Cebrahim, Somehow the timing does not sound right, but if it is at 5.00 PM then, by 7.00 PM the game will be over and you will surely catch your flight (from Ataturk airport?). There are no trains. However from Fenerbahce Stadium you can walk to Kadikoy (15 minutes) and take the IDO seabus to Bakirkoy from Kadikoy either at 19.50 or 20.50. From Bakirkoy you can take a taxi for a very short ride to Ataturk Airport. Either way you will be on time for your flight.

The tickets will be sold at Biletix website, "www.biletix.com/category/SPORT/TURKIYE/en", about two weeks before the game. You have to follow this website very closely because of very high demand on these tickets.

good luck,

Timing does not sound right to me either. if it is right, then you can make it. If it is a night game I don't think you can make it to your flight on time. You'll need to be at the airport two hours before your flight meaning 10:30pm and it seems impossible.

If you tell us when the game is, we can guide you better.
