Aras Kargo Continues to Carry the Excitement of Football with the National Team
With the sponsorship agreement signed between Aras Kargo, Turkey"s leading and innovative delivery company, and the Turkish Football Federation (TFF), Aras Kargo became the sponsor of Men"s National Football Teams and the eNational team. Under the sponsorship agreement, which became official with a ceremony held on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 at the TFF’s Riva Facilities, Aras Kargo assumed the title of official sponsor of Men"s National Football Team, as well as the main sponsor of the eNational football team for two years.
The sponsorship agreement between TFF and Aras Kargo became official with a protocol signed between Nihat Özdemir, TFF’s President, Alkım Kalkavan, TFF Board Member Responsible for Marketing and Sponsorship Agreements, and Aras Kargo’s General Director Utku Ayyarkın. Under the sponsorship agreement, Aras Kargo became the official sponsor of the Men"s National Football Teams for two years while taking over as the main sponsor of the eNational team.
At the signing ceremony, Utku Ayyarkın, General Manager of Aras Kargo, said, "At Aras Kargo, we want to support sports clubs and football every way we can. Last year saw our commitment to sports materialize in our partnerships with the TFF and the football clubs. We are now taking our engagement with the sports community to the next level with this sponsorship agreement for our National Team. We love how sports brings people together. For more than forty years now, we have been delivering parcels to all corners of the country “with care”. Every day, we cover great distances with more than 6,000 vehicles, what would be equivalent to encircling the world seven times. We knock on an average of 1 million doors every day. In a way, we have a mission that unites our country from one end to the other. The same goes for our national teams, so I think this collaboration is a symbolic gesture of unity. We strive to create value not only with the services we provide, but also with the work we do to contribute to the environment, society and people. This new way we have found of supporting our national teams, which is a cherished national value that unities people of all ages, is an important step in our overall efforts of being their for our sportsmen. With this cooperation, we are also pleased to be able to throw our weight not just behind our Men"s national football team, but also a new but fast growing branch of sports that has been attracting a lot of attention. eFootball is a promising industry that has attracted lots of attention worldwide in recent years, and Turkey is no exception. It is a valuable opportunity for us to support our eMilli team, which has in it Turkey"s best athletes. We gradually are evolving from a service company to a technology company. My wish is that this will be the beginning of a time when we enjoy the success and victories of our teams in eFootball, which is bringing the world together via technology. I would like to express my gratitude to all the managers and staff of our association, especially President Nihat Özdemir, and also to all my colleagues, who have been involved in the process, for their valuable contributions. I wish this to bring all the good things that our country and the Turkish football deserves.”
TFF President Nihat Özdemir said the following on the new sponsorship deal, "As a result of the work we have done in the thirty-two months since we took office on June 1, 2019, we have signed very important sponsorship agreements with valuable brands, most of them during the pandemic, which we have been experiencing for twenty-three months now. We will be sharing good news about our new agreements in the near future. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our main, official and supplier sponsors, especially Aras Kargo, who never withheld their support and stood by our national teams despite the pandemic conditions that immensely impacted our country and the entire world.”
Alkım Kalkavan, Board member responsible for Sponsorship Agreements and Marketing, said, "We are pleased that Aras Kargo, one of the most important freight companies in our country that makes valuable contributions to Turkish sports, has joined our family. Our cooperation with them, which started last year at the Ziraat Turkey Cup, will continue with them assuming the role of the sponsor of the Men"s National Team and the E-National Team for the next 2 years. Once again, I would like to welcome them to the Turkish Football Federation family wishing that this agreement will benefit both institutions.”
