On Wednesday (10:00 p.m., Sport 5) Maccabi Haifa will host Red Star Belgrade at the Sami Ofer Stadium in one of the green club's most important games in recent years, as part of the playoff phase of the Champions League qualifiers.

The Haifa stadium is expected to be full of fans, with quite a few more fans expected to arrive in the area to try to get a ticket.

Thousands of fans who did not arrive with their cars could have been stuck without a way back home, this after work was scheduled on the train, which was supposed to stop operating before the end of the game.

This evening, after an appeal from Member of Knesset Yuli Edelstein and after another appeal from the CEO of the Greens - Itzik Ovadia, Member of Knesset Merav Michaeli decided to postpone the works and allow reinforcement of train traffic.

"Dear Maccabi Haifa fans!

I know that there is an important game in two days and apart from winning, it is important to have a way to get to it and return from it safely," Michaeli wrote in the official announcement, "that's why we stopped the train electrification works, we will increase the train's activity so that you will have service both on the way and especially on the way back, and as much of it as possible.

So take public transportation, the winning way."
