Fenerbahce’s Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium was filled to the rafters with supporters for their midweek clash with Manisaspor.
But their was one major difference in the backdrop for this game – no men were in the stadium.
History was made in Turkey on Tuesday night when only women and children were allowed to attend the match in Istanbul.
It was the latest attempt by the Turkish football federation to curb increasing crowd violence.
Under the new rules only women and children under the age of 12 will be admitted to games involving teams sanctioned for unruly fan behaviour replacing the punishment of playing behind closed doors.
Fenerbahce were originally sanctioned when their fans stormed the pitch during a pre-season friendly against Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk.
