History of Besiktas FC
Founded in 1903 in Istanbul, this Turkish soccer team has gained a rather large following of supporters over their 114 years of playing. What is unique about their home, away and third kits are that they all use the same colour scheme which is black and white with a pop of red.
Across the river from the Istanbul city centre resides Vodafone Park which is the team’s home grounds and seats just under 42K fans. Here you will see spectators wearing the signature monochrome Besiktas home kit.
Since being established in 1903, this Turkish soccer club has accumulated a large amount of trophies. Most of these have been gathered in the Süper Lig, whereby they have achieved an outstanding amount of 15 wins. This league is also where their most recent victory took place.
