Among the supporters of the Istanbul 2020 Olympics candidature process, Sabancı Holding's Chairman Güler Sabancı made a statement on the election process.
In her statement, Sabancı said: "To become the host of the 2020 Summer Olympics, a target-driven and professionally executed process has been displayed. We kept racing with absolute determination and continued until the final. However, despite getting so close for the first time, we, unfortunately, will not be able to host the Olympics. First of all, I would like to thank all the people who devotedly worked for this. Now, we have a lot to do. We need to continue endeavoring with the spirit of Olympics and prepare for the next elections. We need to work in order to carry out policies and plans which will encourage young people into sports, make sports a part of life and increase the awareness of sports within the society."
