Süper Lig


Süper Lig

The clubs below were relegated to the TFF First League at the end of the 2007-08 season.

Beşiktaş have formally requested that championships won in the 1956/57 and 1957/58 versions of the Turkish Federation Cup to be counted as Turkish Professional First Division championships. The Turkish Football Federation's ruling on this matter was announced in a press release on March 25, 2002. The press release indicated that the championships won by Beşiktaş in the Turkish Federation Cup will be considered as national championships but the Turkish Federation Cup can not be considered as the precursor to the Turkish Professional First Division (later named Süper Lig) and as such these titles can not be categorized as a Turkish Professional First Division championships. [cite web|url = http://turkfutbolu.net/turkiyekupalari/turkiyefederasyonkupasi_TFF.html|title = TFF Basın Bülteni]

The Turkish Football Federation permits clubs to place a golden star above their crest on their uniforms for every five national championships won. For the purposes of calculating national championships, the Turkish Football Federation ruled that Beşiktaş has two additional national championships due to their success in the Turkish Federation Cup during the 1956/57 and 1957/58 seasons. [cite web|url = http://turkfutbolu.net/turkiyekupalari/turkiyefederasyonkupasi_TFF.html|title = TFF Basın Bülteni] For the 2008/09 season Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray are permitted three golden stars, Beşiktaş are permitted two golden stars and Trabzonspor are permitted one golden star to be placed above their crest on their uniforms.
