The Turkey Men’s national lacrosse team will be featured on the show Hobi Kulübü on Fenerbahce TV channel on Saturday, December 14th 2013 at 12.00pm local Turkish time. (5.00am EST) This should be about a 20 minute segment on our program.
The host, Cansu Günerdi, noticed our national team training camp last month while filming the local youth playing soccer (football) at the Fenerbahce facility next to us. She came over and asked us about our sport and wanted to film us for her new show. The next day she and her cameraman came to our morning session and filmed us for about 2 hours.
This was great to show our sport to another group of sport fans. In case you don’t know, Fenerbahce is one of the biggest sports clubs in Turkey. They are one of the top clubs in soccer (football), basketball, volleyball and other professional sports in Turkey. They have their own TV station and reaches millions upon millions of avid fans.
Below is the promotional commercial for the show and at 13 second mark, you will see a fellow national team hopeful.
You may also be able to watch the show online at www.fbtvonline.com.
This is an awesome opportunity for our progam and our national team to have some recognization from one of the largest sports clubs in Turkey. We hope you are able to watch our segment on national tv and one of the top sports channels in Turkey.
We would like to thank Cansu for coming out and giving us some exposure and to Fenerbahce TV and Fenerbahce Sports Club.
