Despite two different administrations during the application period, the will to conclude this application has not been demonstrated.

During this process, in July of the past year, the Turkish Football Federation announced the decision to form a special commission to evaluate the success criteria and official status of the league that started as the Turkish 1st Football League in 1959 and continued as the Super League, both before and after 1959. However, no concrete steps have been taken to date.

The situation where an application waits for 3 years to be examined in the TFF Board, as has never been encountered before, unquestionably violates our club's right to seek justice.

From the very beginning, we have been demanding the necessary steps be taken promptly and our rights be acknowledged for our championships before 1959, which we have pursued with historical facts, official references, and evidence. We announce to the public with respect that we stand behind our case, will never give up, and will not allow shadows to be cast on the efforts of Zeki Rıza, Lefter, Cihat, and many others.”
