The home of the Turkish national team, the Atatürk Olympic Stadium is the country's largest stadium, and famously staged the 2005 UEFA Champions League decider, when Liverpool came from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties.
Named in honour of Kemal Atatürk, founder of the Republic of Turkey, the venue was opened in 2002 and has held major athletics events – and a U2 concert – as well as being a home for Istanbul clubs Galatasaray (2003/04), İstanbul Başakşehir (2007–14) and Beşiktaş (2013–16).
