In this period, football pitches are among the places where intensive measures are taken to protect the health of our athletes and ensure that games are played out. Since we believed that our experience in pandemic response would be a good match for the need here, we wanted to use a special remote-controlled vehicle to bring the ball onto the pitch to be in line with the pandemic measures, and the federation approved our idea. We signed such cooperation with the aim of increasing our contribution to Turkish sport on the one hand and demonstrating our expertise in this field in an area like football, which people follow with passion and interest, on the other.
