The Birkbeck Sport Business Centre is hosting the London launch of the Governance Guide for Turkish Football Clubs in association with the report’s authors, the Corporate Governance Association of Turkey (TKYD).

The Keynote speakers will be:

  • Dr Levent Bıçakcı, former President of the Turkish Football Association, and member of the UEFA Appeals Committee.
  • Mr Dorukhan Acar,  TKYD Board member, The Boston Consulting Group Project Leader
  • Mr Mete İkiz, TKYD Board member, Private Equity Director of the National Bank of Greece
  • Sean Hamil, Co-Director, the Birkbeck Sport Business Centre

The TKYD has taken the initiative to support establishing the standards of corporate governance in Turkish football. TKYD’s focus is to ensure good governance principles in the Turkish business community and the Turkish football industry with its estimated €750 million  market size as of the 2009/2010 season meaning it has become a very tangible part of the Turkish business community.

In order to support and guide football club directors at all competitive levels a set of guidelines has been prepared and was launched in Istanbul in January 2010. The English version of this Governance Guide for Turkish Football Clubs is being shared with the international media and UK representatives, with participation of media representatives from Turkey, on the 7th June at Birkbeck College, University of London.
