Handball: The opening round – Hapoel Ashdod against Maccabi Rishon LeZion


By the way, the method of playing in the league will change in the coming season. It will include 13 teams, will open with the first round (12 games per team), and at the end the league will be split into an upper house (six teams) and a lower house (seven teams), in which two rounds of play will be played (with points from the first round considered and dragged to the second stage).

At the end of the home stage, the six upper house teams and the two who finish first in the lower house (8 in total) will start the playoffs in the quarterfinals to determine the champion (quarter and semi-final playoff series in a format of up to 3 games. Finals up to five). The two teams that finish last in the lower house games will be relegated to the National League, and the team that finishes in 11th place will participate in the test matches against the team in second place in the National League, so that next season the league will return to a 12-team format.
