Chairman's Message

Dear Beşiktaş Family,

As you all know, with our 20 million devoted fans, we are one of the largest non-governmental organisations operating in this country. Therefore, unlike the other sports clubs, we not only pay special emphasis to but also engage in educational, health and cultural projects that benefit our citizens.

In this regard, we are going to be opening our Beşiktaş JK and Kabataş Association High-School this spring, with the registration for new students starting on 19 March 2019. We believe this school will be a significant step towards the establishment of Beşiktaş JK University.

As a part of our international projects, we have signed a business cooperation agreement with the Turkey-based Dorak Tour who will be bringing visitors to our shrine Vodafone Park from all over the world. I have no doubt that, with its modern museum, restaurants and fun centers, Vodafone Park will a major tourist attraction of Istanbul in very near future.

In the meantime, Bahçeşehir College has become a jersey sponsor to our football team for the next two seasons. I guess my administration’s search for finding new income sources will never end!

Let’s not forget to celebrate the Beşiktaş JK’s 116th Birthday on 19 March! I expres my sincere gratitude and thanks to those who have contributed to Beşiktaş JK over the years.

My best wishes to all of you.

Fikret Orman
Executive Chairman
Beşiktaş JK
