Back of the Net for Bodrum Spor

This VW looks very happy at Bodrum Spor's success

There's been much celebration in Bodrum this week-end as the local football team won their amateur league championship and secured their rise into the 3rd division.  They actually clinched the lead 2 matches ago but also won the last two games of the season to finish on a high note.   I live next to the stadium so was in the right place at the right time to catch the players atop this tour bus for a lap of honour around the town.   Apart from car horns they were accompanied by ticker tape, helium balloons, camera drones, sirens and firecrackers so no one could have been left in any doubt as to the outcome.


Jake and I sometimes come across the players as they leave practice matches and we're happy to report that they are very dog friendly and give him a stroke so I shall have to get Jake a green and white check scarf ready for next season's matches, because they don't seem to have a doggy mascot yet.

  1. A real touch of local colour - as long as it's green and white. :)

  3. B to B, They seem so sweet and innocent (the players, that is - we know Jake is!). Anyway, maybe it's better they stay that way rather than play with the really big guys.

  6. Yeahy for Bodrum. Great they made it into professional league football. HOPEFULLY, however, Fethiyspor won't be playing them next season. We've got some tough matches coming up to stay in 2. Lig. If the worst did happen, don't suppose a little weekend away trip to Bodrum would be a bad thing though, would it. :)

  7. If the worst happens - you'll have a home from home next to Bodrum stadium for away matches.
