It is the men's basketball department of Fenerbahçe, a major multisport club. Team plays its home games at its 13,800 seat court Ülker Sports Arena.

History

Fenerbahçe's men's basketball department was founded in 1913 and achieved considerable success when the sport established itself in Turkey. Fenerbahçe won national titles in 1957, 1959 and 1965, just before the Turkish League was founded in 1966, and made it to the Euroleague in 1960 and 1966. Its fans had to wait until 1991 for another title, when Levent Topsakal, Larry Richard and head coach Çetin Yılmaz led Fenerbahçe to the Turkish League title over Tofaş.[1] Fenerbahçe returned to the Euroleague in 1992, but lost in the preliminary round. Fenerbahçe was back in the Turkish League finals in 1992, 1993 and 1995, but could not find a way to win the championship for some time. A third-place finish in the 1997-98 season allowed the club to return to the Euroleague, and with players like Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, Marko Milič, Žan Tabak, İbrahim Kutluay and the late Conrad McRae. Fenerbahçe advanced to the eighthfinal playoffs, losing there to Real Madrid. The club made it to the Korać Cup quarter-finals in 1996 and 2001, as well as finishing fourth 2005 FIBA Europe League. In Summer 2006 the basketball club merged with Ülkerspor to form Fenerbahçe Ülker. After the merger, Fenerbahce dominated the league and became champions two times in a row.[2][3][4] After losing the third final after the merge to Efes Pilsen in a closely contested playoff finals,[5] Fenerbahçe became champions again in the 2009-2010 season this time beating Efes Pilsen in the finals.[6] Fenerbahçe Ülker headed into the 2010–11 season with 5 new transfers: Engin Atsür, Šarūnas Jasikevičius, Marko Tomas, Kaya Peker and Darjuš Lavrinovič. New transfers include Bojan Bogdanović, Curtis Jerrells, James Gist, Hakan Demirel, last Thabo Sefolosha who transferred the after NBA lock out. With head coach Neven Spahija, Fenerbahçe Ülker became champions again.[7] After two disappointing seasons, Željko Obradović was signed as a head coach and the roster strengthened with the likes of former Raptor Linas Kleiza, promising forward Nemanja Bjelica, consistent center Luka Žorić and Turkish hot prospects Kenan Sipahi, Melih Mahmutoğlu. Fenerbahçe Ülker became champions again beating rival Galatasaray in the playoff finals.[8]
