Beşiktaş to play next two home matches in Istanbul

Updated: March 18, 2015

Beşiktaş will play their upcoming two home matches at the ground of Başakşehir SK in the Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium.

After the Kayseri Erciyesspor match Mete Vardar, boardmember in Charge of Beşiktaş’ senior football team, announced that the home matches against Başakşehir SK and Kardemir Karabükspor will be played at the Başakşehir stadium in Istanbul. The team has already played two home matches earlier this season at the Başakşehir stadium against Kasimpasa (3-0) and Akhisar Bld. spor (3-1). The stadium has a capacity of 17,319.

The importance of playing these matches in Istanbul will become more clear if we take a look at Beşiktaş’ upcoming four match schedule:

Fenerbahçe (A)
Başakşehir (H)
Kasımpaşa (A)
Kardemir Karabükspor (H)

This basically means that the team will play their next four league matches in Istanbul. Hopefully this will Limit fatigue gain caused by traveling and have a positive effect on the teams’ fitness for the final games of the season.
