Hello football lovers! I am Ogulcan and I invite you to come and watch a Fenerbahçe match with me.
You will be enjoying a Turkish traditional alcoholic beverage called Rakı while watching live Fenerbahçe game in a local bar with local fans!
Fenerbahçe is the football club of the Asian side of Istanbul. The club has a stadium and its training facilities on the opposite side of the river. It also has an exquisite seaside facility called Faruk Ilgaz, where they serve food and live game streaming. This amazing place is very cosy and has an amazing sea view. That’s where we are going to watch Fenerbahçe SK’s football match with true supporters!
Rakı is a sweetened, often anise-flavoured, alcoholic drink that is popular in Albania, Turkic countries, Turkey, the Greek Islands, and in the Balkan countries as an apéritif. It is often served with seafood or meze. It is comparable to several other alcoholic beverages available around the Mediterranean and the Middle East, e.g. pastis, ouzo, sambuca, arak, and aguardiente.
I will be greeting and informing you about the club’s history and today’s football in Turkey. We will be heading to our table and order our tapas and rakı. And wait for the game to start. We are going to enjoy the game and the drink together with local fans.
Hope to drink with you! Cheers!
