Convoy of 200 buses to transport Sivasspor fans to the Turkish Cup final


Sivas Municipality will set up a fleet of more than 200 buses to transport Sivasspor fans to the Turkish Cup final against Kayserispor on May 26.

The fleet will travel almost 900 kilometers from the central province of Anatolia to reach the venue for the final, the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.

Sivas Mayor Hilmi Bilgin and Sivasspor club president Mecnun Otyakmaz confirmed the news during a press conference held at the club premises on Thursday.

Bilgin thanked the players, team management and technical committee for reaching the final and said the city was ready to do its duty to support his team.

“Let’s do our duty so that Sivas fans can come to Istanbul to support their team and become our team’s 12th man.”

“We spoke to our club president and club management. We offered everything we could offer to support Sivasspor. We plan to take everyone with a ticket for the Sivas game in Istanbul. .”

“We have a fleet of 200 buses ready and we will add more if needed. We won’t let anyone miss it,” Bilgin said.

He added that the city supports the team and expressed his full confidence that the team will do their best in the final.

“This trophy will go to Sivas! Sivasspor is our biggest brand, our representative in Europe. As a city, we have to be part of it,” said the mayor.

Club President Otyakmaz thanked Mayor Bilgin for his continued support for the club.

He underlined the importance of the match for Sivasspor. It would be the club’s first cup final in history.

“This may be our most important match so far and to emerge victorious from this fight, we must act together and harness the power of unity,” he said.

He also pointed to the fact that the final against neighboring Kayseri will be something of an Anatolian derby, making the match even more intriguing.

“Kayseri is our neighboring province and they have a very successful team. Like us, they are also eager to win the Turkish Cup this year. The final will be a crowning achievement for Anatolian football.

“That’s why we invite all our fans to the game… We want to organize something worthy of our fans. I believe we can achieve this together. It will be a good game and I hope we can bring the trophy to our city.” Otyakmaz said.
