BEŞİKTAŞ and the others
Beşiktaş, within its 106 years, has been the first to accomplish many things. This time, the cause was one that proved Beşiktaş is the peoples team. After the Turkish Football Federation announced that players names are to be written under their numbers, most of our opponents chose to print names of multi million dollar companies on their jerseys. WE decided to have The Turkish Red Cresent logo free of charge.
Our football team carried the Red Cresent logo on thier jerseys during the clash between Antalyaspor. This was done to create awareness of the importance of this organisation to the Turkish community. The Red Cresent is a charity organiation aimed at helping citizens that are in need. Beşiktaş's supporter group Çarşı had also teamed up with The Red Cresent many times before for blood donation events.
This is what we expect from the Beşiktaş board. To be socially aware and responsible. We hope that positive actions as such continue and the board dont change their minds to become one of the sheep in the herd. HALKIN TAKIMI BEŞİKTAŞ !
