Hapoel Tel Aviv and Maccabi Tel Aviv will meet in the Premier League playoff final series for a fiery derby that gets underway on Thursday, but off the court the winds are already raging.

In parallel with the first game of the series, Israel's youth soccer team will advance to the semifinals of the World Cup. In order to avoid a scheduling conflict, various parties examined the possibility of moving the first game scheduled in advance to Thursday.

While Maccabi Tel Aviv gave its approval to the move, Hapoel Tel Aviv objected due to the desire to equalize the preparation and rest time that the two teams would receive ahead of the game.

The club asked the union to put on the agenda at tomorrow's board meeting the application of the definition of "state of emergency" to the game. Activating such a situation will allow the Yellows not to transfer the 1,500 tickets intended for Hapoel Tel Aviv fans.
