Adana Demirspor

Adana Demirspor is a sports club based in Adana, Turkey. Founded by railway workers in 1940, the club were competitive in eight sports until 1980s; since then active only with the football department, which currently competes in the TFF First League. Football team’s thriving success at the Adana League and the water polo team’s unbeaten National League titles in the first three decades, built a large worker fan base in the city and attracted landowners to finance the club. Believing that the worker supported, landowner financed, TCDD governed club are alienating them, middle-class merchants and artisans founded Adanaspor in 1954 and competition among the two clubs for the citywide support and domination, created one of the fierce rivalries of Turkish football which continues to this day as Adana derby.
