Chairman Fikret Orman's Message

Dear Beşiktaş Fans,

Beşiktaş JK is a club that doesn’t sacrifice its values and traditions just for the sake of victory. We aim at winning games through fair play and hard work solely. You will never see us breaking rules and resorting to deceitful tactics to achieve success.

Let us not forget, due to the construction of our new stadium, we’ve been playing our football matches at different venues throughout the season. Despite this serious handicap, we’ve managed to eliminate the European giants Liverpool in the Europa League and made all of you proud. Even though the Club Brugge have put an end to our campaign in the following round, we have shown to the world that the Beşiktaş have the capacity to win a title in Europe. We will spare no effort to realize this goal in the coming seasons.

Now, we have turned our focus to the Turkish Super League, and with our young and talented team, are concentrating on winning this season’s title. Of course, we cannot achieve this goal without your support. Therefore, treat each game as the final and come out to cheer us on with all your might because your favourite team need you!

As I’ve told you before, we are hoping to lift the League Cup at our new shrine Vodafone Arena. With this opportunity, I welcome our youth football teams’ new sponsor Valmiera Glass, who will build the retractable roof for it. Its work will surely set a new precedent for the future stadiums in Turkey.

Chasing a championship title without a regular home ground is not an easy task because you are constantly on the move and have to play your matches at different venues with limited fan support. If we can achieve this goal, it will be twice as hard.

My best wishes to you all,

Fikret Orman
Beşiktaş JK
