Celebrations in Samaria After the promotion of the Elitzur Shomron basketball team to the national league with a victory over Hapoel Kfar Saba • The officials in the regional council began to prepare for the next season

History in Samaria.

After many years in the lower leagues, yesterday (Sunday) the Elitzur Shomron basketball team defeated Hapoel Kfar Saba, and qualified for the national basketball league.

When for the first time in the league's history, a team from Samaria will play in it. 

The thrilling game ended with a result of 78:88 for the newcomer. 

Elitzur Shomron has become the first team from all over Samaria to advance to the national league, thus joining Maccabi Ma'ale Adumim, which was promoted to the national league last year, leading to the presence of two teams from Judea and Samaria in the secondary league in Israel.

Elitzur Shomron consists of players from across the regional council, and is supported by budgets and assistance from the Samaria Council.

This is one of the fastest promotions recorded for the team at the bottom of the table, without renowned players and experience in the professional leagues.

Prior to the promotion, the professional bodies in the Samaria Regional Council began to prepare for the preparation of conditions for the National League, the expansion of the team's home hall and its transformation into a professional hall, the expansion of the coaching staff and staff, and funding of budgets

Over the past few years, the head of the Samaria Council, Yossi Dagan, has worked to promote the council's basketball team, and to assist as much as possible in order to make it professional and skilled.

Which will lead her to qualify for the top leagues in Israel.

When within two years, the team broke out of the bottom of the second division and finished the season in first place in the first division, and with an exciting immigration to the national league.

About 6 years ago, the Samaria Regional Council set itself a goal to reach the Premier League, earmarked budgets and an orderly strategic plan for it, and since then it has been steadily climbing.
