Vakt-i Fener Interactive Jumbo Screen at Fenerium
The artist who created Vakt-i Fener had the interests of all his fans in mind, even though the artwork wouldn't be affordable for some of them. To make up for this, he devised an ingenious idea of including an interactive panel during the first presentation to President Ali Koc. The idea was to create a visual interactive screen for fans to experience the Club's unique history. As the project evolved, the Club saw the potential in this idea and decided to transform the state-of-the-art Vakt-i Fener into a fully-fledged interactive screen.
The Club then installed a jumbo-sized touch-screen interactive panel at the famous Fenerium branch right beneath the Fenerbahce Sukru Saracoglu Stadium. The interactive panel allows fans to experience Fenerbahce's rich history by simply touching the screen. Fans can browse the Club's iconic moments, trophies, and other important events that have shaped its history. The interactive panel is a significant milestone for the Club, and it has provided a unique experience for fans who want to connect with the Club's history.
