Fenerbahce are set to vote on whether they will go through with their threat of withdrawing from the Super Lig on Tuesday, with the Turkish top-flight club’s future hanging in the balance.

In March, Fenerbahce said they would consider withdrawing from the league after their players were attacked by Trabzonspor fans during a match.

Trabzonspor supporters stormed the pitch and brawled with security forces and Fenerbahce players after their team lost 3-2, the latest in a number of incidents that have dogged the Turkish league that this season.

Fenerbahce will hold an Extraordinary General Assembly Meeting on Tuesday, at which their members will vote on a motion to withdraw the club from the league.

Fenerbahce, who won their 19th league title in 2014, are second in the standings after 30 games – two points behind Galatasaray. They are due to host Adana Demirspor on Wednesday.
