The Ministry of Transportation announced: "Due to the importance of the game, and the thousands of fans who are expected to come from the central region, Israel Railways will suspend the works for the construction of the electric rail network and will operate special trains at the end of the game towards Tel Aviv.
"At the end of the game, special trains will be operated in a full system and travel from the Haifa station to the Carmel station Hagana in Tel Aviv through the coastal line stations, as well as special trains to Nahariya, with a stop at the intermediate stations.
Also, Israel Railways will provide additional trains that will be operated if necessary and according to demand.
