Epic clubs deserve their own topic.
A while go someone here told me Eilat had one club, called Bnei Eilat, playing in the 6th and lowest level. Now wikipedia in their overview of the Israeli league system says they are no longer in the lowest division but have promoted to 5th division. I know Wikipedia is not always correct though, so can anyone check if this is correct? The sites I found having results of all division, are all in Hebrew. As Eilat quite interests me (for foreigners it is the most likely city to easily find a job in) I would quite like to know if they have indeed promoted.
I tell you, these guys are on their way up to the top. In a few years they will be in the highest division, playing Haifa, Beitar and Maccabi Tel Aviv in front of a sold out newly built stadium in Eilat. I think these guys will make it big
Just think about it. They have all it needs to build a top team. Players worldwide will love to play for them and live in a town that is sunny and pleasant 12 months per year. There is lots of money in the local tourism industry, so funding the construction of a 20000 capacity stadium will be no problem. Fans of visiting teams (both Israeli teams or European teams when playing Eilat in the UEFA Cup) will love to visit the city and spend some days in the sun combined with a football game. I tell you, Bnei Eilat will be the next top team in Israeli football, Beitar and Maccabi Haifa better watch out because a new force is rising
Mark my words, in less than 10 years Eilat is going to play Juventus and Real Madrid in the Champions League
