With this agreement, Spor Toto Organization gave the name to the 1st League of Turkish Football (TFF) which is one of the fundemental organisation of Turkish football. These developments are the most powerfull proof that football is not backed by an industrialized environment, that we are keeping up with the era.

The resources that we transfer to the football will be boosting power for all the clubs in our league.”

Hence, it is crucial that our citizens steering themselves toward illegal websites stay away from those websites. All respective institutions are endeavoring intensely in the scope of fight against illegal betting. The Finance Ministry has recently taken a significant step and started to sequester the deposits of the accounts determined to be related with those websites. It is also an issue welcomed with great sensitivity by Osman Aşkın Bak, our Minister of Youth and Sports. They provided substantial support to this agreement. In addition, all the stakeholders of the issue are performing extremely painstaking works on fight against illegal betting. I, by heart, believe that those works will create impact in the course of time. Our objective is to bring the unregistered money back to the Turkish economy.”
