President Büyükkılıç, together with Hes Kablo Kayserispor President Berna Gözbaşı, made the kickoff of the first tournament in the High Altitude Camp Center, which will make Erciyes the center of sports.
The High Altitude Camp Center, whose first 2 fields have been completed by the Metropolitan Municipality and planned an indoor sports hall and swimming pool with 6 fields, opened its doors with the Erciyes Cup Football Tournament. Metropolitan Mayor Dr. Memduh Büyükkılıç attended the opening of the four-way tournament between Kayserispor, Konyaspor, Eskişehirspor and Adana Demirspor U19 teams, together with Hes Kablo Kayserispor Club President Berna Gözbaşı.
Mayor Büyükkılıç, in the statement he made with Hes Kablo Kayserispor President Berna Gözbaşı before the kick-off of the tournament, stated that the High Altitude Camp Center will increase the value of Erciyes and make Erciyes the center of sports.
“A quadruple tournament is currently being held here. Our two football fields that we finished in this region, which we call the High Altitude Camp Center at an altitude of 1800 meters, started to serve with dressing rooms and a fitness center. I announce here that we will build six more fields of the same standard that we have put out to tender. Our aim is to call this value in Kayseri as the High Altitude Camp Center as our Erciyes deserves. We want foreign currency going abroad not to go unnecessarily. On the contrary, we want to ensure that teams from abroad come to our city and country. All of our intentions and efforts are in this direction. With previous studies, agreements had been made with teams from abroad, but had to be interrupted due to the limitation in travel due to the pandemic process. But we believe this is the beginning. Hopefully, our contractor company, which will do this work in the upcoming period, will ensure that teams from abroad and domestically come to Kayseri. Currently, all hotels in Erciyes are fully occupied. There is also a cycling-related camping. A group will come from America, if there is no problem in terms of flight. In short, we share that we think of using this place as a camp center and that we want it to be remembered as such. We would like to welcome our teams, especially Kayserispor, Eskişehirspor, Konyaspor and Adanademir sports. We hope that these tournaments will continue after the four tournament. This is a beginning. We are making this start with our very valuable Kayserispor President ”.
"OUR ERCİYES WILL BE ASSESSED ACTIVELY FOR 12 MONTHS"
Erciyes not only with the investments made in Turkey, one of the world's most important mountain is pointing Büyükkılıç, his speech continued:
“Last week, with the efforts of our dear minister Mehmet Özhaseki, we continue our efforts to find hot water by going down 2200 meters with the signature protocol signed with MTA. The data show that hot water will come out from here. Our Erciyes behaves with his usual generosity. I hope we will take our measures. We also do this work and believe that hot water will be found from here. In addition, we enjoy seeing that the construction of four new hotels has started, some of them have been laid, some are in the project phase, and with these works, the number of our hotels has increased. Our aim is to call this value in Kayseri as the High Altitude Camp Center as our Erciyes deserves. Foreign currencies going abroad do not go unnecessarily. On the contrary, to ensure that teams from abroad come to our city and country ”.
Noting that they are working with an understanding that strives to carry Erciyes to better points, Büyükkılıç said, “To carry out studies with an understanding that strives to carry Kayseripor, which is an important brand for us, to better points. Our esteemed president, with his success in his field of business and of course the advantage of being a woman manager, continues to work with great effort and effort to our Kayserispor. As you have followed, there are good observations. This is the right approach, ”he said.

Hes Kablo Kayserispor Club President Berna Gözbaşı, who participated in the Erciyes Cup Football Tournament with President Büyükkılıç, said, “I am very happy as a club president to be here in this facility. I would like to thank our esteemed president for their investment here. Because you know, we go to the camp twice a year. One of them is high altitude camps in summer. It is a great pleasure for us to have a high altitude camp right now right under our noses and in our city where we are given priority. Such an investment in Erciyes will make a great contribution to our city in this period when tourism is looking for different destinations, new investments and new opportunities. It will be possible to come here not only in winter but also in summer. You know that the team will not have 30 people, the whole technical team will come, the management will come, the press will come. This will also contribute to the economy of the city. Therefore, I would like to thank our esteemed president, who put forward this investment with such a vision and made such a convenience for our club ”.
