Due to the outlying location of the stadium we highly recommend that all supporters take advantage of the complimentary coaches being operated by the club between the centre of Old Town Istanbul and the Ataturk Olimpic Stadium.

The Ataturk Olimpic Stadium is located approximately 30km from the centre of Old Town Istanbul.

Pick Up/Drop Off Point: Sultanahmet, at the entrance of Hagia Sophia.

Pick Up Time: meeting from 17:00, with Police escorting the coaches at 17:30 - all coaches must leave together and the expected journey time is approximately 90 minutes.

Supporters are advised if they do not take up these complimentary coaches, travel to and from the stadium will be extremely difficult. Please note the local Police advise supporters against travelling on public transport.

Further information for supporters travelling to Turkey can be found in the Away Supporters Guide which will be emailed to all match ticket holders over the weekend.
