Hi, my name is Ogulcan_Y

Localhost since Sep 11, 2020

About

Hey! My name is Ogulcan(OG shortly). I am a passionate sports fan. I have been to over 100 national and international stadiums all around the world. I have seen major football tournaments like Euro 2016 in France and many away games from Portugal to Georgia.

Since I was born in Kadıköy(hometown of Fenerbahçe Sports Club), Istanbul I am a big fan of Fenerbahçe Sports Club. It is my 17th consecutive season in Fenerbahçe Football stadium with a combined ticket. I am a big follower of both the basketball and football branches of Fenerbahçe. I followed my football team all over Europe for the football games in UEFA tournaments and I have been supporting my basketball team in Euroleague Final Four events located in Berlin, Istanbul, and Belgrade.

I enjoy a lot introducing my team to guests from all around the world and showing them how we live football in Turkey.

The Fenerbahçe Matchday Experience was the highlight of my trip to Istanbul. OG is an incredible host. He provided me with full local experience I was looking for. From start to finish you are among the Fenerbahçe fans. He treated our group with delicious street food before and after the match. I felt he made eveyone in our demographicly diverse group feel welcome. A huge bonus to booking this experience is, OG takes care of the inconvenience of getting your passolig card so you can enter the stadium.

OG is a really nice guy, and most of all full of passion for Fenerbahçe. He takes care of you in all possible manners. I can’t recommend this experience enough!

OG is an absolutely great guy who went over and above to ensure we had the best time in Istanbul. He secured derby tickets for Besiktas v Fenerbahce and tickets for Galatasaray, and a third game in the second tier. Took total care of everything, even took me on a stadium tour of Fenerbahce and out for lunch. Great guy who cares about his guests from way before you even arrive in Istanbul. Takes time to explain everything and ensure you understand about how difficult getting tickets to football in Turkey is. Can’t recommend him highly enough, made my trip.

Turkish football fans are full of energy, song, and wild support from one hour before kick-off until the players salute them after the game. As a football fan this was a rich experience - but this also gave us a true Istanbul travel experience too. Arranging an experience like this as a tourist would be daunting. The Passolig system alone is enough to put people off. Then there’s the tickets. Then, how do you know where you can sit (seating is not assigned behind the goals)? OG’s communication was excellent from the start, and he takes care of all these things. You just turn up to the cool, youthful food and drink-filled area of Kadikoy, listen to a few football/Fenerbahce stories from OG over a beer or raki, wear the scarf he has gifted for you, and follow him to the stadium. He knows the stadium windows for Passolig/Tickets, and the best places to sit inside the ground. Once in the stand, the Fenerbahce fans take things from there. The crowd behind the goals is full of energy. The fans are mostly young men, but lots of women too. My wife loves football but has not been to many big games (we live in the football backwater of Australia). She absolutely loved this whole experience. She felt 100% safe throughout, and we have videos of us jumping arm in arm with Fenerbahce fans on top of our seats looking very happy! A great travel memory. OG even treated us to a Cig Kofte after the game (don’t worry, they don’t use the raw meat anymore!). It was honestly a jewel of our Istanbul visit, and we’re so glad we shook off any worries and took the leap. Thanks OG. We hope to do it again next time we visit your extraordinary city. 👍
