Description

Ali Sami Yen was the former stadium of Galatasaray SK. The stadium was particularly famous for its often intimidating atmosphere. Galatasaray had chosen the site for their new stadium as early as 1933, but due to World War II, construction didn't start until the early 40s. By that time, financial limitations prevented resuming the project and instead only a small grandstand was built. The stadium remained unused until the 1960s, when it was used only as a training ground by Galatasaray.

Construction of a proper stadium started in 1959 and was completed in 1964. The stadium officially opened on December 20th with a match between the Turkish and Bulgarian national teams. However, the occasion ended dramatically when panic broke out at the overcrowded stands, one person died and 80 more got hurt.

In 1972, Galatasaray left the stadium due to pitch problems and played its home matches at Be?ikta?? Inönü Stadi instead. The Ali Sami Yen was neglected afterwards and it took until 1980 for the club to return to the stadium.

The record attendance of the stadium was set in 1987 during a match between Galatasaray and Eski?ehirspor. A total of 35,845 people attended the match.

Since 1993, the Ali Sami Yen has been able to accommodate approximately 35,000 people, however this number has been drastically reduced with the conversion of the stadium into an all-seater. Plans were made in 1997 to demolish the Ali Sami Yen and replace it with a new stadium, but due to a lack of funding these plans never came to fruition.

A few years later, an earthquake heavily damaged the Main Stand. This was rebuilt a few years later, but then FIFA required renovations, which caused the capacity to drop again to about 22,800 seats.

A new stadium was finally approved for construction in 2007 after years of trying, and construction on the Türk Telekom Arena finished in January 2011. Galatasaray left the Ali Sami Yen after the stadium was completed.

The demolition of the Ali Sami Yen Stadium started in April of 2011. After reports came out that the stadium was on the verge of collapse, and that, according to the company in charge of demolition, only a miracle had prevented it from collapsing and causing casualties, the demolition proceeded.

A friend of mine had been there a couple of weeks before and told me he had tickets to see Galatasaray play at the Ali Sami Yen. I was scheduled to be in Istanbul on business so I took them off his hands. The opponent that day has long left the memory bank, but I remember the Turkish fans being very helpful to this non-Turkish speaker and making my experience very pleasant. I make an annual trip to Istanbul to see Galatasaray play, and their fans have never let me down.

I went to see Galatasaray play at the Ali Sami Yen in 1999. A friend of mine had been there a couple of weeks before and told me they had tickets for me to see them, but he couldn't use them because he was scheduled to be in Istanbul on business. I took them off his hands and went to see them play.

The opponent that day has long since left the memory bank, but I remember the Turkish fans to be very helpful to this non-Turkish speaker and they made my experience very pleasant. I make an annual trip to Istanbul to see Galatasaray play and their fans have never let me down.
