Orduspor Show Ankaragucu how its done off the field ?
Took this article from the Anti X website and found it a very interesting read. You may be wondering what has this got to do with Ankaragucu and Genclerbirligi? Well with the current state we are in at the moment it has everything to do with us.
Orduspor are back in the Super Lig after a long absence and they don't intend on just making up the numbers. They have added players like Juan Culio, Bogdan Stancu and ex Ankaragucu striker Fatih Tekke to there squad. But its what they are doing off the football pitch that is very interesting.
Their management are very ambitious and are doing everything they can to bring in extra revenue and grow the clubs name. They had sales days in Ordu where people could buy season tickets, they have their main website in English, an official club magazine, Orduspor supporter cards and a mobile telephone deal that makes the club money too. On top of that they have plans to build a new stadium.
I'm sure you will all agree what the club is doing is nothing short of fantastic and we can only wonder what Ankaragucu would be like if our management had the same ideas. Orduspor have even opened up its own Club Shops while Ankaragucu still lag behind with the one small shop at Tandogan. Not good enough !!
