TSYD Cup kicks off on Friday

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"


  1. It is now a fact that Mrs Oz Kanka is becoming more famous than her husband !! Well done Elif and keep up the good work.

    Great idea to bring Little Oz Kanka to the match tomorrow. It is about time he was introduced to EFES and LIVE footie !!

    Look forward to seeing you all in Chopin Bar at around 3pm.

  2. I don't really know about bringing Little Oz Kanka along. It could be quite difficult.

    So much easier going to see the Balmain Tigers in Sydney. They have a huge grass hill where all the kiddies can run around as much as they like.

    I'll see if I can get the nanny to stay till 8:30pm. That way I can go to the first match at least.

  3. Well, let's hope Oz Kanka can make it.

    It will be intriguing to see the `new` Sekerspor in action and I don't think it will be an easy match for Gencler.

    Sekerspor have nothing to lose and will no doubt attack from the outset.

    I wonder which team the ANKARAGUCU supporters will be supporting ???!!!
