Centilmen Besiktas'i Centilmenler Kupasinda gormek istiyoruz. The FA den ornek davranis ve Fair Play cagrisinda bulunuyoruz.

A request from The FA to show an exemplary example to the world that persecution for crowd troubles for one club over another should never be tolerated any time any where.

After many years of crowd troubles in the football stands both in Turkey and abroad, and the most recent of them all during the return leg of the Turkish semi cup final game between Fenerbahce SK (the host) and Besiktas JK at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium. 19/04/18.

During the game, players were prevented from taking corners on multiple occasions due to projectiles being thrown by the home supporters onto the pitch, resulting in the referee having to stop the game multiple times to have announcements made as Uefa directives suggest for such occasions. This further escelated to the referee having to call a time out to the beautiful game and a postponement after the Besiktas JK manager was wounded on the head with a projectile needing 5 stitches and a trip to the hospital.

The home team regardless of whom that team may be, is responsible for security measures during a game. Besiktas JK has taken a stance to show that these behaviours should not go without punishment and decided to not turn up to the postponed match that the Turkish FA decided to continue from the postponed time (57th minute).

Besiktas JK has been an exemplary example to both Turkish football and global football, being re-nound for their gentleman stance and fair play being at the fore front of its opperations. The club representing their nation as a national team against Greece, and internationally introducing soccer to the USA national team on a club level. The first local and domestic Turkish leagues where formed in Turkey by the British and both British and Turkish teams once had the privilege of competing in the same domestic and local tournaments alongside Besiktas JK.

Besiktas' defiance to set an example to the Turkish FA for being unable to come to a lawful conclusion to a controversial cup game that would hold to account and descipline the team responsible for security will result in Besiktas JK being removed from the Turkish Cup in the 2018/19 season.

 As a British Citizen and Besiktas supporter I request The Football Association consider that Besiktas may compete as a one off visitor to the FA Cup competition for the 2018/19 season and once again give and given the opportunity to compete in an English formed competition and repeat the beautiful history of sportsmanship.
