Gençlerbirliği are currently ninth in the Süper Lig on 40 points after 33 games.
The capital side were defeated by Mersin İdman Yurdu on Friday and have one game remaining this season.
Gençlerbirliği have now lost three consecutive games and will take on Istanbul giants Beşiktaş away from home next season. Despite technically being an away game the match will be played in Ankara at the Osmanlı stadium.
