Capacity: 63,000 (45,000 are seated)

This is how the stadium looks at the moment.


(pretty bad imo)

There are plans though to increase the seated capacity and to cover the entire stadium with a roof.

This pic shows shows an example of how the stadium can look like with a roof.

I'm all for the renovation, but only if Karsiyaka promotes..

Their the only Izmir team who can get a decent crowd in there :groan:

Such a huge city, beautiful city... But they can't bring out a decent team...
Maybe if one of the smaller teams in Izmir promotes, they'll have the support of a whole city behind them?

Well, they have many decent teams like Göztepe, Altay and Karsiyaka.....maybe they should join and create a strong Izmir team instead....:eek:

That's the thing though..
Those 3 teams in particular are like Izmir's FB, GS & BJK... If one of them had a top year, and even won the league, then the other 2 would improve with them...

BTW, Karsiyaka holds the 2nd and 3rd spots in the highest attendance for a league match..
About 69,000 for 2nd spot, and 67,000 for 3rd spot.. The record is held by GS, and stands at 71,000..
The opponent in all 3 games was none other than FENERBAHÇE :D

En buyuk Goz-goz.
They even mounted a championship run in the Turkish first league in the 70's.
Altay is also known because it played in the first league for a while.
KSK has no success at that level.


In fact, please don't call KSK an Izmir team.

renkleride cok kotu zaten o takimin :D

1970-71, they finished 3rd with 37 points..

But then...
1971-72, 9th...
1972-73, 8th...
1973-74, 13th...
1974-75, 14th...
1975-76, 14th...
1976-77, 15th and relegated!

Anyway, Karsiyaka has the best fans in Izmir... The most passionate :cool:

It's probably true, but it's a 2nd division match...
The records I got where first division records..

BTW, if KSY - Göztepe can fit 80,000 into the Olympic stadium, why wasn't Fener allowed to squeeze in more people for the Gençler match? :groan:
We had 69,000 (oops, there we go... Fener holds 1, and assists 3 records now :D), with thousands more waiting outside..
