, were invited to Trabzon and won the first match they played against Trabzon High School 7-1. The second match was played against Idmanocagi – Trabzon High School Group and Trabzon Group won
2-1. The matches were played at the Kavakmeydani pitch.
Apart from Trabzonspor, members of Trabzon’s amateur teams have won the Turkish Amateur Football Campionship five times.Idmanocagı three times once the Sebat Youth (now Akcaabat Sebatspor) once the Youth Union (Genclerbirligi).
Today there are five professional clubs in Trabzon – first and popularst our world famous Trabzonspor. There are also 106 amateur clubs – of which 99 are football clubs.
History of Trabzonspor Today Trabzonspor is one of the top sport’s clubs in Turkey.It wasn’t easy to come to this place.
The club was founded in two stages. The first of these was led by the Idmangucu club on 21 st June 1966; followed by Karadenizgucu, Martispor.In this time the colors were red and white.
However because Trabzon’s oldest sports club Idmanocagi had not taken part in all this for several reasons Trabzonspor was not completely accepted by the town.
After long debates, Trabzonspor which had finished the season in the second division was closed down on a court of appeal demand won by Idmanocagi.
Today’s Trabzonspor was founded on 2nd August 1967 under the colors of dark red and blue.
Trabzonspor stayed in the Turkish second division until 1973-74. After that season Trabzonspor was champion of the second division’s red group, and moved up to the first division.
In the 1975-76 season Trabzonspor won a great victory :It won the Turkish first division championship, which was only for the three teams in Istanbul.
Trabzon’s victory surprised all Turkey. But authorities started said that Trabzonspor’s success was a chance meeting and that they could never be champions again.
Trabzonspor’s second championship in the third year in the first division surprised the people again,but they started to realize the truth.
Three championships in a row -1978-79,1979-80 and 1980-81 proved that Trabzonspor’s success was long-lasting.
Trabzonspor became champion yet again after that; while Istanbul’s’ big’teams Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas were struggling to stay in the first division, Trabzonspor proved to all what a good team it was by permanently staying at the top of the league table.
Apart from six first division championships, Trabzonspór won the ‘President’s Cup’ six times, the Turkey Cup’ four times and the ‘Prime Minister’s Cup’ also four times these cups.
Another of Trabzonspor’s victorys; is that it has beaten world famous teams like Liverpool, Inter and Barcelona at its 27.500 capacity Huseyin Avni Aker Stadium.
Trabzonspor is one of the successfullest Turkish teams which represent Turkey in the European Cups. Apart from it’s professional ‘A’ team, Trabzonspor includes ten teams with five trainers and two hundred football players. It is one of the first clubs in Turkey to have its own modern buildings and facilities.
