Who We Are?

Our Mission

100 Basketballers in Kreuzberg

Türkyiemspor Berlin stands for participation and openness, nobody is excluded! Since women and girls are under-represented in all areas of basketball (players, coaches, referees, board members), we see this as our first focus. We are a community where men support women and women support men.

In addition to an existing U12w team, the goal is to build up a sub14 girls, as well as a sub16 girls and a second women’s team. From 2020, we would like to train our own players as coaches and referees.




Türkiyemspor Berlin e.V., founded 1978 in Berlin-Kreuzberg, is the biggest Sports club in Germany that was founded by migrants. In addition to the adult football department, which includes four men’s and three women’s teams, the club is very active in youth development. In the 2018/2019 season, nearly 400 boys and girls are playing at Türkiyemspor. The club is regarded as a flagship of the Turkish community of Berlin and the multicultural district of Kreuzberg. Beyond sports activities, Türkiyemspor is committed to social and intercultural exchange. For this, the club has received several awards. One notable example is the Integration Award (2007) of the German Football Association (DFB).
