TURKEY - 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup

Turkey launches Official Emblem
WEB SITE : http://www.fifa.com/u20worldcup/index.html




In just under a year, the first ball of the FIFA U-20 World Cup Turkey 2013 will be kicked, and to mark the occasion, the Local Organising Committee held a launch at the stunning location of Istanbul’s Ciragan Palace on the Bosphorus today.

The emblem launch and match schedule announcement were beamed live on national TV, with Turkey’s famous actress and singer Demet Tuncer overseeing proceedings.

The Turkish Football Federation’s General Secretary Emre Alkin explained how excited the country’s football fans are to see stars from around the world next summer. “The current FIFA Ballon D’Or holder, Lionel Messi scored both goals in the final of the 2005 edition in The Netherlands, when Argentina beat Nigeria” he explained.


The competition kicks-off on 21 June 2013 with matches in Istanbul and Kayseri. Kayseri will host the official opening ceremony. Antalya, Bursa, Gaziantep, Rize and Trabzon are the other five venues.

Turkey has already been allotted place C1, meaning they will play their three group games at the Black Sea coast venues of Trabzon and Rize, with Istanbul hosting the final match on Saturday 13 July.

Speaking to the invited guests representing members of the Turkish football community, host clubs and cities, sponsors and media, FIFA’s Head of Competition for the U-20 World Cup Inaki Alvarez said: “This will be the largest ever football event held in Turkey, and it presents a unique opportunity. Turkey has always been renowned as a bridge between the east and west, and this competition provides the country with a chance to promote itself to supporters from around the world.”

In total, there will be 52 matches, played across 23 days, with 24 teams in 7 venues. The Turkish Football Federation is already targeting a new ticket sales record to surpass the efforts of Colombia in 2011, with a total ticketing inventory of just under 1.5million.

It is, but it's omnipresent in Turkey. The Turks adapted it from the Greeks and you can't escape it in modern-day Turkey. (Was just there last week.)

It's probably the most typical Turkish thing. It dates back to the dates when Turks used to live in central asia. During the Ottoman period it spread all over Ottoman territory.

Quote:
A nazar (Turkish: nazar boncuğu) is an eye-shaped amulet believed to protect against the evil eye ("evil eye", from nazar and "amulet" from boncuğu). The word "nazar" is derived from the Arabic نظر, "sight" or "seeing". In Central Asia, during the ages of Tengrism, people held similar superstitions like horseshoes, garlic, wolf's tooth, dried thorn, lead, stones; but the crystal blue eye has always been the most popular one.[1]
It is common in Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Armenia, Iran, Afghanistan, Greece, Cyprus and Azerbaijan[2], where the nazar is often hung in homes, offices, cars, children's clothing, or incorporated in jewellery.[3]

From reading the Turkish newspaper websites today, it's only the Türk Telekom Arena (aka Galatasaray S.K's ground) that will host matches in Istanbul.

In Turkey, wherever you look, you'll meet plenty of eyes looking at you. Glass evil eye beads. It is common in the Turkish culture to give a gift of a blue nazar Boncugu (nazar boncuk) or the evil eye bead as it is more widely known. People hang a small evil eye amulet from the rear view mirror of their car, keep several small evil eye beads or evil eye charms on hand to give to guests, hang an evil eye near their door in the home or office. Glass evil eyes are worn, in the form of jewelry; evil eye bracelet, evil eye necklace, evil eye anklet, gold or silver evil eye charms and evil eye pendant, evil eye earring - ring and blue evil eye talisman...



Here it is a real evil eye bead paradise.
