He made his youth soccer debut with Narlıdere Esnafspor in 1994.
Born in İzmir, Ateş made his professional debut with Altay S.K. and Adanaspor, scoring for both at an impressive rate. In 2004, he signed with Süper Lig giants Galatasaray SK.
Ateş made his Turkey national team debut during the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup, playing three times for the third-placed nation and going scoreless in the process. His first goal came on 26 March 2005, in a 2–0 home win against Albania for the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. He also netted in the turbulent playoff against Switzerland, in November.
In 2005–06, Ateş played an integral part in Galatasaray's 16th national championship conquest. However, on 25 July 2007, club manager Karl-Heinz Feldkamp officially reported to the board he was not planning to use the player in the upcoming season, which resulted in a transfer list; he split (always on loan) the campaign between Ankaraspor and Istanbul Büyükşehir Belediyespor, netting 11 goals in total.
In the 2009 summer, after more than 100 official matches and over 50 goals, Galtasaray released Ateş. He immediately joined fellow league club Antalyaspor, ranking joint-fourth in the topscorers' list as it finished ninth.
Currently, Necati Ateş is 40 years old. Necati Ateş will celebrate 41st birthday on Sunday, January 3, 2021.
