“Accommodation, transfer, security, places where the matches will be held and health, we worked by thinking about all the details. We went many times, we made on-site investigations. Meetings were held with the relevant people. We would like to thank our Istanbul Governor and Deputy Governor, police, Turkish Football Federation and officials for hosting us. We heard very good words about the organization from the World Amputee Presidency and the European Amputee Presidency. They told us that there was a great organization preparation. This organization was not held well in many countries. We have witnessed these situations. “We will organize an organization to show their talents and abilities. I hope we will organize an organization worthy of our country and our federation.”
