Artificial-Turf Football Fields

Only very few Turkish men have a professional interest in football; most of them are fans and support their favorite teams with great devotion at the stadium or in front of the TV. There are some who play soccer as a hobby and rent artificial-turf football fields on all occasions.

Therefore, you may meet people playing football on illuminated artificial-turf football fields at midnight or at down. The jury of the daily newspaper "Hürriyet", who are football fans, journalists and sports authorities, have chosen the top 10 rug-covered football fields in Turkey in 2004.
