Full support for the U20 National Team from Ülker

U20 National Team welcomed officials from Ülker during their training for the FIFA U20 World Cup. Ülker officials cut a cake with the team and wished them success in the Ülker-sponsored U20 World Cup, the biggest FIFA event to be held in Türkiye.

The Grassroots Festival with the mini World Cup concept is taking place in seven cities prior to the FIFA U20 World Cup in Türkiye with the sponsorship of Ülker, which paid a visit to the National Team's training camp and wished them luck. Officials from Ülker, which provides support to professional level players and for infrastructure, and the TFF cut a soccer-ball shaped cake with the National Team and the coaching staff, who are getting ready for the championship that is set to begin on June 21.

Ali Ülker, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, who represented Yıldız Holding at the ceremony, and Emre Alkin, General Secretary of TFF, wished success to Tugay Kerimoğlu, U20 National Team Coordinator, Coach Feyyaz Uçar and Trainer Emre Aşık, as well as to every single one of the National Team players.
Ali Ülker, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of Yıldız Holding, pointed out the projects they have been carrying out in collaboration with the TFF since 2007 for the children who are the future of Turkish soccer, and emphasized the need to hold international events in Türkiye. "We are bearing the fruit of years of work we have been doing. This becomes evident as Türkiye plays host to these types of significant events which are bound to boost the country's reputation... We are a brand that constantly works to bring sports to more people, as such, we sponsored the 2010 FIBA World Championship and we are making a great effort for Istanbul to host the 2020 Olympics. 

We are delighted to sponsor the FIFA U20 World Cup and believe that we are making a contribution to bringing up national team players through the "Soccer for Children" project, which has reached out to nearly 250,000 children in collaboration with the the TFF," spoke Ali Ülker.

Prof. Dr. Emre Alkın, General Secretary of TFF, commented on the significance of the Championship and said, "The tournament is going to be the biggest FIFA event held in Türkiye and, as such, will make a positive impact in many areas, from sports and transportation to communication and tourism.  Along with distinguished sponsors like Ülker, we are devotedly getting ready for the event, which will act as a great reference during Türkiye's candidacy process in all great sporting events. I hope we will complete this important event as a successful event host and with good results from our National Team.  In the presence of Ali Ülker, I would like to thank Yıldız Holding, our local sponsor for the U20 World Cup, for the great support it provides to sports, especially to soccer, in the country."

"There is only a short time left before the championship that our country will host. We have been at training camp for 10 days. Our goal is to get the best result in this World Cup. We call for support from everyone in Türkiye. We are overjoyed with the support of Ülker, one of our local sponsors, ahead of the practice match we are going to play with Paraguay in Istanbul on June 14 and the group matches planned in Trabzon. I hope the tournament will provide even more to celebrate than we already feel here. As the official song says, stars will be born here from the talent of a group of 21 individuals. We thank everyone who has been a part of the effort," said Feyyaz Uçar, U20 National Team Coach.
