Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Tonight is the 1st Round of the Ankara Sportswriters Cup matches and the 'big one', Ankaragcu v Gencler, kicks off at 8pm at The Stadium from Hell in Yenikent. I'm definitely going with Marash Kanka Hakan, so you can expect a report of the match tomorrow sometime (the time depends on hangover !!).
The final is tomorrow night in the 19 Mayis Stadium and the KO time has sensibly been moved from 10pm to 8pm.
The details of the first two League fixtures are as follows -
Saturday 8 August KO 9pm - Diyabakir v Ankaragucu
Sunday 9 August KO 9pm - Gencler v Kayseri
Saturday 15 August KO 9pm - Ankaragucu v Manisa
Sunday 16 August KO 9pm - Ankaraspor v Gencler
On the subject of the Ankaragucu Season Tickets. The details have been released and I have got mine. The cost of a Maraton Kombine Ticket is 150YTL and it can be purchased from Biletix in Kavaklidere or Kizilay. The gate numbers are open from 7 to 12 and I have C Block, Row I and seat number 28. Biletix will give you a receipt and we have to take it to 19 Mayis Stadium between 5 and 15 August to collect our actual ticket. Go to it !
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
