    Istanbulball also known as Istanball (Turkish: İstanbul), formerly known as Constantinopleball in  Byzantiumball, is the most populated cityball of Turkeyball. It was first adopted by Greek settlers from Megaraball. Today, Greeceball wants it back.

    Istanbulball and Constantinopleball are the same cityball, but in different time periods of its life.


    The first known name of the cityball is Byzantium ( Greek: Βυζάντιο - Byzántion, Pronounced "Vizadio" in modern Greek), around 660 BC. It took on the name of Constantinople ( Greek: Κωνσταντινουπόλεως - Konstantinoupοleos, or Κωνσταντινούπολη - Konstantinoúpoli; Latin: Constantinopolis; Ottoman Turkish: قسطنطینية - Kostantiniyye‎) after its re-foundation under Byzantineball emperor Constantine I, who transferred the imperial capital from its historic base, Romeball, to Byzantium in 330 AD and designated its new capital New Rome (Latin: Nova Roma), however, most Byzantineballs SPQRballs prefered the name "Constantinopleball" which means "Constantine's City".

    The modern Turkish name for the city, İstanbul, was used alongside Kostantiniyye, the more formal adaptation of the original name of Constantinople, during the period of Ottoman rule. Despite the name change, Western languages mostly continued to refer to the city as Constantinople until the early 20th century. After the creation of the Republic of Turkey in 1923, the Turkish government began to formally object to the use of Constantinople in other languages and ask that others use the name which they preferred, Istanbul. The official renaming took place on March 28, 1930. Constantinople became Istanbul and was no longer the capital of  the kebab ball.

    Recently, in 2016, it has been attacked a few times by the evil ISISball, which is a sad day for the city. Now, Greeceball still calls it Constantinople. In fact, a lot of people do.

    It hosted Eurovision in 2004. In 2018, it is opened the world's biggest airport.

    In March 2020, It refused to make the road to the hospital and is now infected with COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
