On this occasion, we wish the continuation of the services of our President to our club with a brand-new spirit and formation, and we withdraw our candidacy in favor of our President Ali Koç in the upcoming ordinary election congress with our friends.

We wish our elections to be beneficial to our community and Turkish sports and offer our deepest respects.
