History

The club was founded as Güneykent Spor in Gaziantep.[2] ALG Spor started playing league matches by entering the Group 6 of the 2015–16 Turkish Women's Third Football League season. They finished the season runners-up in the group. The next season, the team became runners-up at the end of the play-offs, and was entitled to play in the Turkish Women's Second Football League.[3] They finished the 2017–18 Women's Second League season as champion after the play-offs, and were so promoted to the Women' First League for the 2018–19 season.[4]

To strengthen the team for the matches in the Women's First League, the club transferred three experienced footballers, Yaşam Göksu, Fatoş Yıldırım, Gülbin Hız from Konak Belediyespor and Second-League striker Ebru Atıcı from Hakkarigücü Spor in the summer of 2018.[1] Further transfers were local players Remziye Bakır, Mislina Gözükara and Fatma Songül.[5] In the beginning of the second half of the 2018–19 season, the club transferred the Ukrainian striker Tetyana Kozyrenko.[6] ALG Spor finished their first season in the Women's First League as runner-up behind Beşiktaş J.K. losing the champion title only in the last league round equal on points but with goal average. ALG Spor, the leader of the previous two rounds with goal average, won their last match with 5-1, Beşiktaş J.K. defeated their opponent by 9-0, which enabled them a goal average of four in the final. The Turkish Football Federation set a play-off round between the two teams to be played on 12 May 2019 at a neutral venue, in Manavgat, Antalya.[3] The team became runners-up after losing to Beşiktaş J.K. in the play-off match with 0-1.[7][8]
