Tomorrow the TSYD Ankara Cup kicks off. For those who have no idea what this is it is basically a traditonal pre-season warm up competition for Ankara teams.
This year we have Ankaragucu, Genclerbirligi, Ankaraspor and second-division Sekerspor all vying for the prestigious title of Ankara's best.
So the plans are as follows.
3 p.m.: Meet at Chopin
5:30ish: head for stadium
6 p.m.: Gencler versus Sekerspor
8:30 p.m.: Ankaragucu versus Ankaraspor
As Mrs. Oz Kanka is away down in Mersin rescueing Australians feeling from Lebanon (you can see what she is doing at a blog by an Aussie mate of mine in Mersin) I'm not sure if I can make it to both matches. Sir Eski Kanka Jim is definately going though.
Actually, I might be able to make the first match. Perhaps it is time to introduce Little Oz Kanka to Ankara football.
Tickets are 5 million for all male adults. Children and women are free.
EDIT: Thursday afternoon. I guess the Aussies are actually "fleeing" from Beirut, not "feeling"
