Do the derby exist? After calling on the police to find a solution, the league manager also sent letters to sports minister Miri Regev and Minister of Internal Security Gilad Arden on Thursday regarding the police demands for the derby on Wednesday night in Drive Inn.
The manager works alongside Hapoel Tel Aviv and supports her demand to reduce the amount of policing and security per game that creates very high costs for the host.
Letters sent to ministers read: "The Israeli police have decided to place a force game of 80 police officers and 92 security guards at a cost of NIS 120,000, which represents a significant increase in the amount of security compared to previous Derby games. Great for groups. Because we don't want to hurt the crowd and raise prices to cover expenses we will ask for your intervention and help in resolving the issue. "
