In the early 1990s Bursaspor's ultra group Teksas had a leader called, "Abdulkerim Bayraktar". He went to study in Ankara, whilst in the city he started attending Ankaragücü games and started building ties between the two clubs. In 1993 however, his life was cut short during his military service when he was killed by terrorists. This tragic event bought Bursaspor and Ankaragücü even closer together. During the first game after his death, Bursaspor organized a tribute to him, the events which happened next cemented the brotherhood between these two teams. A large group of Ankaragücü supporters made their way onto the pitch and unveiled a large banner reading, Our brother Abdul will never die, he lives on in our hearts. The two supporter groups united and hundreds of Ankaragücü ultras attended his funeral. From that day on Bursaspor supporters would chant Ankaragücü's name in the 6th minute of every home game, 06 being significant due to 06 being Ankara's city code. Ankaragücü supporters in return chant Bursaspor's name during the 16th minute, 16 being Bursa's city code. When the two sides play, the supporters sit together, its one of the rare occasions in which ultra from opposing teams watch a game together in a mixed environment, they bring BursAnkara scarfs (a merger of the two cities' names) to the games and create an atmosphere full of mutual respect.
