Galatasaray's new stadium in Istanbul, "Turk Telekom Arena", will be open on Saturday.

Turk Telekom Arena has 52,647 spectators capacity, and it is one of the most technological and authentic sports complexes of Turkey.

Galatasaray and Ajax team will play a friendly game at 8:45 p.m, local time on Saturday.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is expected to attend the inauguration ceremony of the stadium.

Ceremonies at the stadium will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday.

According to Galatasaray President Adnan Polat,the stadium is the only stadium in Turkey to fully satisfy UEFA criteria for hosting the European Football Championship in 2016.

Because of the very limited parking spaces (about 4500 hundred) The club urges fans to use the newly-opened metro line to Seyrantepe in order to avoid causing heavy traffic jams.

One negative thing about this project the roads around the stadium is not completed yet!
