Speaking on behalf of the Basketball Provincial Representative Office, which tries to raise awareness for the advancement of basketball in Kahramanmaraş, President Mustafa Dağlı said, “Our struggles began with the Young Boys and Girls category within the scope of School Sports. The Stars will struggle in the coming days. Basketball is an exciting sport. We are excited about this in our schools. Demand is pretty good. I wish success to all our schools. We are working to make up for the lack of basketball in our city. As clubs, referees and athletes, we are a whole and a good family. We will organize many competitions in our city for the development of basketball. It is our desire for all basketball-loving athletes, referees and table officials to stick together more than ever and to do their duties with love. We would like to thank Cemil Boz, the Provincial Director of Kahramanmaraş Youth Services and Sports, who supported us in every way. As Kahramanmaraş Basketball, very important days are waiting for us. Together, we will announce the name of this community to the places it deserves. We are all a family and we join our day and night for this community,” he said.
