Trabzonspor (also called Trabzonspor A.Ş.) is a Turkish soccer club located in the city of Trabzon. Formed in 1967 through a merger of several Trabzon-based clubs, the club is nicknamed Bordo-Mavililer (Maroon-Blues) and has won six Süper Lig titles (all in the 1970s and 80s).
Featuring former Schalke 04 midfielder and Turkey international Halil AltÄ±ntop, Trabzonspor finished in third position in last season’s table and has thus earned a spot in the Playoff Round of the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League.
Trabzonspor recently launched its Nike 2012/13 kit collection for its domestic and European campaigns. Football shirt fans may recognize the design of the maroon and blue home jersey as that used for the FC Barcelona 11/12 home kit. The predominantly maroon third jersey features the same design as the Brazil 12/13 home and away shirts.
