Our participation in sports had been generous and far-reaching, beginning in 1993 with the founding of the Ülkerspor basketball club. We sponsored the 2010 FIBA World Basketball Championship and the Children of the World (COW) Project, in order to advance nationwide participation in sports. COW brought together 300 children from 110 countries.
We supported the first FIFA event to be held in Turkey, the 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup. In addition, we backed Istanbul’s bid to host the 2020 Olympics.
Ülker supported both professional teams and infrastructure projects in football and basketball. We were a proud sponsor of the Turkish National Football Team, as well as Fenerbahçe Basketball Team and also we continue to support Turkish Sports Club such as Fenerbahçe, Galatasaray, Beşiktaş, Trabzonspor, Bursaspor.
