After Galatasaray's great victory over schalke 04 there is a possibility that the home leg of their champions league quarter final will fall in the week of my visit to Istanbul. If this does happen I'd love to go and experience the world renowned turkish football atmosphere! Therefore I have a couple of questions

- When are tickets likely to be released?

- What's the best route for me to get the tickets? Is it online or even contacting my hotel?

I've also seen on the Galatasaray ticket website that they are to soon offer stadium tours. Does anyone know anything about this or any other potential football tours in Istanbul (Fenerbahce or Besiktas)?

Teşekkür ederim!

1. Re: Galatasaray

TheBigRF, welcome to Istanbul.

Galtasaray tickets are not sold unfortunately through Biletix but only from their own website which is user unfriendly and entirely in Turkish: "www.galatasaray.org". They first sell to their GS cardholders and then to public."https:/…home.aspx". You can try and see if you can buy the tickets from Tur-ista travel agency (with commissions of course), "http://www.tur-ista.com/", or contact your hotel management and see if they can do it for you. You can reimburse them by credit card.

The final matching of teams will be made today, but it is highly likely that FC Barcelona will be playing with GS. This game will be very much in demand and will be very difficult to get tickets for.

good luck,


Istanbul, Turkey

Most of seats are occupied by seasonal card owners and only few thousand seats will be sold starting from card holders and most probably nothing will be left for public sale. Balck market or visitor team area can be an option.
