Football team Galatasaray Istanbul's new Tuerk Telekom Arena

Connections, with over 113,000 metres of high-quality KLOTZ cables

The friendly game between football teams Galatasaray Istanbul and Ajax Amsterdam on 15 January 2011 was the opening match of the Istanbul club's new football stadium, and not even the 0:0 result could dampen the celebrations. Completed after three years of construction, the new "Tuerk Telekom Arena“ holds 52,500 spectators and is Turkey's most modern football stadium.
