About (+2) : Turkish FA accepted the application of Besiktas and counted their Turkish Federation Cup winnings in 1956-1957 and 1957-1958 seasons as regular league championship winnings.There were no national league competitions made in those seasons (check the league championships link at the end of the page for more details) and Turkish FA accepted this application by declaring that those years’ Turkish Federation Cup winners were given the chance to represent Turkey in European Champions Cups therefore the winners should be named as league champions. This official decision was made by Turkish FA in 2002.
