Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Details of the Ankara Sportswriters Cup matches were released in the press this morning.
The bad news is that all the matches, with the exception of the final, will be played in The Stadium from Hell in Yenikent. After 3 then ............ 1 ....... 2 ......... 3 ............
OK, so the final will be held in the 19 Mayis Stadium, but it will not be an Ankaragucu v Genclerbirligi final !
Here are the details -
Friday 31 July KO 6pm - Ankaraspor v Eskisehirspor
Friday 31 July KO 8pm - Ankaragucu v Genclerbirligi
Saturday 1 August KO 6pm - 3rd/4th Place Playoff
Saturday 1 August KO 10pm - Final
We will work out the logistics for Friday nearer the time. Getting into Yenikent for an 8pm KO is no prob, but getting out of there late at night will be a nightmare scenario, especially if there is a penalty shoot out at the end of the match. A subject for discussion in the coming weeks me thinks !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
