History

A Galatasaray home match in 2013 at the Abdi Ipekci Arena

According to the official records, in Turkey, basketball was first played in 1904 at Robert College. An American physical education teacher laid the foundations of this sport in Turkey. 7 years later, Ahmet Robenson, a physical education teacher in Galatasaray High School decided to introduce a new game to students in 1911. Robenson, who also became a Galatasaray S.K. president later, popularized this sport in Turkey.[2][3]

Basketball had always been very important for the club. The team has won 16 national championship titles and 15 ?stanbul League titles. Former president of the club, Özhan Canayd?n was a former player of the basketball team. The team dominated Turkish basketball in the 1940s, and won titles in the 1950s and 1960s, while remaining a competitive team in the 1970s. In the 1980s, Galatasaray won two more championships, in 1985 and 1986, and won the 1990 title. For much of the 1990s and 2000s, Galatasaray struggled. In 2013, Galatasaray won back the Turkish championship.

On 24 June 2011, Galatasaray announced that Cafe Crown's sponsorship was over.[4]

Galatasaray qualified for the EuroLeague for the first time in history after winning the qualification knockout round that gained them a place in the EuroLeague season.[5]

On April 27, 2016, Galatasaray defeated SIG Strasbourg with the score of 78-67 at Abdi Ipekci Arena in the second leg of the 2016 EuroCup Finals. With this result Galatasaray won the EuroCup championship for the first time.[6]
