Beşiktaş in Soma for Support of Mine Victims

Beşiktaş JK Chairman Fikret Orman visited the Soma coal mine where nearly 300 miners passed away in a tragic fire on Tuesday and expressed his condolences to their families. “As a community active in civic life besides the sports, we were in Van and Elazığ earthquakes, and now, we are in Soma. Our Club has decided to donate the ticket sales proceeds from its game against Gençlerbirliği to the families of the miners who lost their lives in this unfortunate accident. We will also contribute to the Beşiktaş Municipality’s “Free Housing for Soma Victims” project. In addition to these, the proceeds from the exhibition match we intend to play with the Fenerbahçe will be distributed among the involved families,” said the Chairman.
