The boys’ under-17 team of Ethiopia will land in Israel tomorrow (Monday) for the first time ever and it is expected to hold two friendly matches against the corresponding Israeli team under the guidance of Gadi Bromer at the Berfeld Stadium in Rishon Lezion. The first game will be played on Tuesday (June 22), the second game on Thursday (June 24). By the way, free admission for fans.
The arrival of the Ethiopian team in Israel and the friendly matches between the teams are a continuation of the development of the ties between the two associations, which began with a conversation between the heads of the associations at the end of January this year. On Thursday, before the opening of the second game between the teams, a signing ceremony will be held for a memorandum of understanding between the two associations in the presence of the chairmen and CEOs.
Yossi Sharabi, CEO of the Football Association: “The groundbreaking cooperation between us and the Ethiopian Association is another significant step in strengthening the ties and deepening the cooperation between the Football Association and parallel associations around the world. It goes without saying that the connection with the Ethiopian Association is unique and emotional due to the fact that hundreds of thousands of members of the community are the pride of Israeli society in a variety of fields and certainly in sports in general and football in particular. I am convinced that the two teams will enjoy a homely atmosphere that will only strengthen the relations between the countries and the associations. “
