Fethiyespor Fixtures & Results For The 2016-17 Season
Welcome to our 2016-17 Fethiyespor Fixtures & Results page…
The table below shows Fethiyespor’s fixtures and results for the 2016-17 season which we hope you’ll find useful as the season progresses. As we fill in results from September onwards, you’ll also be able to see our Fethiyespor league table positions.
To those not very familiar with football in Turkey, especially in the lower leagues, the setup can seem a bit complicated (it confused us no end when we used to ask friends about Fethiyespor a few years ago) but it’s actually all very simple.
Below, we’ve given you a few snippets of useful information and we’ve taken the map below from our friends’ Facebook page, Fethiyespor 1933.
Spor Toto 2nd League – White Group
For the 2016-17 season, the Spor Toto 2nd League (2. Lig) has a total of 36 teams. This is a lot of teams so the league is split into two separate groups: White Group (Beyaz Grup) and Red Group (Kırmızı Grup), with 18 teams in each group.
In June 2016, a draw took place in Istanbul to decide which teams will play in which group. This is always a time of much anticipation and discussion; waiting to see if, on paper, it’s going to be a tough season ahead or an easy ride. Well, Fethiyespor are in the White Group for the 2016-17 season and we’ve heard mixed reaction as to whether we are in a tough group or not. Some say it’s tough; others say Fethiyespor will make the play-offs for promotion.
2016-17 Fethiyespor Fixtures – Spor Toto 2nd League White Group Teams
Here are all the teams that Fethiyespor will be playing throughout the 2016-17 season. We always like to see where the opposition is based just in case we fancy going to any way matches. As you can see, the opposing teams are dotted all over Turkey with a small concentration in the Istanbul area.
Fethiyespor’s first match of the season is at home against Fatih Karagümrük A.Ş. on 3rd September 2016. They’re one of the Istanbul-based teams and finished in 14th place in the Red Group in the 2015-16 season. Fethiyespor finished the 2015-16 season in 10th position in the White Group.
Fethiyespor Fixtures 2016-17 – How The Season Is Organised
The Turkish football season is all arranged in very logical fashion. Obviously, the odd postponed match here and there can temporarily jiggle this up in places but it all works out well in the end.
- The season is divided into two halves and 34 weeks.
- The first half of the season – Week 1 to Week 17 – runs from September 3rd 2016 to 18th December 2016.
- The second half of the season – Week 18 to Week 34 – runs from 15th January 2017 to 30th April 2017.
- The first and second halves of the season are mirror images of each other except home and away matches are reversed. So, for the Fethiyespor fixtures, the first match of the season (3rd September) is at home to Fatih Karagümrük A.Ş. That means Fethiyespor’s first match of the second half of the season is against Fatih Karagümrük A.Ş, but this time, Fethiyespor are away. You get the drift…

In Sport Toto 2nd League most matches are played at weekends, on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. There are a few exceptions where the odd midweek game will be played, still in the afternoon and, occasionally, there are evening kickoffs, too. For Fethiyespor’s fixtures, their first few home games are often at night because of the summer heat.

If you’re a sports fan, you’ll know matches can get postponed due to bad weather, cup matches and international matches. All the dates in the fixtures list are as things stand right now. If we find out about any alterations to the fixture list, we’ll change it accordingly.
Here’s to a successful run for Fethiyespor in the 2016-17 season and we hope you can get to the stadium for a match sometime if you’re in Fethiye on match day!
