Galatasaray Stats & History
Students of Galatasaray High School in Istanbul founded Galatasaray SK in 1905. They quickly joined the Istanbul Football League, although no other Turkish soccer teams were in the league during that time. Due to the strict Ottoman rule, the rest of the teams consisted of English and Greek teams. Regardless, Galatasaray won the 1908-09 Istanbul Football League season championship.
With more Turkish soccer teams in the league, they added ten more Istanbul Football League titles to the Galatasaray SK stats until 1952. The Istanbul Professional League bridged the gap between the end of the amateur Istanbul Football League and the professional Turkish league. Galatasaray won three of the seven Istanbul Professional League championships from 1952 to 1959.
Galatasaray became a founding member of what’s now known as the Turkish Super Lig, in 1959. They finished second in their first Super Lig season and first won the title in 1961-62. The next season, Galatasaray repeated as champions and won their first Turkish Cup title. That kicked off a run of four consecutive Turkish Cups in the Galatasaray SK stats. They also made the quarterfinals of the European Cup in 1962-63.
