ScandalEdit

The team finished the Turkish Women's 1999-2000 League season at top place.[5] Upon the request of Delta Mobilyaspor, which finished the season at second place, the Turkish Football Federation launched an investigation into a possible foul play, and determined that the team and Gemlik Zeytinspor have match-fixed. The Federation ruled that both teams were to be relegated to one lower league. As there existed no Women's Second League at that time, both teams were barred from playing for the period of one year. Players of both teams were allowed to transfer to other clubs.[4]
