InEnArt organized the three sided fooball match in the frame of parallel events of the 13th International Istanbul Biennial on September 14th in cooperation with Philosophy Football FC UK, Dynamo Windrad Germany and Ayazma Football Club Turkey.

A large crowd welcomed the event and were enthusiastic about this variation of association football with the three squads instead of the usual two.

The three teams shared the broad cultural ideas of the Biennial with their performance.  Three-sided football is seen as an artistic form, a ‘spectacle’ and a chance to demonstrate that different views, ideas and approaches can be expressed freely and spontaneously in ways that promote dialogue and cooperation rather than conflict and division.

Geoff Andrews from the Philosophy Football FC launched the Three Sided Football Federation at this tournament in Istanbul.

Halil İbrahim Dinçdağ, who got fired by the Turkish Football Federation in 2009, was the referee.

Winner of the match was the Philosophy Football FC from the UK.
