The Israeli Premier League, also known as Ligat Ha’Al or Tel Aviv Stock Exchange League for sponsorship reasons, is the top-tier football category in Israel. Each year, fourteen teams fight for the title.
As is the case with most leagues around the world, the Israeli Premier League works under a promotion-relegation system. Two clubs are relegated to the Liga Leumit by the end of the season, with two teams from that league taking their place in the Israeli top-flight.
All Israel Premier League clubs play 26 regular-season games. Once that stage is over, the top six clubs in the league enter the championship playoffs, while the remaining eight enter the relegation round. The teams that make it to the championship round face their rivals twice, while the other eight only play against their rivals once. The team with the most points after the championship round win the title, while the two teams with the lowest amount of points are relegated to the Liga Leumit.
The Israeli Premier League hands four spots to play European competitions in the subsequent season. The winner of the tournament enters the preliminary rounds of the UEFA Champions League, while the runners-up and the third-placed side enter the preliminary stages of the UEFA Europa League. An additional spot is awarded to the Israeli cup champions.
Did you know? Maccabi Tel Aviv, Maccabi Haifa, Hapoel Tel Aviv, Beitar Jerusalem and Hapoel Be’er Sheva are the most dominating teams in the Ligat Ha’Al.
