Ali Koç Highlights Fenerbahçe’s Strengths!

Fenerbahçe President Ali Koç made a pointed remark about Galatasaray during his speech at the certificate ceremony organized for the newly elected committees for the new term.

The committees elected during Fenerbahçe's Ordinary General Assembly held on June 8-9 took office by receiving their certificates at a ceremony held at Koç Group Sports .

During his speech at the ceremony, said:

“I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE TO SERVE FENERBAHÇE”

“Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude and thanks to all the Committee Members who served our Fenerbahçe in the previous term, working sincerely and intensively, fulfilling their duties with excitement, heartfelt desire, and willingness in line with the interests of our Club. Although the official service period of some of our friends has ended, I am lifting the formality. As I know you, some very well, some well, and some less well, I have no doubt that you will continue to fight and serve Fenerbahçe to the end due to your love for Fenerbahçe, whether you have an official duty or not.”

“THE PROGRAM WITH MR. AZIZ SHOWED US HOW GREAT FENERBAHÇE IS”

“We have left behind a colorful and exciting election. The night before the election, while I was going to be a witness at a wedding of one of our , my phone rang. I usually do not answer calls from unknown numbers. I answered this one. It was Mr. . He said, ‘I accept your proposal.' I said, ‘Okay, .' He said, ‘I have one condition, it will be on a national channel and without a moderator.' I said, ‘President, it's 8:00 PM, how will we find a national channel within a few hours? I don't know if they will accept it without a moderator. If you want, let's do it on .' He said, ‘No, not Fenerbahçe TV, I want it to be on a national channel so everyone can watch.' I went to the wedding. Then, there was a boat trip with more than 500 of our overseas associations. I joined it. Meanwhile, Mr. Erol and our team, together with Mr. Aziz's team, identified a channel. Of course, when this news came out, channels lined up. This is one of the indicators of Fenerbahçe's greatness. Then, Habertürk television was chosen. It was a spontaneous program that almost half of the television viewers watched on a Saturday evening at 11:00 PM, without almost any advertisement, showing once again how great Fenerbahçe is.”

“OUR RIVAL'S CHAMPIONSHIP WAS TALKED ABOUT FOR THREE DAYS”

“Our rival became the champion, and it was talked about for three days, if at all. Fenerbahçe's new coach, Fenerbahçe's elections were talked about. We must remember how strong, powerful, and mighty this club is, and the times when we need to direct this club's strength and energy outward, not inward, have long since passed.”

“HOPEFULLY, EVERYONE WILL KEEP THEIR WORD”

“Two candidates took the stage, congratulated each other, addressed our Congress Members, and thus ignited the spark for the normalization process in Fenerbahçe. Hopefully, this is a sincere development. Hopefully, everyone will keep their word, and we will from now on focus our energy not on dealing with each other but on those dealing with us. When we, as a community, focus on something, no one can get ahead of us. We have shown this throughout our history, and we most recently showed it on . I said in this regard, ‘For every step taken, I will take ten steps.' My friends and I stand by this statement.”

Afterward, presented a plaque of appreciation to the Committee Members who served in the previous term. For the Committee Members who will serve in the new term, their certificates were presented by our President Koç and Congress Board President Vefa Küçük.

Following the ceremony, the Committee Members took a group photo with Ali Koç and Vefa Küçük.
