Besiktas signs record sponsorship with Tüpraş for Istanbul stadium naming rights

October 5 – Turkey’s Besiktas says it has signed the most valuable sponsorship deal in its 120-year history with Turkey’s largest industrial Turkey – Tüpraş.

The deal will see Beşiktaş’s stadium in Istanbul renamed the Tüpraş Stadium for the next three years.

“We came together for the highest-priced sponsorship agreement in Beşiktaş history. It took some time to sign it, but it turned out the way we wanted. Tüpraş is a national giant. The coming together of two brands with a great history is important for both brands. I am also happy that our brand came together with Tüpraş, a national brand,” said the president of Besiktas Ahmet Nur Çebi.

“I would also like to thank other institutions and organizations that held sponsorship negotiations with us. May the sponsorship agreement we signed be beneficial to our community and Tüpraş. It is also important to spend that income properly, as well as signing sponsorship agreements with high prices”, said the president of Besiktas Ahmet Nur Çebi at the signing ceremony.

Tüpraş General Manager İbrahim Yelmenoğlu emphasised that the partnership is part of his company’s sustainability programme that it has put at the front of its commercial discussions.

“As Turkey’s largest industrial company, we are very excited and proud to support Beşiktaş JK, one of the most established clubs in our sports world, as the stadium sponsor.  I believe that our collaboration will contribute greatly to reaching large audiences with our sustainability strategy, which we support with our slogan ‘Our Energy for the Future’, and the steps we take in this context,” said Yelmenoğlu.

“I hope that this beautiful collaboration, which brings us together around the same energy by saying ‘Today is the Day I Came to You’, will be beneficial and auspicious for our country and Turkish sports. In this journey, which we started by saying ‘Our Energy is for the Future’, with the strength we draw from our deep-rooted experience of more than 60 years, we are changing for a sustainable world and transforming to produce the energy of the future. We are committed to building the Tüpraş of tomorrow on sustainable foundations.”

“It is extremely important for us to make this journey of change and transformation known to a wider audience, with the responsibility we assume towards future generations. I believe that this collaboration with Beşiktaş JK will increase awareness and contribute greatly to the support of our transformation journey… Sports, especially football, are a very important platform for raising awareness of sustainability goals in all segments of society.”
