How to register?

  1. Registration and payments are done as teams. The first thing you should do is to send a short email to inform the IFDA that your team wishes to register. The email should contain the team's name, relevant contacts (coach/ captain), number of players and the team's location.

  2. By October 29th 2017, you should send this form to the IFDA. The form contains the following information: first and last name, id/ passport number, date of birth, phone number and email.

  3. Remind the players on your team that they should purchase a player's card and get checked by a sports doctor prior to the opening event. Turn them to *this link* to purchase a player's card.

  4. If you have yet to start a sponsorship process with a sports club, now is a good time to contact us for assistance. Unifying as part of a sports club or union could fund your team a large part of your expenses such as team fees, player fees, and even uniforms. It could save you thousands of shekels, now you know!
