The Israeli Premier League is known for creating a vast majority of quality players that have honed their skills before heading to Europe’s top leagues. Defender Tal Ben Haim became a star in the Israeli Premier League before heading to the Premier League. Ben Haim then went on to become one of the Premier League’s top players, increasing the reputation of his division which helped to make him the player he became. The IPL also developed superstar striker Mordechai “Motaleh” Spiegler, who is their record scorer. The forward was fantastic for the majority of his career and to this day thousands of fans still wear Maccabi Netanya jerseys with his name on the back. How’s that for a reputation? With teams like Maccabi Tel Aviv, Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Maccabi Haifa dominating at the top of the Israeli Premier League, it’s more about which jersey you want to wear, than whether or not you should become a fan.
