Konyaspor supporters regard Osmanlispor FK and Sivasspor as their main rivals, though neither of these rivalries is very fierce, at least not when compared to others in Turkey. The one with Sivasspor is at the moment more talked about due to both teams being in the Super Lig, while Osmanlispor currently competes in the TFF 1. Lig.
The club was formed in 1922 under the name of Konya Genclerbirligi, and only became Konyaspor in 1965 when they merged with three other clubs – Meramspor, Selcukspor and Cimentospor. They joined the first ever Turkish Football Championship in 1924 as the regional Konya Football League champions.
Throughout the second half of the 20th century, Konyaspor mostly played in the 1. Lig (second tier), with occasional forays both up and down. Their first significant Super Lig run was between 1988 and 1993, but it was followed by another decade in the tier below.
However, their fortunes seem to have changed after the promotion of 2003, and most of their seasons since have been spent among the elite. The best-ever league finish was the third place in 2015/16, which was followed by two consecutive seasons in the Europa League.
Though Konyaspor have never been crowned the national champions, they do have a major trophy in their cabinet. In 2017, they lifted the Turkish Cup as they beat Istanbul Basaksehir on penalties in the final.
