Turkish Amateur Football Championship

The Turkish Amateur Football Championship or Turkish Amateur Teams Championship (Turkish: Türkiye Amatör Futbol Şampiyonası) was a former amateur football championship in Turkey. It was organised by the Turkish Football Federation. The championship format was based on a knockout competition. It was held from 1952 to 1996. After 1951, when the former top-level Turkish Football Championship was folded, this competition succeeded it, being no longer the first tier championship in Turkey with only amateur teams as participants.
