History[edit]

Another club founded out of Altay SK is Göztepe S.K. in 1925. Altınordu merged with Altay SK and Bucaspor between 1937–1939 and renamed as Üçokspor. Altınordu played in the First League between 1959–1965 and 1966–1970. The team declined slowly after 1968 and relegated to the third league in 1978. It returned to the second league the next year and remained 13 seasons in it. It declined again since 1991 and lost her professional status in 1995–96 season.

It regained one league after matches of Amateur Football Championship in Trabzon in 2003. The team's performance improved season by season and it missed directly promotion by goal difference only against Konya Şekerspor in the third group of the third league in 2007–2008 season. It participated in extra play-off matches in Trabzon and was promoted to the second league (which is the third tier of the Turkish League) after beating both Bingöl Belediyespor and Keçiörengücü by 1:0. However, the spell in the second league was not successful and the team was again relegated to the third league after drawing with Fethiyespor 2–2 at an away match on May 9.
