Third consecutive title for Zeytinburnu Istanbul, this time not leaving even the crumbs to the opponents: perfect record during the regular season with an impressive 175-13 goals difference, the massacre of newly promoted Buz Adamlar in the semifinals (25-0 and 20-0) to complete the run with a final series with no thrills: 10-2 and 17-1 to wipe out the opponent Erzurum BB. After the title of last season, won in a tough series decided after game 5 against Izmir BBGSK, Zeytinburnu took advantage of the crisis of the fiercest opponent - Izmir didn't allign a team in 2016-17 Super Lig - catching the best player from rival: forward Serkan Gumus, attracting also Russian goalie Nikita Sandyrev, American defender Brian Dunford and Russian forward Konstantin Kuchkin from Erzurum.
