At the moment, Eda Erdem Dündar, the captain of the women’s volleyball team Fenerbahçe Opet, is more popular than the world-famous star playing for the men’s football section of the sports club, Mesut Özil.
Since last season, the sports club Fenerbahçe (Fenerbahçe Spor Kulübü) has been offering on auction the jerseys worn by the athletes in football, basketball, and volleyball branches.
