Summary of today's events in sports, 27.12 (Sport1)
After a long struggle, campaigns, interviews and petitions to the court, today (Tuesday) the elections for the head of the football association were held, and at the end of it, a new-old chairman was elected: Shino Zoertz, who defeated his opponent Oren Hasson.
This will be the second term of Zoertz, 50, in office. In October 2018, he was elected for the first time and replaced Ofer Eini, but submitted his resignation in less than four months, after there was no vote on the cancellation of the foreign player in the youth leagues. "There is no way I will return to this position," he said at the time. "Unfortunately, the structure of the football association does not allow the changes in which I believe."

Beginning in the late afternoon, representatives of the clubs in Israel, in all the men's and women's leagues, flocked to Shafiim to elect the management of the football association as well as the chairman of the association.
Three lists competed for a place on the association's eight-member board. The list of the Hapoel center headed by Oren Hasson, the list of the center Maccabi led by Avi Luzon who is not running for the presidency of the association and the independent list led by Shino Zoaretz. Each football club had the right to choose when the Premier League and National League teams had a higher score than the lower league teams.
