Kıbrıs tops Omaç Başat Football Tournament
A TEAM from Kıbrıs, the Turkish-language sister newspaper of Cyprus Today, is top of the league in the annual Omaç Başat Football Tournament.
The competition is organised by the Cyprus Turkish Sports Writers’ Association (KTSYD) in memory of journalist Mr Başat, who “devoted his whole life to sport” and became an inspiration to the country’s youth. A founder member of KTSYD, he died in May 2014.
Sponsored by Limassol Kooperatif Bank with additional support from mobile phone provider Telsim, the league’s second games saw teams from the BRT state broadcaster and Kıbrıs emerge as winners.
BRT beat a Basın-Sen (Press Union) side 7-5, while Kıbrıs despatched Diyalog newspaper 5-2.
