DUFC Official Sister Club of Trabzonspor
Turkish Super Lig club accepts Drogheda United as official sister club
Councillor Paul Bell, Mayor of Drogheda with Onur Ekren, Second Secretary, Turkish Embassy
Drogheda United FC is delighted to announce that top Turkish Super Lig club
Trabzonspor has accepted Drogheda United as its official sister club. This
announcement paves the way for greater co-operation between the two clubs
and indeed between the town of Drogheda and Turkey generally.
It is a tremendous honour to have the relationship between Drogheda United and
Trabzonspor cemented in this manner and shows the friendship and respect
that the clubs have developed over the last number of years.
The news comes on the back of a visit by a top Turkish news agency to Hunky
Dorys Park a number of weeks ago and discussions between both clubs
culminating in the Turkish Ministry for Foreign Affairs putting the proposal
to the Directors of Trabzonspor.
Speaking about the announcement, Director Roisin Phillips said "We have been
overwhelmed by the goodwill shown to us by the supporters and those involved
in Trabzonspor and hope that this latest development will lead to a number
of further exciting initiatives over the coming months".
