The sports complex was commissioned by the Turkish Volleyball Federation and its construction began on 8 April 2009 with groundbreaking. The hall was opened on 6 February 2010 and named after "capital city" (Turkish: Başkent).[2]

As of July 2016 the facility has been exposed by Amnesty International as a government detention centre and torture facility for almost 10,000 soldiers involved in the failed coup d'état that was attempted by an as yet undisclosed secular anti-ISIS movement.[3] where soldiers are being raped, beaten, and deprived of food and water with an as yet unknown death toll.
