The tribunes are on fire! This is a statement you might witness happening both literally or metaphorically in Istanbul football games. My name is Ogulcan and since I was a kid I have been experiencing football games in tribunes and thanks to its atmosphere it’s my personal heaven (sometimes hell :P). Over the last 15 years, I have been going to both the away and home games of my team Fenerbahçe. You will understand why it is such a big passion for us when you experience a game with me in the stands.
We’ll go to see a football game of Fenerbahçe SK together and experience how Fenerbahçe fans in Turkey live football. We will witness the passion, the customs, and the meaning of supporting a team in Istanbul. We’ll see the colorful fans, hear the sound of the drums, sing the songs, and hopefully taste a victory!
From the meeting point until the stadium, we will be doing what Fenerbahçe fans do. We will walk to places where they paint with club colors, have a beer or soda where they drink and hopefully, we will be singing their pre-game songs together with them.
Thanks to my experience with these games inside and outside of Turkey, I can guarantee you that I exactly know what a fan needs before, during, and after the game. I personally will be your guide during the whole experience. I will be next to you the whole game giving you hints for making your experience better. You don’t have to worry about tickets, logistics, security, or anything else: just enjoy the game! I will be providing a ticket and the information needed about that specific game we will attend to. So feel free to ask anything about the club, history, players, or football in general.
I will personally give away Fenerbahçe scarves to those who want the share the experience with me. I am a congress member of the club and this allows me to shop with a 10% discount in the club’s stores. So I will be helping you to use this discount if you would like to shop in the Fenerbahçe Store.
I have been a tourist guide in Istanbul for 5 years so I can help you with anything related to the city and transportation. After the game, I’ll give you instructions on how to easily return home safe and sound.
I will also let you know what colors to wear or not to wear to the game and will teach a couple of simple chants to learn beforehand
We shall sing together: YAŞA FENERBAHÇE!
