The coronavirus pandemic will pose challenges to the teams in the upcoming season as well, and the Israeli League squads will have to deal with a particular one.
According to Sport5, the Ministry of Health will grant entry of foreign players to Israel by presenting a vaccination/recovering certificate. The unvaccinated will be required to sign a document in which they commit to being vaccinated. A player who refuses to sign – will not receive an entry visa. A seven-day quarantine is also necessary upon entry.
Some teams were already issued a warning for not having the above-mentioned commitment in the case of several players. The start of the competition has been postponed by a week to, among other things, allow the teams to prepare for the latest protocol.
