Sports clubs will be removed from the association
Explaining the content of the bill, Alpe Ozalan, administrative officer of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey and deputy of AK Party Izmir said that the definition of “sports joint stock company / sports club manager” would be introduced with the proposal, and other persons besides board members would also be responsible.
In an interview with the Anadolu Agency two days ago, Ocalan shared details of the law:
“In addition to the chairman and board members, sports joint stock companies have executive members or managers, and sports clubs also have authorized persons, such as sports directors and administrative managers. They will now be responsible for their transactions. Simply put, an officer who participates in the transfer process and does not comply with the manager’s wage ceiling will now be liable for losses due to assets,”
Ozalan said sports clubs would be removed from the association’s qualifications and would be established through registration with the Ministry of Youth and Sports. In this context, Ozalan said that the ground would be prepared for the acquisition of special legal status for sports clubs and shared the information that “at least 7 people will come together to establish a sports club, fill out the necessary documents and apply to the ministry.” Sports and must be registered as a sports club. “
Sports clubs will be able to come together and establish a “higher body”.
Explaining that sports clubs would be able to unite in the form of federations and confederations and establish a “higher body”, Ozalan said, “It is desirable that clubs like the Federation of Amateur Sports Clubs form a union among themselves.” They can say. We’ve paved the way for that. Let’s not forget that sports are a matter of helping and sharing. ” Used phrases.
Noting that the legal framework for the inclusion of sports clubs would be established with the proposed legislation, Ozalan went on to say:
“People who want to participate in sports activities and competitions can now set up a sports joint-stock company, and they don’t have to set up a sports club. They can also set up a sports club and an approved sports joint-stock company.” I want to pave the way for inclusion without losing the sports amateur attitude. “
“We aim to prevent informality and ensure transparency.”
Alpe Ozalan has announced that a balanced budget will be introduced for sports clubs and sports joint stock companies. Emphasizing the need for balanced budgets and “as much income as possible” for clubs and sports joint-stock companies, Ocalan said, “We want that too. We also approve sports federations like the Turkish Football Federation (TFF). We set the conditions for a balanced budget.” I am bringing the spending limit of the party on a legal basis “Our clubs also have to abide by the rules of the UEFA and FIFA financial fair games.”
Ozlan said a certain amount of money would be paid and collected through financial institutions, adding that “every transaction fee has to be paid, such as transfer, repayment, loan repayment, more than about 8,500 lira, through bank, PTT or financial institution. “Thus, informality needs to be prevented. We aim to ensure transparency.” Used phrases.
Legal and criminal liability
Ozalan said the legal and criminal responsibilities of the directors of sports clubs and sports joint stock companies would also be regulated by the law. Emphasizing that this provision is one of the most important articles, Ozalan said, “In case of failure to comply with the rules of loan and receivable allocation, the manager’s wage ceiling and failure to pay more than Rs 8,000. 500 lira from bank, managers with their personal assets Both will be held accountable for the year. They will be sentenced to up to 3 years in prison. They will either leave their jobs or not be released. ” Used phrases.
Noting that the distinction between affiliated and independent sports federations will be eliminated and all federations will be formed as “sports federations”, Ozalan said: “There are 65 federations, of which 5 are called independent. TFF is the only federation with a separate law. It has an autonomous structure and has its own rules. Others are not autonomous. The distinctions between the 64 federations are removed and a single organizational form is created. ” Says
Ozalan says federations are now regulated by law or by presidential decree.
“Conditions must be at least two member national athletes”
Explaining that the condition of the Sports Federation’s headquarters in Ankara would be abolished and a general assembly would be held in Ankara, Ocalan listed the innovations that came with the proposal:
“It was an item that I valued and wanted very much. The number of federation board members will now be 11 permanent and 11 alternate and at least two members will be national athletes. This will require inactive national athletes in the respective sports branch. The requirement for candidates not to be convicted of certain offenses will be expanded and updated.
The criteria for general secretary of the federation is being introduced. They must have 5 years of professional experience and be brought up with the criteria to be a university graduate. It is regulated that a person can be the President of the Federation for a maximum of 3 terms consecutively or intermittently. The 15 per cent written proposal of the delegates for the application for the post of President of the Federation and the fee for the application for nomination will be arranged as per the judicial decision.
The Olympic and Paralympic sports branches will hold general assemblies within 3 months of the end of the relevant Olympic Games, but in the event of an epidemic, the Olympic Games are canceled. In this case, I will arrange when the general session of the federation will be held. The general assembly will be held within 3 months after the cancellation or suspension, if there is a delay of more than 1 year or a decision is taken to cancel or suspend.
“Those who formed the federation themselves will be punished”
Ozalan said the Ministry of Youth and Sports would regulate all activities and transactions and expenditures of sports federations, and that federations with a founding law, called the TFF, would be excluded from the scope of the issue.
Noting that they would also regulate the penalties for federations, confederations, and organizations that set up unauthorized transactions under similar names, Ozalan said, They will be punished. ” Says
Ocalan explained that in the law relating to the establishment and duties of the Turkish Football Federation, the structure of the TFF Arbitration Board would be governed by the decision of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Ozalan said the term of office of the arbitration board would be four years, which would require at least 10 years of professional experience to be a member of the arbitration board, and that the members of the arbitration board had an oath of independence and impartiality.
Heavy approval for “drawer deal”
Stressing that the management system would be regulated, Ocalan noted that a transparent system that prioritizes the interests of football players and clubs would work. Noting that a higher limit would be imposed on management fees, Ozalan said:
“It will be decided that a contract will be signed between football players and managers for a maximum of 2 or 3 years in the form of a notary system. Judicial sanctions are imposed on the parties. If such an agreement is found, the player will be banned from the competition for 1 year, his manager’s license will be revoked completely and the manager who signed the agreement will be fined 100 days to 300 days. Will be punished with. “
“Sports community will now continue to work on tougher ground”
Recalling that they have established a very good sports infrastructure and that they control violence in sports, Ocalan stressed that after the enactment of sports clubs and sports federations, sports communities, clubs and federations will continue their activities. More hard soil. Explaining that there is a Turkey that grows and becomes stronger in each case and puts a statement in the world and no one else can claim, Ocalan says:
“The sports community is very fortunate to have a president who is passionate about sports, especially football. Over the years, we’ve put a lot of emphasis on infrastructure. We’ve built great facilities and stadiums, both technically and physically. There’s no precedent in Europe. The mistake that can easily get your claim denied is to fail. The European Championships and the World Championships are missing from both the club and the national team.
As you can see, our young talents are Abdulkadir in Trabjanspor, Arda in Fenerbahce, Ridvan in Besiktas and Kerem in Galatasaray. We have many talented and good brothers in the Anatolian team. I think this bill will help our players to become world stars.
There is another issue which I have emphasized in this bill; Our fans, who dedicate their hearts and minds to a sports club, accept all kinds of sacrifices without hearing the rain and mud, without knowing the distance, with money from their pockets and even going to the stands to support their team. Buying in club stores and their products will now be questioned even 1 lira, which will come out of their pockets and ask for an account.
