The government approved tonight (Tuesday) a night curfew during the Purim holiday, which will be valid from Thursday to Saturday night, and as a result, fans will not be able to enter the Winner League basketball games during the weekend. Following this, the basketball administration decided to advance the games between Hapoel Holon and Maccabi Rishon LeZion (16:15) and Eilat against Maccabi Tel Aviv (18:30) on Saturday, so that they can be played in front of fans before the closure takes effect.
Just this week the decision was made by the basketball administration to approve the outline proposed by the Ministry of Health and bring 300 fans into the games, while the football administration chose not to do so at this stage and their consideration turns out to be correct, but as stated the basketball administration found a solution.
In contrast to these two games, the meeting between Hapoel Beer Sheva and Maccabi Haifa will remain at 20:00, and will therefore take place without an audience in the hall.
