Flag of Mersin İdman Yurdu - Image by Ivan Sache, 13 March 2016
Mersin İdman Yurdu Sport Kulübü was founded in 1925 to give the youth of the town of Mersin a chance to excel in sport during the long, hot summers the region experiences. With the summer holidays being three months long it gave students plenty of time to focus efforts on developing their sporting endeavors. The club went on to become widely respected across Mersin and their football team developed a loyal local following.
Mersin Idman Yurdu enjoyed a brief spell in the first division during the mid 1970s. The clubs biggest success was coming runner up in the 1982-83 Turkish Cup final. Unfortunately, they were relegated the same season and spent the next 29 years in the lower leagues before finally achieving promotion to the Turkish Super League.
