Fans of rival teams have marched together during the protests around Turkey. REUTERS photoAn online Fenerbahçe fan group has called on all football supporters to watch the Turkish Super Cup final side by side.
The group, 12 Numara, made the call to the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) to hold the Aug. 11 Super Cup final between Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium and said all fans should watch it altogether.
The call came in the wake of a newfound friendship between Turkish football’s fiercest rivals, Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe and Beşiktaş, whose fan groups have joined forces to fight police repression during the ongoing Istanbul Gezi Park protests.
