About Aziz Yıldırım
Aziz Yıldırım (born 2 November 1952) is currently the 52nd chairman of the Turkish Turkcell Süper Lig club Fenerbahçe. He is currently serving his fifth two-year term since coming to helm. He has a degree in civil engineering.Career Yıldırım was a professional football player with Diyarbakırspor and Düzcespor. He retired from professional football at the age of 27 in 1979 and started a construction business after retiring from professional football. For two years, he acted as chairman at Anadolu Üsküdar football club during 1981-82 and 1982-83 seasons. He resumed his career in football administration in 1990 when he became Director of Football at Fenerbahçe in the 1990-1991 and 1991-1992 seasons. Afterwards, he took up the post of chairman at Düzcespor between 1993-1995. He became Fenerbahçe's chairman in 1998 after Ali Şen's resignation - a position he still holds. During his reign, the professional football team had four Turkish League Championships. Under his leadership, significant changes have been made in the club's infrastructure: Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium was expanded to a capacity of 55,000 from 30,000. Another significant mark of his success was evident in the 2006-2007 season when over 100,000 Fenerbahçe membership cards were sold. The stadium's modern outlook gave the city of Istanbul the right to host UEFA Cup championship in 2009. Moreover, the club's financial portfolio changed dramatically under his leadership. Before 1998, significant portion of the club's revenues came from media deals. By building a modern stadium and utilizing the vast potential of the millions of Fenerbahçe fans, he decreased this percentage down to about 40%. All of this has been achieved by the club's own resources.
