The talks in Helsinki followed Büyükekşi’s recent election as TFF President for a one-year term and centred on two coming events in Istanbul – the 2022/23 season kick-off event and UEFA club competition group stage draws later this month, as well as the UEFA Champions League final next June.
The TFF President also presented his vision and strategy for the organisation's future development, emphasising the intention to raise Turkish football's brand value over the coming years.
Büyükekşi, a graduate in architecture, business and English language, was the former president of Gaziantep FK and is active in many business associations.
