I thank everyone who supported. The point I want to mention here is that we did not make the exterior design of our new bus. Our club built it himself. There were also rumors that the logo of Our Room was not visible in the photos of the bus. Our club officials also returned to us on this issue and informed us that the logo of our Sivas Chamber of Commerce and Industry will be placed on the bus. This week the new bus will come to Sivas. Our bus will take a tour in the square and we will deliver our bus next to our Congress Building. We hope that our Sivasspor will be the champion this season and we will take the championship tour together with our new bus ”.
