Only two weeks before the Tel Aviv Judo Grand Slam, ticket sales opened tonight (Thursday) for the second event in the branch held in Israel in the last year, after the successful Masters in December in Jerusalem.
The sale of tickets was delayed, due to budgetary problems that called into question the existence of the event.
After exerting pressure from the Judo Association headed by Moshe Ponti, the amount promised by the Ministry of Sports was completed at the last minute, which will allow it to exist in order.
Currently, about 350 athletes from 50 countries have registered, this is even before Israeli athletes have registered, and many more are expected to register after this weekend, at the end of the Paris Grand Slam, which will make the event here one of the largest in recent years.
In addition, several countries that have not yet competed in the events held here in recent years were registered, and in addition, a delegation of three refugee athletes is expected to arrive for the first time, including the Iranians Majid Kaban and Mohammad Rashnonzahad, the Afghan Nigara Shaheen (63 kg), who is in the program of the world refugee team of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and previously took part in the Tokyo Games in the individual and team competition.
Those who want to order tickets can do so on the "Lan" website, where a daily ticket for the qualifying stage will cost 55 shekels and for the medal fights 105 shekels.
A daily subscription (for preliminaries and finals) will cost NIS 125 and for VIP NIS 155.
A subscription for all three days will cost NIS 305.
In the meantime, the Israeli men's and women's national teams landed today for the Paris Grand Slam that will open on Saturday, in the huge Barsi hall, but not yet in the competition hall that will host the Olympic games next year, after Barsi will host the apparatus gymnastics competitions, while a new hall will be built for judo near the tower Eiffel.
