Aydınspor are one of those nebulous Turkish sports clubs that covers every game under the sun, plus has a half decent football team. They formed in 1966, and spent most of their career in the second tier of Turkish football. They had a brief three-season stint in the top flight in the early 1990s before their fortuned took a dive and they found themselves back in the amateur leagues for a season in 2009. However, they've dragged themselves back on their feet, and are now back in the third league and challenging for a return to the division that looked after them for some 36 years.
Aydın, a city known as Anthea to the ancient Greeks, where it was one of the largest cities in antiquity, Tralles to the Romans and Byzantines and Güzelhisar to the Turks of the Middle Ages. It's a big agricultural town that is also famous for another, slightly unlikely sport - camel wrestling!
