Demirören takes over TFF chair
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet
AA PhotoFormer Beşiktaş Chairman Yıldırım Demirören is the new chair of the Turkish Football Federation (TFF), daily Hürriyet reported today.
Demirören became the TFF’s 41st president after being elected with 221 out of 253 votes.
Bursaspor officials left the building following the voting, claiming that Demirören was not a candidate that would remain "at an equal distance" to every team and that "chaos would increase."
Demirören announced yesterday he was giving up on the money the club owes after he ended his eight-year stint as Beşiktaş chairman.
