FK Partizan marked 20th year of Partizan-Teleoptik Sports Centre last night in presence of numerous guests, including those who made this venture happen along with former partners and sponsors.
This event was also attended by FK Partizan sponsors, club`s board members and employees, media representatives and more.
Guests were greeted by FK Partizan Marketing Director Predrag Vujovic followed by screening of “Teleoptik – 20 Years After” video short.
– We are celebrating 20th year anniversary of our jewel – Teleoptik SC. It was built in quite difficult circumstances, back in the days of state turmoil. I`d like to thank all those involved, those who made this sports centre magical and excellent to this day. I`d particularly like to thank Zarko Zecevic who was the key man behind this venture. He believed in our joint vision and his persistence and hard work made this happen, said former Club President now Honorary President Ivan Curkovic.
Former FK Partizan General Secretary Zarko Zecevic:
– This would never happen without cooperation with FK Teleoptik and especially late Mr. Jokic, former FK Teleoptik President. Back in the days, we visited several locations around Belgrade but I believe we made a right choice to station ourselves here. Upon Sports Centre opening, we had a visit from UEFA President Lennart Johansson who said this complex is way ahead of its times. All of us, members of great Partizan family, should be proud of our achievement.
FK Partizan is now planning to build a 4-storey boarding school for club`s youth academy attendees.
