Formed in 2016 with the aim of boosting girls’ self confidence

and promoting gender equality, the “Girls on the Pitch” Aca-

demy organises week-long camps to introduce football to girls

in Turkey under the tutelage of a professional trainer, to instil

in them a sense of team spirit and to promote football as a fun

sport that can be played and enjoyed by anybody. Seminars and

workshops are also held during the camp, giving the girls a

chance to expand their cultural and artistic horizons.

This year, 50 young girls between the ages of 10 and 12 took

part in the event, which was organised and run by volunteers

from the Bosphorus University Sports Club and sponsored by

Tekfen Real Estate. By providing their boots, Tekfen gave them

the chance to take their first steps onto the football field.

Tekfen Real Estate on their side

Tekfen Real Estate was one of the sponsors of the “Girls on the

Pitch” Academy, an enterprise that aims to introduce more

girls to football in Turkey. 50 young girls took to the pitch for

the first time with boots supplied by Tekfen Real Estate.
