Going to a football game in Istanbul
Has anyone been to a game at any of the big Istanbul clubs?

Going there in September and want to know how safe it is. A few mates have warned me against it.

I'd love to hear of your experiences.

Get a turk to take you. If you can't and you must go, then go to Fenerbache, it has middle-class supporters that aren't going to go mental on a foreigner. Galatasaray should be avoided.

Going to see Zonguldakspor as soon as one of their away games coincides with a trip there.

My Mrs wants to see a Besiktas game, probably go in the autumn.

seen loads of away fans wandering around Istanbul and they don't appear to get any hassle whatsoever, even Fernabache shirts/scarves in Galatasary areas etc...might be different if it's a club they've got a thing for...Besiktas vs Bursaspor etc

Went to a Kasimpasa match a few years back. Some random Turk jumped onto the roof of the away team dug-out and tried to kick his way through, there were bits of the stadium being lobbed about, a couple of small pitch invasions, some bloke had an epileptic fit and there were half-time kebabs.

Quite eventful really.

You do realise that there are some rather hideous circumstances in which ‘turk’ is used as a verb? Might be worth bearing in mind

Went to the Turkey - England game in 2003 at Fenerbahce's ground & the U21 game at Besiktas' ground the night before

Didn't find it any more or less intimidating than anywhere else I've been. Turkish police didn't want to let me in to either game but friendly locals stepped in and argued my case both times
