Chairman's Message

March 2017

Dear Beşiktaş Supporters,

As the defending champions, our men’s football team are still leading the Turkish Super League this season, winning their matches fair and square. Most critics now agree that the Black Eagles deserve another title with their dominating and eye-catching performances on the pitch. With your continued support, I have no doubt that our lads will go ahead and repeat last season’s achievement of finishing at the top.

In addition to serving as a smart stadium and home to Black Eagles, our Vodafone Arena, which is not even one-year-old, has already become a social and entertaintment hub of the Istanbul City with its modern concert hall and fashion centre. The newly-opened Beşiktaş JK Museum inside the Vodafone Arena has emerged as popular destination for those who want to know more about Turkish Sports and the Beşiktaş’ contribution to it. Mark this unique museum as one of your favorite locations because, with so much history, it is a must-see attraction for all Beşiktaş lovers!

In the meantime, we are trying to increase the brand value of Beşiktaş and raise the club's income through new sponsorships. To this end, we have extended our jersey sponsorship deal with the Vodafone for two more years. It will bring in an additional $10 million to the club. On be half of the Beşiktaş JK, I would like to thank the management of Vodafone for their cooperation and trust during the past three years. Our club will never forget their support.

Finally, I take this opportunity to celebrate Beşiktaş JK's 114th Anniversary, which we will all be marking on the 19th of March, and express my sincere gratitude to those who have contributed to this glorious club since its very inception.

My best wishes to you all.

Fikret Orman
Beşiktaş J.K.
