After a meeting with the CEO of beIN MEDIA GROUP, Mr. Yousef Al-Obaidly, we improved the terms of the agreement and finalized the broadcasting issue that our football fans have been eagerly waiting for. I thank him very much. This agreement will create a great resource for all our clubs, especially for our Anatolia region teams, which make up a large part of our main income from broadcasting revenues. I would like to thank Digiturk and Mr. Yousef Al-Obaidly for their consistent support to Turkish football and for this contract being signed here today. I have an absolute faith that we will make a good cooperation in a harmonious manner during the new period. I wish this cooperation to be beneficial to the entire football family, especially to our clubs. I hope that our cooperation with beIN MEDIA GROUP, who started to support Turkish football with Digiturk in 2001, who is a pioneer in football broadcasting and who makes significant investments in Turkey, will continue for many years.".
