Filip Holosko and Serdar Özkan visit the Grassroots Center

Beşiktaş footballers Filip Holosko and Serdar Özkan visited the Gündüz Tekin Grassroots Center, which was established jointly by TFF sponsor ÜLKER and the TFF AR-PEG department.  The Grassroots project is sponsored by Ülker and the Turkish Football Federation and is a project which has been the recipient of the largest corporate investment ever realized for a Turkish sports project. While they were the center, for a short time the players did some training with young footballers registered at the football center.

Children of 6 – 12 years of age, both boys and girls, can participate for free at the centers where they learn about sports, develop their social skills, not only as footballers and fans, but as healthy youngsters.  The Grassroots Centers project was created not only to promote football and related issues, but to instill a sense of fair play, environmental awareness and balanced nutrition in the minds of children who take part.
The start and end dates of the 4 week participation periods, which will continue until June, are listed below:

19 January – 10 February
16 February - 9 March
15 March- 6 April
12 April – 4 May
10 May – 1 June

The June-September activities at the Beylerbeyi Gündüz Tekin Onay Grassroots Center, named for footballer and coach Gündüz Tekin Onay, whom we lost at the beginning of January, will be conducted using a different platform.  The Beylerbey Gündüz Tekin Onay Grassroots Center was the first Grassroots Center established under the project.
