2012 Turkish Super Cup

2012 Turkish Super Cup (Turkish: TFF Süper Kupa) was the 39th edition of the Turkish Super Cup since its establishment as Presidential Cup in 1966. The match was contested between the 2011–12 Süper Lig champions Galatasaray and the 2011–12 Turkish Cup winners Fenerbahçe, making the game the 372nd edition of Kıtalar Arası Derbi. The game was the first to take place since 2010 Turkish Super Cup, as 2011 Turkish Super Cup was cancelled because of 2011 Turkish sports corruption scandal.[3]
