One of the most successful football clubs from Turkey, Beşiktaş J.K. has been a dominant force since the foundation of the Turkish Super Lig. While the football club was founded in 1903, it spent much of its early years playing in local tournaments. The team was quick to rise to prominence and assert its dominance, not only locally, but also nationally. By the mid 1930s it had gained recognition as one of the top teams in the country and soon the trophies started flowing in. Its trophy cabinet boasts a number of major honors, including numerous Turkish Super Leagues, Turkish Cups and Turkish Super Cups. It is also the only team to have won the league while remaining undefeated.
