İstanbul Başakşehir Futbol Kulübü (better known as İstanbul Başakşehir or, due to sponsorship, Medipol Başakşehir) is a Turkish professional football club based in the Başakşehir district of Istanbul and playing in the Süper Lig. The club was founded in 1990 as ISKI SK, and they were owned by the municipality's water distribution company. ISKI SK competed in the Regional Amateur Football League in the 1990–91 season and were promoted to the TFF Second League. After promotion, the club's name changed to İstanbul Büyüksehir Belediyesi.
In 2014, the club was bought by new owners with alleged ties to the ruling Justice and Development Party. Its name was changed in June 2014 to İstanbul Başakşehir Futbol Kulübü. In 2020, Başakşehir were crowned champions of the Turkish Süper Lig for the first time in the club's history. They also became only the sixth club in the competition's history to win the league title and the fourth club from Istanbul to do so. İstanbul Başakşehir's rivals include Fenerbahçe, İstanbul Güngörenspor, Galatasaray, Trabzonspor, Istanbulspor AŞ and Beşiktaş. They play their home games at the Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium.
