Accompanied by Soccer Academy coordinator Ufuk Pak, Besiktas JK president Fikret Orman visited Melbourne Besiktas Soccer Academy and met Australian Besiktas Fans Union president Güngör Yurtseven.
Orman was very happy with the hospitality he received from Australian Besiktas fans. “They used to call the British Empire -The empire on which the sun never sets. Besiktas is like that – a club with fans from Australia to US” Orman said.
Orman also invited Australian soccer clubs to play friendly games against Besiktas either in Canakkale or Istanbul to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli battle.
