This chapter provides a transaction cost economics explanation for the attempted reshaping of the Turkish Football landscape under the AK Party. The discussion details the steps that Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his political party took to provide a governance solution to Turkey’s football clubs before and after 2013, as part of reshaping the sport in line with New Turkey values – a Turkey where citizens are more conservative, more openly pious, and less secular. The chapter explores the extent to which Erdogan has been able to use sporting success on the football pitch as a proxy for the success of his regime.
