Taking it to Turkey - FC spreads the word

FC United is spreading the word in Turkey this week at the “Let’s be Football Friends” conference in Istanbul. FC United’s community and education manager Robin Pye is speaking at the event, which has been organised by Turkish sports agency FC Sports Marketing. The conference has brought together a leading panel of speakers to share their knowledge and experience of making the most of the football brand, engagement with fans, sponsors and local communities.

It’s a real testament to the global influence of FC United that the club has been asked to address the conference. Speaking ahead of the 9 April event, Robin Pye said: “It’s always gratifying to have the international reach of FC United’s reputation confirmed by invites such as this. FC members shouldn’t forget how our story and our achievements as a club have captured the imagination of fans across the globe. Being invited to high-profile events like this shows that fans-owned football has much to offer those looking to apply the latest techniques and methods in order to better involve the wider football community,” he said.
