With only two weeks until the 2014/15 season kicks off Ankaragucu continue their preparations in order to be ready for the season opener against Kahramanmaras.

Ankaragucu fans will be able to buy their season tickets from Tandogan on the 18th August. The Kankas will be able to pick up their season ticket for 200 Turkish Lira which is a rise from last season but still a great price when you consider football prices in other nations. Mehmet Yiginer has already stated that the club need the money from season tickets and that is the reason the prices have went up. Fans will also be able to buy their new strips from the club shop.
It looks like one more player is set to leave the club. Long serving Bayram Olgun is in talks with Manisaspor over a move to the PTT Lig side. Bayram has been an excellent servant for the club and no one would blame him if he decided to move to Manisa. With Gokhan Akkan, Cihan Bal and Turgut Kirveli all capable Goalkeepers the club will look to cash in on Bayram.
The club have however handed a 1 year professional contract to youth team player Ozcan Akkaya. The club have already stated that they will use the youth team to bring players through due to the financial problems.
