Chairman of the Board of Directors Kaan Saltık and Mercedes-Benz Türk executives attended.
Within the scope of this agreement; Mercedes-Benz Türk has also redesigned the interior of the vehicle, which it has specially dressed, in line with the needs of the Amputee Football National Team athletes. This vehicle will serve the Amputee Football National Team athletes.
In his speech at the ceremony, President of Turkish Physically Disabled Sports Federation Muaz Ergezen said: With the establishment of TBESF, a new page has been opened in the access of our physically disabled individuals to sports in Turkey. Every goal scored by our Amputee Football National Team players, who are frequently mentioned on this page with their success, indirectly contributes to the recognition of other branches of our federation. We have reached where we are today with small steps and impossibilities. Now we are a big community that dreams much bigger and never feels alone. The greatest architects of this transformation are our athletes and valuable supporters. For this reason, it is a great source of happiness and pride for us that a big brand like Mercedes-Benz Türk joins our supporters as the official transportation sponsor of the Amputee Football National Team. I hope our cooperation will be beneficial to both institutions. In addition, I would like to take this opportunity to express that I sincerely believe that we will win this important trophy to our museum as the champion at the 2022 Amputee Football World Championship, which we will host in Istanbul this year.”
Mercedes-Benz Turk Chief Executive Officer Süer Sülün said, “As the leading company of the automotive industry, we make significant contributions to our country's economy with both our production and exports. Beyond seeing our activities as a responsibility, we also carry out many corporate social benefit programs by focusing on always moving our society and our country forward. In order to support the sports of our country, we have been continuing our support in various sports branches for many years. We added the official transportation sponsorship of our Amputee Football National Team to the support we give to sports with the cooperation we made today. We are very happy that we will provide safer and more comfortable transportation for our national team football players with our bus, which we have redesigned in line with the needs of our athletes. I wish that our cooperation with the Amputee Football National Team, which we wish them to travel to many successes with the vehicle we offer for their use, will continue for many years. We wish success to our Amputee Football National Team, which will compete in the 1 Amputee Football World Cup to be held in Istanbul between 10-2022 October; We wish all our athletes and the federation to achieve new championships.”
