The longing felt by Beşiktaş fans is going to end very soon. Club Chairman Fikret Orman made a statement to the press and stated the opening date of the Vodafone Arena.
Fikret Orman expressed his sincere thanks to Beşiktaş fans for their trust and support in his statement. He said “We have constructed a palace, not just a stadium. The location of our stadium used to be utilized for Palace buildings. Vodafone Arena has unique features among other stadiums in Turkey by its remarkable architecture. We are pegging away at the construction of our stadium in order to make it ready for the Beşiktaş – Bursaspor match which will be played on 11 April.”. He also stated that blind supporters of Beşiktaş JK are welcome to come and watch the matches.
Gökhan Öğüt, the CEO of Vodafone Turkey Office also made a statement about Vodafone Arena, and said “Vodafone Arena will be the most technological stadium in Turkey. Fifty thousand people can connect to internet by the Wi-Fi of the stadium. Actually, Vodafone Arena should not be considered as an ordinary stadium, it is an urban complex”. He also said “Countdown for the opening of the stadium has started. Vodafone Arena will be put into service within 10 to 12 days by the state protocol, and Beşiktaş will come back to its sanctuary with the Bursaspor match on 11 April. Beşiktaş will play its remaining 3 matches in Vodafone Arena”.
Beşiktaş – Bursaspor (11 April, 20:00), Beşiktaş – Kayserispor (30 April, 19:00) and Beşiktaş – Osmanlıspor (16 May, 20:00) matches are going to be played in Vodafone Arena in 2015-2016 football season.
