Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
The good news is that there will be a footie competition in Ankara this week featuring 6 clubs from the Super League.
The competition is called Baskent Kupasi (The Capital City Cup) and will start on Wednesday until Sunday of next week - 10 to 14 August.
There will be 3 teams in each group as follows -
Group A - Ankaragucu, Ordu and Karabuk
Group B - Gencler, Sivas and Mersin
The only likely problem is that the matches will be played at the Saray Spor Tesisleri which is in Gazi Mahallesi, and although there are lots of football pitches, the main Stadium is small. I will ask Maniac Kanka Harun for more details tonight and let you know further details in the comments section tomorrow.
The programme is -
Wed 10 Aug KO 7pm - Ankaragucu v Ordu
Wed 10 Aug KO 9pm - Gencler v Sivas
Thu 11 Aug KO 7pm - Gencler v Mersin
Thu 11 Aug KO 9pm - Ankaragucu v Karabuk
Fri 12 Aug KO 7pm - Ordu v Karabuk
Fri 12 Aug KO 9pm - Sivas v Mersin
Sun 14 Aug KO 7pm - 5th Place match
Sun 14 Aug KO 7pm - 3rd Place match
Sun 14 Aug KO 9pm - Final
So, some footie to cheer at last. Well done to the organisers for putting this together for us footie starved fans !
As I said, more details tomorrow about the venue, also where and when we are going to meet up.
Oz Kanka Chris is flying into Ankara tonight so I'm sure he will be up for this. Welcome back Oz !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
