The Turkish Women's First Football League (Turkish: Kadınlar 1. Futbol Ligi) is the top level women's football league of Turkey. Eight teams play a double round robin to decide a champion, which qualifies for a spot in the UEFA Women's Champions League.

The league gains little attention in Turkey, and most matches are watched only by relatives of the team's players.[1] Fashion One TV became the official media sponsor of the league for the 2010–11 season.[2]


In an effort to increase quality of the league, in the 2009-10 season two teams were relegated and four teams were promoted to the first league. Thus, the 2010-11 season consisted of twelve teams.[3] After playing two groups with six teams and then having a championship and relegation group, the 2012–13 season was played as a double-round robin with ten teams again. The winner after 18 games is the champion and qualifies for the UEFA Women's Champions League, the bottom two teams get relegated.

At the end of the 2013–14 season, the Women's Second League teams İlkadım Belediyespor (Samsun), Beden Eğitimi ve Spor (Izmir), Eskişehirspor (Eskişehir) and Gazikentspor (Gaziantep) were promoted to the Women's First League after winning the play-offs.[4]

2013–14 season

Two teams, Çamlıcaspor and Lüleburgaz 39 Spor, sent written notification to the Turkish Football Federation about their withdrawal from the Women's League prior to the beginning of the league season. İzmit Çenesuyu Plajyoluspor did their withdrawal notification in verbal form. The players of the folded clubs were transferred by mostly other First-League clubs.[5]

Marmara Üniversitesi Spor transferred the players Ebru Gelirli, Başak Gündoğdu, Emine Ecem Esen and Dilan Erkul from Çamlıcaspor. Elif Ataol and Fatma Ataş of Çamlıcaspor joined Trabzon İdmanocağı. Other players of Çamlıcaspor, who were transferred by other clubs, were Gizem Gönültaş by Adana İdmanyurduspor and Ayça Özkök by Akdeniz Nurçelik Spor.[5]

Ataşehir Belediyespor transferred Ebru Aydın and Mevlüde Öztürk from Lüleburgaz 39 Spor. Ebru Bayraktar and Sevilay Ankıt of Lüleburgaz 39 Spor joined Erbaa İhtisas. Evren Yılmaz from Lüleburgaz 39 Spor returned to her former club Kdz. Ereğlispor. Konak Belediyespor transferred Eylül Elgalp, and Adana İdmanyurduspor the other Lüleburgaz 39 Spor player Gözde Gül.[5]

The two other women's football clubs of Kocaeli shared the players of İzmit Çenesuyu Plajyoluspor. Ayşe Taslak, Beritan Gedik, Betül Öztürk, Büşra Adamol, Kübra Yavuz, Serra Çağan, Şule Mutlucan, Çiçek Bursalı and Nesrin Çelikdemir joined Karşıyaka Koleji Spor. Derince Belediyespor transferred from İzmit Çenesuyu Plajyoluspor Ayşen Eylem Şiner, Buse Güngör, Ecem Cebeci and Serenay Öziri. Gözde Sungur went to Kfz. ereğlispor.[5]

2014–15 season

Four teams including Eskişehirspor, Gazikentspor, İlkadım Belediyesi Yabancılar Pazarı Spor and Karşıyaka BESEM Spor were promoted from the Women's Second League while two teams, İzmit Çenesuyu Plajyoluspor and Marmara Üniversitesi Spor, ceased their sports activities.
