Yıldırım Demirören has been re-elected as Turkish Football Federation (TFF) president on a four-year term.
Demirören, 50, has served as TFF president since February 2012. Important steps have been taken during his time in office, such as the much-anticipated construction and completion of the TFF national team centre, which was inaugurated last year. The high-quality complex is now serving as a home for all national teams, as well as a venue for various seminars, workshops and courses throughout the year.
"The Turkish football community is like a big family, and you have voted for me to preside over it," Demirören told delegates at the association's annual ordinary congress in Ankara. "We are aware of the responsibility we have been given. We will be continuing our job with greater enthusiasm and ambition."
Before the congress, the TFF president explained a number of plans for the future during a TV broadcast. These include expanding the facilities at the TFF centre by building new sections which will be open for use by other football clubs, and the construction of another complex in Antalya.
Other items on the agenda include external marketing of the Turkish Super League rights through the establishment of a specific company, tighter financial and administrative auditing of clubs, and further integration of football within schools.
