Summary of the victory of Beitar Jerusalem 1:2 over Hapoel Tel Aviv (Sport1)
Beitar Jerusalem is currently starting to make preliminary preparations for the next season on a financial level. The salary of the players and the professional staff, which this year was NIS 13 million, will increase slightly at best. She will have to pay a minimum amount of NIS 7-8 million from the commitment next season.
This season's revenue from subscriptions and tickets was indeed above expectations and the team still expects revenue from the semi-finals of the Cup and possibly from the final as well if it qualifies for it.
Winning the cup and a ticket to Europe can add several million shekels in the summer from hosting the Conference League qualifiers and bonuses for results there.
One of the problems is that at the moment there are many things in Beitar that are up in the air and the club decided not to make plans with money that does not exist. The club's biggest hope for the summer comes precisely from Greece, from the possible sale of Liwai Garcia by A.A.K. Athens. The Trinidadian is having a season A record with 11 goals and 4 assists and the Greek club has already received offers in the amount of 10 million euros and more.

On paper, in each sale approximately 40 percent of the profits above the 2.5 million euros paid by A.A.K. will be transferred to Beitar, with the Yellow-Blacks having to transfer half of the amount to the agents and the player. On the other hand, Beitar's legal team has claims that the agents There cannot be a part in a player's card and it is possible that the issue will still come up for discussion at FIFA. Even last season in a celebratory era, when the 2.5 million were transferred to Beitar, 900 thousand euros that reached the agents did not go through and the team used the money for regular operations.
The agents and the player claim the same money through FIFA and it is possible that even in the case of a sale this summer the issue will reach the institutions, unless the parties reach a compromise on a certain amount that the agents and the player will receive.
About two months ago, AK offered Beitar more than a million euros for relinquishing its share of Garcia's ticket and Barak Abramov refused. He understands the market and the numbers in question for the striker and knows that only an injury can prevent the sale of the player for at least 10 million euros in the summer. That is why he is waiting patiently. If this happens, it will have a significant positive effect on Beitar Jerusalem's budget next season.
