Istanbul Soccer Question...

I will be in Istanbul from February 6th to the 13th and was interested in catching a soccer match while I was there. I noticed that all 3 local teams have home matches on Sunday February 7th and I was curious which of these stadiums was:

1. Closest to my hotel location in Sultanahmet

2. Easy to obtain tickets to

3. The most desirable squad to watch

The stadiums and teams are as follows:

1. Besiktas @ Inonu Stadi

2. Fenerbache @ Sukru Saracoglu Sadyumu

3. Istanbul BB @ Ataturk Olympiyat Stadi

Also, if anybody could give me a general idea as to how much a single ticket in a center pitch section would cost, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Now when you say you collected the tickets from the bookshop, do you mean that you placed the order via bilatix and were provided the option to pick them up at that location, or, did you provide that location's address and then pick the tickets up there after? I apologize for having so many questions. It is just important to me that I understand the process prior to actually placing an order via www.bilatix.com. Thanks!

Hi ic100m,

You can buy your tickets at "www.biletix.com" and choose the option of ticket pick-up at retail outlets. You can get your tickets then at any of the retail outlets convenient to you at least ONE DAY before the event. Here are the necessary links: "http://www.biletix.com/help.htm?id=20", and "http://www.biletix.com/static.htm?page=sp4", "http://www.biletix.com/help.htm".

good luck,

Hello!

Besiktas is the closest. It's better to purchase tickets on the day when they become available for sale. You can buy them at "Biletix" (kiosks).

Good luck!

Well, I will be arriving in Istanbul early Saturday evening, and it appears the match(es) will be played on Sunday. Enigma gave a great option in picking up the tickets 24 hours in advance, but, in the off chance that my flight is delayed and I am unable to get to a ticket kiosk prior to that point, is there any option where I can buy tickets via biletix and pick them up on the day of the match?

Hi ic100m,

When you arrive, go to Taksim (you can take a HAVAS bus from Airport) and walk down Istiklal street and at No. 55 there is Istiklal Bookstore, which is open till 10.00 PM. Get your tickets from there. Here is the address again:

Beyoğlu İstiklal Kitabevi

Every day of the week open 10:00 - 22:00

İstiklal Caddesi No: 55 Beyoğlu / İstanbul

In case your plane is seriously delayed, you can get your tickets 2 hours before the event at the venue ticket box office. Here is the link once again:

good luck,
