 Happoel Tel aviv
Topic Originator: 1970par  
Date:   Mon 8 Oct 17:42

A few of the Trailblazers going to see the Happoel game tonight, we are at the stadium now, it’s a temporary home for them a few miles out of the city

Tickets were around £25 with a pre match beer around £6.50, kebab scoffed, you do need lots of sheckles here with everything expensive

I’ve never seen a club match in another country, something different

That Cypriot team we played back in the late 60s were named Apoel (spelling ?) - is there any connection in the names ?

Half time 0. 0, home team well on top but could not hit a coos erse with a banjo
Good lead up play but terrible finishing

Loving the atmosphere though, the home fans have never stopped singing the whole of the game, really supporting their team, very impressive

Scotland fans will need to be in good voice come Thursday

Does the 8500 include non-attending season ticket holders?

APOEL is a Greek acronym. Can't remember what it stands for.

Hapoel is an Israeli sporting organisation, as is Macabbi. One, Hapoel I think, is the workers'/union one.

parsfan is absolutely correct.

"APOEL FC (Greek: ΑΠΟΕΛ; short for Αθλητικός Ποδοσφαιρικός Όμιλος Ελλήνων Λευκωσίας, Athletikos Podosferikos Omilos Ellinon Lefkosias, "Athletic Football Club of Greeks of Nicosia")"

"The club name, "Hapoel", translates to "The Worker", and combined with its red Hammer and sickle badge represents the club ties to Marxism, Socialism, and the working class. For seven decades, the club was owned by the Histadrut, Israel's national trade union center."

Wikipedia is my friend.

Left with 20 to go to get our train, still 0 0, don’t think the local brothels will be populated by the Happoel players

0. 0 the final score, the second half continued as the first half with the home team not able to score

I have visited each country (more than once) so I am OK with geography - just wondered if there was any connection between the names linguistically in the eastern Med.

Thanks to those who clarified the lack thereof.
