History and description

The Vodafone Arena has a capacity of 43,378 spectators. The new stadium of Besiktas, the Vodafone Arena, replaced the old Inonu Stadi. It has a capacity of 43,378 and is modern and well-equipped. In 2004, Inonu Stadi underwent a major renovation. The club explored the possibility of redeveloping or constructing a new arena, but the stadium's protected status as a historical monument delayed the plans. Finally, in 2013, the go ahead was given for a new stadium, leaving only the protected facade in place.

Construction of the new Vodafone Arena took three years, and on 10 April 2016 it officially opened with a ceremony. The first match was played the following day, a league match between Besiktas and Bursaspor (3-2).

In December 2016, two bombs exploded outside of the stadium after a Besiktas game, killing 38 people and injuring over 80 others.
